Greater attention than ever is now being placed on promoting development across the rest of the continent. The China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and “Belt & RoadInitiative (OBOR) have put their emphasis on strengthening physical infrastructure, a focus which may potentially complement or be in tension with approaches that stress poverty alleviation, improved governance institutions, and the nurturing of entrepreneurship and commercial markets. This event features a discussion among leading experts from China and North America about the scope of Asia's development challenge, the weighing of alternative solutions, and the possibilities for bilateral and multilateral cooperation.

Find the REPLAY & THE ANALYSIS by Campus-Channel for this program here: http://www.campus-channel.com/international-students/en/essec-business-school-global-mba-focus-on-china-and-south-east-asia.html QUESTIONS : 01:12 The speech 05:26 Face to face 05:56 Good evening. How French is your programme? Would it prepare me to learn the French culture of business so that I can enter into the multinational companies based in Paris to a managerial position? 09:54 Is this an MBA with a specific specialization or a general one? 13:23 Hello! how come I don't see you in the global ranking of the MBA in Financial Times? Where are you? 15:46 I would like to address the question to the student Purnima who is currently a student of this program. How has your journey to Essec been? What have been your unique experiences as a student of this program? 20:08 Expert question 20:19 Expert question: We can maybe say that an MBA is one of the most expensive pieces of paper; not only the diploma itself but also the opportunity cost of the 12 months pausing the professional life! Tell us: is this a cost-effective investment for those who are already earning a satisfactory salary? 26:24 Hi! Actually, I am from Singapore. One term in Singapore is not that attractive for me. Do you offer any other options for cases like me? 29:23 Do I need economics or business background to follow the courses? What are the preferred bachelor's degree or current professional sector by the admission's office? 34:14 What is the kind of placement support you offer to your students? Placement is an Indian concept where companies visit the campus and recruit them right at the campus. Does that happen at Essec? 37:06 Could you tell us more about the Capstone project during the summer and is it compulsory? What if I am not interested in consulting firms? 41:31 Tricky question 41:38 Tricky question: There are two choices on the table: (A) a bag of recently roasted coffee beans, and (B) a wine bottle just out of a winery. They are both of a supreme quality. Which one resembles your global MBA? 45:35 Hello, I have worked in a big corporation in Seoul for the last 16 years. I really want something new and want to expand my career outside Korea. Do you think your MBA will be useful for me? 47:34 Hello Purnima! Is it difficult to find a job post MBA in Europe? As most of the European countries have strict visa policies for international students. 49:31 What is the ambience like during the courses? Is it interactive? How many students in class? 55:01 I find that the Essec global MBA course does not have a comprehensive list of courses in Marketing for example. If I am looking at a deep knowledge in a particular functional area, would an Essec MBA be suitable for me? 57:59 Hi! I am from Malaysia and I am confused if this programme is for students from developed countries trying to enter into the emerging markets like in my home country. 60:18 Conclusion

China’s stock market is making headlines in the early days of 2016. While economic issues will continue to be an important focus, we asked Kissinger Institute Director, Robert Daly to provide us with a preview of what else we might expect in the realm of U.S.China relations in the new year. That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW. Guest Robert Daly was named as the second director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson Center in August, 2013. He came to the Wilson Center from the Maryland China Initiative at the University of Maryland. Prior to that, he was American Director of the Johns Hopkins University-Nanjing University Center for Chinese and American Studies in Nanjing. Robert Daly began work in U.S.-China relations as a diplomat, serving as Cultural Exchanges Officer at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing in the late 80s and early 90s. After leaving the Foreign Service, he taught Chinese at Cornell University, worked on television (北京人在纽约) and theater projects in China as a host, actor, and writer, and helped produce Chinese-language versions of Sesame Street and other Children’s Television Workshop programs. During the same period, he directed the Syracuse University China Seminar and served as a commentator on Chinese affairs for CNN, the Voice of America, and Chinese television and radio stations. From 2000 to 2001 he was American Director of the U.S.-China Housing Initiative at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Do the movies “Zootopia” and “Doctor Strange” pose threats to China by providing propaganda vehicles for the infiltration of so-called Western values? What may sound silly to some, is actually a cause for concern among many Chinese leaders. And what about the self-censorship that could come with adjusting content to avoid being banned from the world’s second largest market for film and books? Does that weaken the soft power of America and its Western allies? Beyond the multiplex, the ongoing battle over the influence of popular culture and other expressions of soft power is an ongoing issue in China-U.S. relations. That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW. Guest Robert Daly was named as the second director of the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Woodrow Wilson Center in August, 2013. He came to the Wilson Center from the Maryland China Initiative at the University of Maryland.
