2021. 08 .18: New Provost Dr. David Birdsell's Four areas of CBPM 


Aug. 02, 2021


The Provost discussed four areas he will invest time and energy over the next 1-2 years: 


- Student Success: Retention and Graduation rates - wants to achieve above 50%, and see a double-digit improvement over the next few years. 


- Faculty Success: Emphasized it is not only scholarship (how many papers published); but does scholarly work have any "Impact" on the local economy, theory, and practice? Important that we talk about the impact for research. 


- Service: It is important and a major part of our responsibilities and student success (Student advisement). 


-. Responsiveness: External engagement - as a public urban research university, we have a responsibility to respond to the needs of our community and our region. 


Deans and faculty should be involved in national, professional, and academic organizations. We need to think about how we can become more active and build relationships with the public and private sectors in the near future.

Charity Session : A New Interpreation of Charity and Public Welfare:

Teach People to Fish - Do good to the People of Wenzhou

Mr. Ye Zhengmeng, Security-General of Zhejiang Xinhu Charity Foundation





Summary of the Charity Lecture Series by Doris - 徐佳吟 Doris.


1.    Wrong charity methods will have adverse results. People who receive too much money will become dissatisfied and become evil, which called "Marginal effect of gratitude" or "the anger of loser." So choose appropriate donees is very important. There is a very important principle of choosing donees:

a. Focus more on giving to those who are temporarily short of money (e.g. people who suffer from disasters), not those who are desperately short of money.

b. An important saying: "One of the major obstacles to true and permanent goodness is undue giving."

c.  Undue giving will lead to two results:

                                          i.         Foster dependency

                                         ii.         could result in moral kidnapping

2.    How to teach poor people methods(授人以渔)in a systematic way?

a. These things include:

      i.         Inspire people with desire. We should let people realize the importance of good life and possibility of having good life. Show bright future to poor people. Communication with poor people and make reasonable business with them: for example, we give part of money to poor people, and poor people also need to invest some money or efforts.

     ii.         Teach people how to make money. Examples (emphasize the importance of teaching methods): 1. hire agricultural experts to teach poor farmers how to plant Cerasus humilis. 2. provide money for undergraduates to start up a business.

1) The greatest "method" is offering education.

   iii.         Provide some initial money to poor people to start their business.

   iv.         Relieve poor people's worries

1) Worries include:

a)  afraid that products cannot be sold successfully.

b)  afraid that the price of products will fluctuate.


3. Developing leadership is more useful than teaching all people methods.

a. Example: countryside CEO plan

      i.         Leaders are the most important. Develop leadership.

     ii.         Give leaders more knowledge, skills, and resources.

   iii.         Some detailed way to develop leaders:

                               1)  Courses learning

                               2)  Base on practice

                               3)  Future plan planning

                               4)  Paid on board learning

                               5)  Synchronous tracking guidance

                               6)  Induction competition

How To Write a Professional Business Email? (By Dr. Jerry Choi at WKU CBPM) 


Email is an important communication tool in business. 
For example, a business executive gets over 100 emails daily. 


But many do not write an email in a proper way.
A wrong form of Email makes a reader frustrated, and the sender cannot get what intended to.  

Harvard Business Review suggests the best practice of Business Email writing. 
Learning from the Military practice, Sehgal suggested three guidelines.
Here, I added two more guides for better Email writing in the real world. 

These five suggestions are…. 

First, Subjects with Keywords in the Title sentence
Second, Bottom Line Up Front - BLUF
Third, Be Economical - Bullet type is recommended
Fourth, Keep the structure,  containing 5W and 1H, Whom, Why, What Where, When, How
Fifth, clearly indicate who is the sender. 

With keeping these five suggestions, you can write this style of professional Email. 

In the title, you can clearly describe what is the purpose of your Email with a “Keyword”. 

In the first line, You can clearly indicate ”Whom” you are sending your Email to. 

Then, you can give the ‘Bottom Line’ of your Email. 

Providing background or details will help a reader to take action. 

Be polite, and please tell the receiver who is sending this Email and how to get you. 


This is it. 


Let’ keep these ‘Business Email Writing’ rules to make a professional communication.

2020 WKU CBPM Building Operational Improvement

CBPM has a nice building to provide world-class education. But it needs to get improved continually in operation. Social Media Lab, 2nd Floor Outdoor space, and the North side of the building can provide operational excellency if we can improve it slightly. 


Social Media Lab is to create world-class business educational contents. But it has risks of fire and health for poor indoor materials.


2nd-floor outdoor space can be extended as a part of “Business Research and Innovation Center (BRIC)” where it can provide “Business events such as Business speech; business gatherings, invite talks; Quartet, and small performance. This space can provide the chance to build a business network with the Wenzhou business community (This space can host 500 persons).


North side of the building (adjacent to the large indoor Auditorium) can be used as the “Outdoor Theater” as it was designed for if we can add solar panel and stage. This space can host a medium-size school event such as freshman welcoming or graduation ceremony (This space can host 1,000 persons). 


Suspended the Social Media Lab improvement for a while (Jan. 2021) for Budget problem. 


Dec. 08, 2020:

The Social Media Lab Improvement plan is suspended because a resolution was not achieved between Social Media Director and Logistics Department. The space will remain the same as it is.  But "Risk of Fire" will be continually addressed. 



Adding to the improvement, a Cafe facility can be installed in the 2nd floor. (2020. Jan. 14)






5. College of Business - Management, Global Business, and Marketing Banner Installed on the 2nd Floor spaces (Oct. 24, 2020)


6. Jan. 2021: Equipped "First Aids Package" and "WheelChair" for Medical Emergency Situation at the 2nd floor of CBPM building.

Dr. Jerry Choi coined the idea and donated the Medical Aid box and wheelchair. 

Dr. Margaret Chen suggested first aid medicines and materials. 

Dr. Candy Chiu suggested Wheelchair. 




Feb. 23, 2021: Suggestion of CBPM Building's Operational Adjustment with the New Campus Buildings.


New Campus Building: Architect (started operation in Feb. 2021). 

You may know that WKU CBPM has around 60% student body size, and we have served many external operations in cooperating with the school's demand. 

And it's time to adjust the school space operational adjustment with the new campus building. 


Originally, CBPM had "Library" space and "Project Rooms" space on the first floor of our building. 


But those spaces are used for 'Exhibition Room' and some strange outside activities, not for CBPM purposes as below. 



"Could we talk and negotiate to make operational adjustments of CBPM building with new campus buildings?". 


One thing is clear for us, CBPM needs more space to manage 'larger numbers of CBPM students' day by day. 


And we wish we can make excellent 'operations' of each campus building continually. 

Please kindly consider this suggestion, and please feel free to contact us to talk about 'Operational Adjustment'. 



Oct. 08, 2021: Outdoor Space Budget Approval (Dr. Tony Zheng)



At the outdoor space of CBPM 2nd floor, we will have...


1. Makerspace activities,

2. Hackathon (by IAIC), 

3. MGM Day event, 

4. Social Entrepreneurship activities

5. Wenzhou Business Community Engagement events (keynote speakers), 

6. Classic Concert and/or Students talent shows (e.g. Wednesday Classics, Quartet concert)







Oct. 08, 2021: Outdoor Space Budget Approval (Dr. Tony Zheng)


2021. 02. 23: Suggestion of CBPM Building Operational Adjustment with New Campus Buildings (to Logistics Department). 

2021. 01. 25: Moved the Virtual conference room information to Social Media Lab website.

(updated Nov. 30, 2020 after consulting with Prof. Gupta at Math, WKU). 





2020.09.16, WKU CBPM Dean Dr. Cao Jiang introducted the Business Analytics Program starts in 2020 in public.

MGS 3701: Data Mining in Business

MGS 4701: Integrative Applications of Business Analytics

MGS 3501: Database Management In Business


2020. 09. 24:  UPDATE of BA Program Initiative in Wenzhou: 

Thanks to your transformative leadership, Wenzhou-Kean would like to officially initiate the Business Analytics (BA) Program in 2021 Fall. I am confident that the BA program will be a flagship major in the CBPM both in Union and Wenzhou soon. 

Last week (Sept 16), Dr. Cao Jiang introduced the Business Analytics Program. Many Business students were totally excited to have a chance to learn Business Analytics courses in the Kean system. Then, we are proposing Four classes (120 seats) of MGS3001 (Python Programming) in Spring 2021. 

Dr. Chad Chung - a newly hired BA teacher will teach MGS3001 (Python Programming) in Spring 2021.  And WKU MGM is now recruiting two more BA faculty members for starting the program next Academic year. 

Therefore, we would like to study and elaborate those Business Analytics courses based on your Syllabi. 

On the other hand, we need to talk about the "Exchange Program for BA major Students". 

As we have discussed, WKU will have many BA students but lack courses and teachers.  KUSA has courses and teachers but needs more students. Then, we need to collaborate by using an  Exchange program. Below is the rough idea of the Exchange program. And we can keep talking about the "Global Collaborative Education for Business Analytics" .

We wish to build a nice and wonderful "Business Analytics Program" in Kean System basing on the great "Global Collaboration".

International Social Entrepreneurship Research Colloquium (ISER of Kean USA - Wenzhou Kean University). 

The purpose of International Social Entrepreneurship Research Colloquium at the College of Business and Public Management, Kean (Union, USA & Wenzhou, China) is to create new knowledge of 'Social Entrepreneurship.' 

Social entrepreneurship is an approach by start-up companies and entrepreneurs, in which they develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. A social entrepreneur creates and operates a social enterprise that is an organization that applies business strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well-being through social impact. Social impact is the net effect of an activity on the social fabric of the community and the well-being of individuals and families. 

The research colloquium addresses these research inquiries:  

  • What does drive social entrepreneurship? 

  • How to develop social entrepreneurs? 

  • What does strategic intervention or policy create a mass-scale social impact?

  • How can we transform 'cultural, social, and human' assets into social values? 

  • What managerial applications boost social innovation? 

  • What are the commonalities and differences between American and Chinese social enterprises and social entrepreneurs? 

The research colloquium disseminates research outcomes at academic journals, academic or professional conferences, classroom teachings, mass-media, and social network services to create social impacts.  



Coordinator at Kean USA: Dr. Bok Gyo Jeong (bjeong@kean.edu)

Coordinator at Wenzhou-Kean: Dr. Jeonghwan (Jerry) Choi (jechoi@kean.edu)

Global Practicum Project, 2019: Impact Investing and Social Enterprise: Co-creating the public value for people, community, and the world. 

In 2019, thirteen Kean University business major students from New Jersey, USA and Wenzhou, China were hired as business consultants by the OneHRT (http://www.oht168.com) – a workforce management company at Wenzhou, China. 

The mission of the business consulting project was to identify new business opportunity; to suggest strategic options of Wenzhou Institute of Charity and Public Welfare – a branch of OneHRT enterprise. 


June 06, 2019: Site Visit

A Global Practicum consulting team made a site visiting at OneHRT, Wenzhou, China. We were kindly welcomed by the OneHRT company. We visited two sites, and we could get basic understandings about the company throughout observation, Q&A, and intensive communication.


June 07 ~ 20, 2018: Consulting Process & Bloomberg Terminal @WKU
The consulting team learned about the consulting processes and basic tools. Four teams were formulated to investigate the impact investing and social enterprise leaders. 



Business consulting teams completed:

  • Identified managerial issues of the company

  • Defined a managerial problem

  • Conducted external analysis of impact investing and social enterprise  industry

  • Conducted internal analysis of the company

  • Formulated and suggested strategic options 

  • Provided action plans to implement strategy

Particularly consulting teams completed Benchmarking analysis of 24 Global and Domestic impact investing corporation and social enterprise foundations in the perspectives of: 

  • Leadership profiles

  • Mission/ Vision / Value

  • Brief Growth History

  • Services / Brand

  • Size & Operation

  • Brief financial outcomes

  • Profitability analysis

  • Key success factor

  • Recent growth strategy

  • SWOT analysis



Adding to the Benchmarking analysis, the Consulting team applied Semantic Approach and multiple Statistical Analysis techniques to address the research question of "What factors and How much they make influences on social entrepreneurial intention of business college graduates?".  



Based on these rigorous research and investigation, she proposed five strategies and 15 practical suggestions for the client. Three suggestions were immediately implemented at OneHRT (e.g. Bubble Drink Day for Social Good; Job training for Bottom-of-Pyramid people; and Plogging initiative). 


Final Presentation (June 27, 2019)

13 consultants successfully delivered the consulting outcome and clients were impressed on the high quality of the consulting results. The client would take actions to implement the proposed strategies.
