CKGSB’s MBA Program yesterday welcomed a fresh batch of students to its Oriental Plaza campus in the heart of the Chinese capital Beijing. Students joining the program from around the world will partake in a 14-month, intensive MBA program, leveraging CKGSB’s world-class teaching, profound China insight and one of the world’s most exclusive and prestigious alumni networks, which includes everyone from Alibaba Founder Jack Ma to CKGSB MBA alumna Cindy Mi, whose online education company VIPKID recently received funding from NBA legend Kobe Bryant.

During the orientation process, students were welcomed by Associate Dean of the MBA Program, Prof. Li Haitao, Prof. Brian Viard, who doubles as the Academic Director for MBA Program and MBA’s Associate Director Martin Zhu. Prof Li inspired students with his opening address, saying, “We want each and every one of you to dream a bigger dream than before you arrived”.
