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.


    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. They represent the best in global business education, with expertise from both the East and the West.


    CKGSB’s cutting-edge research ensures you will have 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.


    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.


    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 most successful entrepreneurs and 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.

We were friends and entrepreneurs who have admired each other for a long time. But today, everything has simplified into one single mission - and that is studying. I believe that, in order to realize a new business civilization with a global perspective, all of us will work hard. Let’s expect a change and a transcendence in the future.

Changed my life; business-wise and personally. Now I need to learn Chinese! 100% satisfaction, truly a great program.
Aki Soudunsaari
Naturvention, CEO, Finland
The honesty of CKGSB professors is truly admirable. They’re not trying to sugar-coat things, they are not trying to paint a picture of imaginary China, they are trying to give us the real deal China. The good, bad and the ugly, the truth. So they are giving us their utmost honest feedback and guidance on how to properly do business here, and that’s, again, priceless. So if you want to do business here, with all the positives that we said about the faculty of getting the truth, you’ve got to immerse yourself directly into this program.

Having obtained three degrees at Tsinghua University, I thought it was time to go out and find something different. CKGSB leads its competitors no matter whether it’s their MBA, EMBA or Business Scholar programs and has been highly recommended by friends around me. I think it is the best choice one can make.

One of the things that makes this program so unique and that excites me the most is that it is geared to such a diverse audience; people from different kinds of family businesses being taught by expert faculty who will tailor the learning to the needs of the participants.
