Expanding the development of entrepreneurship ecosystems, Professor Alex Maritz of The La Trobe Business School, recently provided a keynote address about enhancing entrepreneurship education in international and regional ecosystems at The Shanghai Institute of Technology (SIT). International and Chinese delegates were provided a smorgasboard of exemplar global entrepreneurship education initiatives, providing insightful and dynamic examples of developing entrepreneurship ecosystems. LTU is currently finalising an articulation agreement with SIT, enabling greater collaboration in teaching, research and engagement between LBS and SIT. Expect to see meaningful student and staff exchanges between programs and research centres between LBS and SIT.
Additional engagement between LBS and Chinese Universities resulted in collaboration with Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) in the Shandong Province. HIT is part of the Chinese C9 League (similar to the Australian GO8), and in the Top 10 Global Technology Innovation Institutes. In affiliation with The International Conference of Organizational Innovation (ICOI), of which LTU is a partner University, discussions were held regarding the 2017 Conference at the HIT campus in Wei Hai. Celebrating this partnership, Professor Alex Maritz, and Professor Xiofei Xu, President of HIT Wei Hai, met with leaders of ICOI and The School of Economics & Management, HIT.
“These impactful relationships and collaboration initiatives enhance LBS’s leadership and engagement with leading Universities in China, and our students and staff can look forward to meaningful education and research exchanges between these institutions”, said Professor Alex Maritz.
