2011, I quit my job at a state owned enterprise to co-founded an NGO that engages to improve youth’s involvement in international cooperation, connecting them with big platforms including APEC, G20, ASEAN, etc. Eight years, we work to shape over 400,000 youth students and women start-ups into leaders with global perspective, who are well-prepared for challenges and opportunities of globalization.

What we do is beautiful, but how to make the beautiful things sustainable, this seems to be the long-lasting challenge that every non-profit organization faces. And I come for solution to GKGSB. CKGBS attracts me with its world-class faulty, cutting-edge research on business issues and the specific China topics on development and its stand in the world. What’s more, its pioneering initiative of involving philanthropy into education courses has made me believe this could be the place to stop, and to restart.

One of CKGSB’s great strengths is that, being independent, it is able to project an objective view of what is happening in China. This makes for well-rounded Executive Education and a well-rounded experience.

At this point in my life, I consider an MBA program to be necessary as it will arm me with necessary knowledge and practical know-how to build more bricks to develop my start-up business. I believe that CKGSB is the optimal integrated solution for a perfect 'soft landing' for young professionals like me, who have been away from China for over a decade. I look forward to joining CKGSB to learn the best practices from successful alumni entrepreneurs and inspirational business leaders from China market.

Choosing CKGSB was a no-brainer as it stands out as the perfect trampoline into business in China. There are lots of ideas I would like to explore while at CKGSB – especially with my peers and faculty where I hope to find a business partner in the process.

CKGSB’s approach is really new to me. We did not just learn content or business concepts by definition, instead professors explained what was happening in China through multiple lenses, so that we could easily understand how and why certain factors affect the Chinese economy.
