Roundtable Workshop: ‘Towards a better understanding of Chinese OFDI’
Date: August 23,  2015
Where: Shanghai Jiaotong University/Kedge Business School
Collaboration: Jacobs University , Jioatong University Shanghai/Kedge Business School
Much research has been carried out on Chinese outward investment in broad terms, classifying Chinese outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) either as a threat or a blessing to the host country. There exist persistent misunderstandings about the motives behind Chinese OFDI in both international media and in academia.
This workshop will shed light on Chiense OFDI, factors, motives and consequences.

 Academic Year 2013
University Study Course (USC) with focus on Chinas Globalization
During the academic year 2013, we were happy to offer the Jacobs students a USC with focus on China in which this fascinating country was analyzed by taking a look at various aspects (e.g. economic, social, hsitorical). The collaboration of professors from Jacobs University, coming from various disciplines worked out very well in order to offer our students a broad picture on China.
