ESADE Alumni now has over 60 international chapters, thanks to its strategy of maximising its global coverage. At present, it has 64 international chapters, giving it a worldwide presence. The good news was given by Joaquín Uriach, the President of ESADE Alumni, at the 3rd International Annual Meeting, which this year was held in Milan (Italy). The Meeting was attended by close on 250 alumni.
The number of ESADE alumni with an international profile is growing by leaps and bounds and has been especially marked over the last 5 years, as the association has focused on expanding its network of contacts and chapters. At present, ESADE Alumni has 18,000 international members worldwide.
Among the last few chapters opened by ESADE Alumni, one should note Boston, Vancouver, South Korea, Qatar, Venezuela, and Denmark. New chapters are opening at a steady pace and it is expected that the network will grow to 67 international chapters by the year end.
The London, New York, Paris and Milan international chapters are among the most active. Milan was chosen as the venue for the 3rd International Annual Meeting, at which 3 leading Italian entrepreneurs shared their experience in the innovation management field.
The CEOs of Vodafone Italy and of Chiesi at the 3rd International Annual Meeting
Vodafone Italy’s CEO Aldo Bisio gave a noteworthy personal perspective on the future of digital companies. Speaking to the gathering of ESADE Alumni, he forecast growing demand for ''business engineers'', which he defined as ''experts who run a company, know its ‘machinery’ inside out, and who are capable of innovating when one of its components is not working''. Ugo di Francesco, the CEO of Chiesi, a pharmaceutical company that is a leader in Italy in the number of patents it holds, stressed the importance of training: ''Learning is a never-ending process'', he said. Andrea Bassanino, a partner of EY in Italy, shared his consultancy expertise in innovation implementation processes.
