Jack Ma To Serve As Visiting Professor At Tokyo College

Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma has been invited to serve as a visiting professor at Tokyo College, a new organisation run by the University of Tokyo.

His appointment was announced on the university’s website on Monday.

The appointment term for China’s most well-known entrepreneur expires at the end of October, but the contract is renewable annually, according to the university.

Ma’s responsibilities at the college will include advising on important research topics and giving lectures on management and business start-ups.

The announcement came after Ma returned to China in March, ending a more than a year-long absence that the industry saw as reflecting the country’s private businesses’ sober mood following a tough two-year regulatory crackdown.

The Tokyo College was established in 2019 to serve as a bridge between the University of Tokyo and overseas researchers and research institutions.
