CKGSB's executive education

China’s economy is the world’s largest in terms of purchasing power, so if you are to succeed in your global business, you must ensure a winning strategy and business in China. CKGSB Executive Education programs offer you the best practices and networks that you need to succeed in China and gain a competitive advantage in your international business.

  • FACULTY

    To understand global business opportunities through a China lens, it’s necessary to study from experts on the ground. Most of CKGSB’s faculty members are natives of China, who are able to understand and analyze China’s rapidly changing landscape without cultural barriers. At the same time, many of them held tenured positions in top global business schools, such as Harvard, Wharton and Yale, prior to joining CKGSB.

  • CHINA INSIGHTS

    CKGSB’s cutting-edge research provides you the latest trends and analysis on the Chinese economy. Our faculty’s ground-breaking research and regular surveys on different sectors and the macro-economy in China have been billed as the first of their kind in terms of scale, depth and reliability of data. While our research and case centers have produced more than 400 China-specific cases and reports that will offer you best practices on competition and collaboration in China, multinationals’ China strategy, innovative Chinese business models and other trends.

  • EXECUTIVE EXPERTS

    CKGSB’s programs are tailored to your executive needs. Since our inception, we have focused on meeting the educational needs of C-suite business leaders, since we believe that you need to continue learning to meet the challenges posed by today’s technological, social and geopolitical changes. Today, CKGSB is the preferred choice of more than 10,000 business executives, such as the CEOs and Founders of Alibaba, Fosun, Huawei, Midea, AVIC, CITIC and Sinopec. CKGSB also regularly delivers custom programs to the management teams of multinationals like Agilent Technologies, Clifford Chance, Cummins and Lego Education.

  • ALUMNI NETWORK

    CKGSB’s alumni group is recognized as one of the most exclusive in China. Connecting with our alumni network means you have a link to China’s experienced entrepreneurs and well-established companies. In fact, among our more than 10,000 alumni, 50% are at the Chairman or CEO level and, collectively, they run one fifth of China’s most valuable brands.

Testimonials
The CKGSB Global Branding In The Digital Era program is built around an incredible joint delivery format developed between CKGSB and the Yale School of Management. From day 1 the mission of the program is clearly outlined. Its goal is to empower brand leaders to best understand how the digital era and the internet of things can be used to effectively build brands and foster ongoing consumer engagement. The professors and industry experts who deploy the course will impart a lot of new knowledge. But this knowledge is well balanced by the benefits of doing assignments, receiving individual and team feedback and interacting with other participants in the program. Simply put, this is a top notch program that lays the groundwork for understanding how digital can help firms realize the benefits of technology and maximize the lifetime value of every client.
