When I was at Harvard Business School, 90% of my classmates worked at large companies, so their goal was to get promoted or get a better salary. As compared to HBS, where I was doing mostly case studies, CKGSB is unique in that it’s mostly for entrepreneurs to learn practical and real skillsets that they can apply to their business immediately. It’s experiential.

Student Voices
I was immediately captivated by the school’s overwhelming ambition to become a global business school whilst incorporating eastern principles into an academic field traditionally dominated by western theory.
Rory Bate-Williams
MBA Class of 2013
We all know that China is an exciting proposition for any business in growth mode. Understanding China business is very crucial for me, not only because I am assisting ADGM’s team in the development of our China office strategy, but it is important for me in my current job as well as in future opportunities to understand the Chinese mindset and how to leverage it.

Student Voices
After studying and working in the UK for 10 years, I recently moved back to South East Asia to venture into business. Doing my MBA in China is the perfect avenue for me to gain insights into China and to survey the contemporary opportunities for doing business in China and with China. I choose CKGSB over offers from other Chinese business schools because I am convinced that CKGSB has all the resources I could ever ask for to turn my business ideas into reality and that CKGSB will pro-actively help me to succeed.

With the passion and vision to succeed in the business world, I believe it is the right time to step out of the comfort zone and to take up the MBA challenge that will push the best out of you. CKGSB’s mission to provide world-class education for China’s business is exactly what I am looking for in achieving a MBA and investing back into the China’s market, where talents, knowledge, resources, location, connectivity, and culture are at the best of the best. CKSGB is a place where one’s potentials can be exerted to its fullest.
