SIMC – ESSEC Business School MOU Signing Ceremony
19 Nov 2015
On 19 November 2015, SIMC entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with ESSEC Asia Pacific Business School, crystalising the cooperation between the two institutions in the promotion of mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution.
SIMC recognises the growing role of business schools in providing business communities with the relevant knowledge of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”), and its partnership with ESSEC Asia Pacific will serve to meet this need in the industry. SIMC and ESSEC Asia Pacific’s Institute for Research and Education on Negotiation (“IRENE”) have previously collaborated to host seminars on mediation, and will continue to collaborate on similar projects in the near future.
SIMC would like to extend its appreciation to ESSEC for its hosting of the MOU Signing, which was followed by a seminar on International Mediation, featuring SIMC Directors Professor Lawrence Boo and Ms Bonnie Hobbs, as well as ESSEC IRENE Director Prof. Aurélien Colson and Executive Director Mr Chao Ta Wei.
