The Schulich Executive Education Centre’s Asian Business Management Program (SEEC-ABMP) was awarded gold for Education Excellence at the Canada China Business Excellence Awards 2018. The announcement was made at a luncheon in Toronto on Oct. 3.
The award is presented to a Canada China Business Council member organization in the education sector that demonstrates outstanding achievement in delivering China-related success including, research partnerships, recruitment, student/faculty exchanges, alumni relations, institution linkages, executive training, and provision of Canadian curricula.
“We are honoured to receive this special recognition and we thank everyone for the help they have given us over the past years to bridge political, economic and cultural gaps in the Canada-China relationship,” said Bernard M. Frolic, SEEC-ABMP executive director.
SEEC-ABMP is a Centre of Excellence at the Schulich Executive Education Centre, Schulich School of Business, York University that provides professional development and management training to Chinese senior public officials, executives and educators both in Canada and China. Since 2000, it has delivered more than 250 short- and long-term training programs to more than 5,000 officials at the national and provincial levels, and to many educators and executives in the private sectors.
The CCBC awards are presented to organizations that have played an innovative and leading role in expanding and nurturing bilateral business relationships. Indeed, SEEC-ABMP has been a leader for contributions made to Canada’s understanding of the critical importance of China in its institutional and international strategies; for contributions made to the advancement of Chinese studies at York University; and for sustainable international partnerships that have made both its Chinese and Canadian participants global leaders.
