Dear AAPBS members,
On behalf of School of
Management, Lanzhou University, I would like to extend our warmest welcome to
you for the 2021 AAPBS Virtual Academic Conference.
It is our great privilege
and honor to host the 2021 Academic Conference. Since becoming the AAPBS member
in 2005, right after the founding of the School in 2004, LUSM has started the
journey to be one of the prestigious comprehensive management schools in China.
By growing up in the well-known university with more than 110-year history,
LUSM is young but energetic, dedicated to highest standards of scholarship, and
committed to the pursuit of excellence in educating future leaders in service
to local and global communities.
After experiencing a
particularly turbulent academic year, we find ourselves in an era that new
collaborations are demanded for education-integrative approached that move
beyond the competitive isolation and national frameworks in which universities
have historically operated. Therefore, it is the time that we need to work with
each more than ever before, although in a remote way. Let’s strive to turn this
crisis into an opportunity to be more innovative and to strengthen international
cooperation; to utilize technology as a platform to enhance our international
collaborations and exchange information to build a global community with a
shared vision for our future world.
I am looking forward to
meeting you online in May.
Dean and Professor
School of Management, Lanzhou University
