In 2015, Professor Zhang was recognized as "Best 40 Under 40" Business School Professors worldwide awarded by Poets & Quants. Professor Zhang is also founder and Head of the Erasmus-Huawei Collaboration Program which aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing between technology, innovation, business development and education in order to add value to the local social-economic community.
