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.


    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.


    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 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.

The faculty was excellent, the lectures were thought provoking, enlightening - they presented a great global mindset to the lecture and made it very relevant."

I was hugely impressed by the extent to which China has progressed from a planned economy to a market economy and the influence Chinese companies are having on global competition

It is a daunting challenge for a business school to bring so many truly A-list business leaders together, but CKGSB has managed to hit another home run.

CKGSB Alumnus
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.
