Underlining the massive interest in business schools in China the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business has announced the 20 semi-finalists of the school’s 2008 China Business Plan Competition. The prizes are well worth while, as in $50,000 for the best, and there is a category for students selected from Chinese universities.
Asher Epstein, at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, said, ‘Submissions this year demonstrate the continued evolution of the Chinese entrepreneurial community. This year’s entries reveal a more sophisticated trend toward answering distinct challenges in the China market with new solutions and ideas vs. applying business models that exist elsewhere to fit local needs. They suggest China is realizing ambitions of being a world innovator.’
The Smith School’s Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship holds the China Business Plan Competition, now in its fourth year, in support of the growth of world-class business ideas and business leaders in China.
