Living and working in China. Prof. Emily David’s story.
CEIBS Assistant Professor of Management Emily David joined CEIBS in mid-2016 after a stint in the United Arab Emirates where she complemented her role as an academic with mentoring participants in a female empowerment programme. Years before, she had also lived in Bolivia. Her experiences as an expatriate, like many other aspects of her life, have shaped the direction of her academic research. Now she’s in Shanghai, where, in addition to giving her all to her students she is enjoying the culinary delights. “I just want to give a personal shout out to whoever invented xiao long bao. I'm a really huge fan,” she says with a mischievous laugh. “I love that stuff, I eat it every week. That’s one of my favourite parts of living here!”
