See you in Shanghai

Join us at the Highered & EFMD Global Talent Summit hosted May 8-10, Four Seasons Shanghai.


The conference will bring together Career Services and Human Resources professionals in an unprecedented, unique forum in China to strategize on their global recruitment initiatives and hiring objectives. They will come away with a practical toolkit of resources and connections to be implemented, matching top talent to international organizations. There will be a focus on the employment needs and challenge for Chinese talent returnees.

This year’s summit, China on the Rise: Your Talent Roadmap to Success, will kick off in one of the world’s most vibrant, buzzing cities where opportunities for strategic partnerships have no limits. With China’s rise to the world’s top 10 most powerful economies, there is increased demand for higher education to provide both international educational and professional opportunities. One in every six international students now comes from China, while Asian students make up more than a quarter of the world’s mobile students, prompting many career service leaders to think strategically when helping to place their students.

“As a business school with a large Chinese student population ensuring we have the best connections possible in China is a strategic priority for us to help our students embark on a successful career” says Ewan Henry, Employer Relations Consultant at the University of Nottingham. “This Summit will be a chance to meet a range of employers and start a conversation with them about how we can work together for their benefit and ours. I look forward to it!”

Geely, Chinaccelorator, SOSV, and BP, Alibaba, Deutcha Bank, CreditEase are among the corporate attendees, including the career service professionals from National University of Singapore, Cass Business School, Imperial Business College, and Audencia Business School (and many others) attending on behalf of the schools. Campus and corporate visits, networking forums, CV-book exchanges, and live entertainment will bring together individuals for an unforgettable and productive Summit.
