Understanding China’s Next Move (Open Enrollment)
Understanding China’s Next Move
(Open Enrollment)


The program is very informative and educational, it is very helpful for us to think and plan ahead. CKGSB’s data collection and research methodology are well-recognized. Also the pool of participants gives a very good representation of the business community here. I would recommend this course to people who are new to China, people who don’t have a clear picture of what’s going on in China, people who are focused on operations of business. Those people from executive level will really benefit from this course.

I’m very impressed with CKGSB’s professors. They are very knowledgeable and practical. They can answer every question in-depth. It shows that they really know what’s going on and they have a lot of contact with the industry participators or government officials so that they can get inside information and share with us. The classmates are very sophisticated. They know what’s going on. They just wanted to enhance the knowledge, to have more inspiration from different angles. I find the networking very good and dynamic.
