10 Years of China Business and Economics

In 2012, the Chair of China Business and Economics (CBE) was filled by Prof. Dr. Doris Fischer. Ten years later, we would like to celebrate the 10th anniversary of CBE together with you! Therefore, we have prepared three day long festivities, including panel discussions and guest lectures, social events, and leisure activities.

We look forward to welcoming you (back) in Würzburg!
