Oriental Scientific Instrument Corp
One of China's Largest Import/Export
Headquartered in Beijing with 31 branch corporations
including Shanghai, Guangzhou, Dalian, Qingdao
and Zhejiang, and solely-owned or joint ventures
in the United States, Thailand, and Hong Kong.
OSIC'S revenues in 2009 were
4.5 billion RMB or $660 million USD.
In December 2009 the Board of Directors of OSIC
(Oriental Scientific Instrument Import/Export Group Corp) appointed
SBU alumnus WANG Ge as President.
Wang Ge was a member of AIMP - Advanced Information Management
Program, a special graduate program in the College of Engineering
and Applied Sciences (CEAS) funded by Charles Wang and Computer
Associates in the mid-90's. One hundred of China's best and
brightest up and coming IT professionals were selected after
rigorous testing to take part in AIMP. Wang Ge was in the second
group to come, known among its members and CEAS as China II.
Those up and coming kept going up - becoming CEO's, CIO's and Board
members, some directly in China's SOE's, or State Owned Enterprises,
some indirectly as the entrepreneurs who have made China the world's
2nd largest trading economy.
AIMP alumni formed the backbone of
SB's China Alumni Chapter. After reunions with members of the
University community in China, they learned the value of alumni
networking and now have reunions with and without visitors to China
