CKGSB's executive education

China’s economy is the world’s largest in terms of purchasing power, so if you are to succeed in your global business, you must ensure a winning strategy and business in China. CKGSB Executive Education programs offer you the best practices and networks that you need to succeed in China and gain a competitive advantage in your international business.


    To understand global business opportunities through a China lens, it’s necessary to study from experts on the ground. Most of CKGSB’s faculty members are natives of China, who are able to understand and analyze China’s rapidly changing landscape without cultural barriers. At the same time, many of them held tenured positions in top global business schools, such as Harvard, Wharton and Yale, prior to joining CKGSB.


    CKGSB’s cutting-edge research provides you the latest trends and analysis on the Chinese economy. Our faculty’s ground-breaking research and regular surveys on different sectors and the macro-economy in China have been billed as the first of their kind in terms of scale, depth and reliability of data. While our research and case centers have produced more than 400 China-specific cases and reports that will offer you best practices on competition and collaboration in China, multinationals’ China strategy, innovative Chinese business models and other trends.


    CKGSB’s programs are tailored to your executive needs. Since our inception, we have focused on meeting the educational needs of C-suite business leaders, since we believe that you need to continue learning to meet the challenges posed by today’s technological, social and geopolitical changes. Today, CKGSB is the preferred choice of more than 10,000 business executives, such as the CEOs and Founders of Alibaba, Fosun, Huawei, Midea, AVIC, CITIC and Sinopec. CKGSB also regularly delivers custom programs to the management teams of multinationals like Agilent Technologies, Clifford Chance, Cummins and Lego Education.


    CKGSB’s alumni group is recognized as one of the most exclusive in China. Connecting with our alumni network means you have a link to China’s experienced entrepreneurs and well-established companies. In fact, among our more than 10,000 alumni, 50% are at the Chairman or CEO level and, collectively, they run one fifth of China’s most valuable brands.

I was very impressed with CKGSB’s professors and with how much they believed in the school, how much they believed in the country, what they can do and how willing they were to provide us as much information and access as they could during this week, so all the good intentions, willingness and actual results of the week have been amazingly organized from an educational point of view and a logistical point of view, so I felt like they have been living up to what they were trying to deliver us, so that was really great.

Who is Joining Nov 2019 Cohort
I have been trying to attend Executive Programs since the last 2 years but did not manage to allocate time. I always wanted to work in China, and with China. I started in Hong Kong in 2002 before Shanghai in 2003. Then nothing between 2006 and 2019, until I recently invested in an e-commerce logistics startup that has successfully partnered with Alibaba Group. This year, we had the chance to provide advisory services to Chinese customers in the aviation industry too. Negocia Group, the investment arm of Starline Global Industries is more and more working with with Chinese clients, whether it is in our Aviation, Real Estate, Tech, Retail & Distribution sectors. As fate is bringing me back towards my dreams, it is the perfect program for me to strongly reconnect with China.”

I would like to gain an open, authentic first-hand insight into the cultural and operational aspects of doing business well with China and its broad, diverse community. I see this opportunity to support CKGSB as a mutual way to make solid personal and business connections. My experience consists of working on events in China on a project only basis, and of servicing private Chinese clients across Europe. I would like to significantly expand on this experience. I am keen to meet potential ‘good fit’ partners/investors who will help lay strong foundations and successfully develop Alite Global in China. I am happy to share my personal journey and business experiences to help CEOs develop, succeed and thrive."
