Woo-Yea Hwang

Former South Korean Minister of Education

 

In the 15 years since its founding, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) has grown to be a global business school with unmatched prominence and influence. Through its world-class faculty and unrivalled alumni network of renowned business leaders from a variety of fields, CKGSB has provided practical business insights not only for China and but also for the global community. In particular, CKGSB’s humanistic spirit, which emphasizes a strong sense of social responsibility and philanthropy, has greatly contributed to a sustainable business environment on a global scale. Notably, CKGSB pioneered the integration of the humanities into its curricula and became the first Chinese business school to develop a philanthropy program. Through this message, I would like to express my gratitude for CKGSB’s efforts and contribution towards the international society. I believe that CKGSB will continue to grow as a business education platform, sharing excellent expertise on global issues.

 

Young-su Shin

CEO of Dongwon Home Food

 

It is a very honorable moment to congratulate the 15th anniversary of CKGSB, a prominent global business school. Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business has built not only its unmatched human networks through the world-class faculty and enormous global leaders, but also collaborated relations with global academic institutions in the field of business education. Indeed, CKGSB opened ‘CKGSB EMBA on China Business: A Program for Korean Leaders’, an integrated business course with aSSIST (Seoul School of Integrated Science & Technologies) to contribute to share knowledge, information and human resources between Korea and China. The course has become a place of opportunity to cultivate business leaders in both professionally and personally ways based on chances to learn in a big and future-worthy stage like China. With the beginning of the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, all industries and corporations are shaken by numerous changes and they are facing an unpredictable business environment. I believe that CKGSB's business insights focusing on the latest management theories and practical cases can be a lighthouse for all of us who explore the fierce ocean. I hope that academic and practical business exchanges between Korea and China will expand with CKGSB, and once again, I would like to congratulate CKGSB’s 15th anniversary.

 

Sang-Heon Kim

Management Advisor of Naver & Former CEO of Naver

 

I am very pleased to congratulate CKGSB’s 15th anniversary. Over the past 15 years, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business has solidified its position as a global prominent business school which has cultivated business leaders who lead the Chinese economy with a global vision, a humanistic spirit and an innovative mind-set, based on its high quality curriculum and full-time professors, who have earned their PhDs or held tenured faculty positions at leading business schools. As China is unleashing its unlimited potential as a global economic leader, the role of CKGSB providing insights into the key issues in the Chinese and global economy will become even more important in the future. I was able to realize the power of the school when I took the course of ‘CKGSB EMBA on China Business: A Program for Korean Leaders’ for the past twenty-two months. I believe that CKGSB continues to provide valuable business insights for global leaders based on the school’s in-depth knowledge and experiences on China.

 

In November 2017, 20 renowned Korean leaders of diverse sectors, including Woo-Yea Hwang, Kook-Hyun Moon; former CEO of Korea-US joint venture Yuhan-Kimberly, Sang-Heon Kim, Young-su Shin, Han-Kyun Kim; CEO of Costory, Joon-Hong Kim; CEO of Meere Company, YongJae Min; CEO of YJM Entertainment, Mun-Soo Kim; CEO of SMATOOS, and Chul-Jun Kim; Founder and Director of the Daejeon Wellness Hospital, received certificates of graduation for completing CKGSB’s Korean EMBA program.

 

CKGSB’s Korean EMBA, jointly developed by the school and Seoul School of Integrated Sciences & Technologies (aSSIST), was established to share CKGSB’s in-depth knowledge and network base through intensive education programs to help Korean business leaders be successful in China. Through the lectures and modules, world-leading academic authorities in CKGSB and aSSIST shared insights on the latest issues of relevance to business sectors in various fields. Students in the CKGSB’s Korean EMBA, who are leaders across various fields, also enjoyed excellent opportunities to look around China’s leading enterprises and to communicate with Chinese industry officials.
