Siebel Scholars Travel to China to Meet Business, Government, and Cultural Leaders
From May 7-17, 2011, Thomas M. Siebel, Chairman of the Siebel Scholars Foundation, will lead a delegation of nearly 20 Siebel Scholars to Beijing, Hangzhou, and Shanghai. Frieder Seible, Dean of the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego, also accompanies Mr. Siebel and the Siebel Scholars delegation.
The Siebel Scholars alumni in this delegation to China come from a wide variety of technical, scientific, and managerial backgrounds. This accomplished group includes executives at leading healthcare, investment, consulting, and energy companies such as Morgan Stanley, Baxter, McKinsey & Company, Kraft Foods, and The Hina Group; and postdoctoral researchers in Bioengineering and Computer Science at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University, and Tsinghua University.
Hosted by President Gu of Tsinghua University, the purpose of the Siebel Scholars
delegation trip to China is to provide these leaders with an opportunity to learn about
Chinese business, technology, and culture firsthand, through visits to businesses and factories and meetings with executives and senior Chinese central and regional governmental leadership. See the full trip itinerary here.
In doing so, the Siebel Scholars Foundation hopes that the delegation, and the greater
Siebel Scholars community, will gain deeper insight into the issues and opportunities
facing China—and the rest of the world.
