Testimonials
I found that the well taught lessons learned during this program have been very beneficial in establishing our company brand in America. In fact, the plan to enhance awareness of our brand in America that was created in one of our workshops during this program in 2016 is the plan that we then implemented with great success in 2017. The professors are superb. I have continued to trade ideas on branding strategy with the classmates I met during this program and those relationships have become an important asset in my business. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to improve the branding strategy of his or her company.

The program offers a unique cross-cultural experience and prepares students to become future global business leaders. Faculty from two world-class schools – Cornell and CKGSB – come together and offer unparalleled expertise and education. There is no other program that has such high-caliber faculty, participants and networking opportunities. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Testimonials
I just made 20 new global friends. As we all grow and start different companies and head off in different industries, we will be able to rely on each other and have the great memories we are making right now. The most helpful aspect of the program were the connections I made, but the knowledge is amazing also. I thought I knew how I would one day do business with China but that has completely changed.
