The Learning Giant: Biz Ed in China

Written on April 11, 2016 by Santiago Iñiguez in IE Business School, IE University


By Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, Dean of IE Business School and President of IE University.

Ying and yang, the two elemental forces, seemingly opposed, but complementary, in balance and harmony, which are to be found in everything, even the world of business, is one of the most distinctive ideas of Chinese philosophy. The application of this duality has provided China with a powerful stabilizing influence, while at the same time allowing for rapid change throughout society, including business schools. The seeming dichotomy between  the supposed opponents Ying and Tang is reflected in many different facets of Chinese thought, like the respect for tradition combined with a marked focus on the future.

Some years ago I attended the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the Renmin University Business School in Beijing. The colourful ceremony was held at the campus auditorium, bolstered by an impressive multimedia display and a presentational style worthy of the Oscars. As the spectacle unfolded, two particular aspects of the event struck me.

First, the way the ceremony reflected the profound Chinese respect for tradition, a tribute to the university’s older teaching staff, now retired, who had mentored and trained successive generations of educators. During its early years, the school was heavily influenced by the economics and engineering institutions of what was then the Soviet Union, the political and cultural ally in those days, something that the organizers of the event had no qualms in recognizing. One of the legacies of the quinquennial plans of that age is the long term planning embedded in many of their management practices.

This anecdote also shows an essential aspect to understanding China’s development towards a market economy, and in the future towards democracy as we understand it: China’s social and institutional development has come about gradually, over the long term, and is built on traditions and reference points dating back thousands of years. Social and political transformation in China will probably take place slowly and gradually, only noticeable from the angle of an historian.

Furthermore, the country’s social and cultural transition is based on continuity; it incorporates the past, regardless of whether they are seen at this point as good or bad periods. This sense of respect for tradition makes a vital contribution to institutional continuity and in the reverence shown toward the elderly, in this case, the university’s veteran teachers. Read more…
