Already since 2013, Alliance of Chinese and European Business Schools (ACE), twenty universities and colleges are the founding members of the alliance, which is under the patronage of EFMD. ACE will focus on academic excellence and the synergy between research and education in order to better prepare the next generation of executives. High-level representatives of the 20 schools finalised the ACE consortium agreement in parallel Deans’ forum discussions. Planned activities include the establishment of a joint programme under the ACE label, exchanges of professors and students, projects and research conferences and the development of international skills modules. The initiative is closely linked to EFMD activities, whilst the commitment to quality improvement is assured. Already in the first year, ACE will provide a symposium on research and will lay the foundations for the first batch of students for a joint programme.
