Established in Beijing in 2002 with support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, CKGSB is China’s first faculty-governed and independent business school. Fifteen years ago, setting up such a school in China was a novel idea. Management courses were under-developed and China, having just joined the WTO, was only just beginning to make a mark on the global stage. Fifteen years on, and with the help and dedication of our professors, partners and alumni, we have gained a global reputation. Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve this important milestone and we look forward to achieving more in the years to come!
