This is the last call of DUSA May Roundtable on May 30.

Times are changing; digital applications become disruptive for everybody's life. Nevertheless, the basic human behavioural patterns seem always to be unchanged (Passion, Anger, Happiness, Frustration ...). We will discuss and analyse together if, and if yest what within our leadership style has be be adapted to this new constellation. Especially also what can be done to arrange/position/cope with all those modern "digital influences" within our working environment that continuously strives for "raising the bar"? Are this digital influencers beneficial for or are they threatening towards the motivation and performance level of a working team?

The May Roundtable will be combined with the May session of SEA Spring-Summer Seminars of IBSS, XJTLU.

Refreshments instead of dinner buffet will be provided. The event is free entry for DUSA Members and RMB 300 for Non-DUSA Member based on "first come, first served" principle and max. 2 registrations from one member company.

International Business School Suzhou at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University

Founded in 2013 as a school of Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, International Business School Suzhou offers a unique blend of Western and Chinese academic practices. XJTLU is an international university jointly founded in 2005 by leading institutions from both China and the UK. As the only independent Sino-British venture of its kind, XJTLU is a pioneer in the field of higher education in China. XJTLU's China insight and global outlook are integral to all undergraduates, masters and PhD studies on offer in the sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, architecture and planning, language, culture and business. 

As a part of XJTLU, IBSS's faculty and students have been able to benefit from opportunities of cross-disciplinary partnerships in research, learning and teaching.

Located in Suzhou of Jiangsu province, near Shanghai, one of the fastest-growing commercial centres in China's booming Eastern corridor, IBSS is becoming an international leader in business education and research.

IBSS's learning and teaching environment are underpinned by creative interaction and collaboration with international and domestic businesses, coupled with solid academic grounding. Thus, it is an environment that prepares Chinese students for international business and international students for doing business in or with China.

IBSS operates on strong principles of internationalism, innovation, inspiration and integrity, which together ensure that the School has a positive impact on society through its teaching, research and business engagement.

As a testament to our rapid growth we have secured some impressive achievements, in 2016 IBSS earned accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an accolade that has been obtained by less than five per cent of business schools in the world. IBSS also broke records in becoming the youngest business school in the world to gain eligibility for EQUIS in the shortest time (within four months) in 2017. IBSS is the youngest business school to achieve the double crown of AACSB and EQUIS.
