We Cultivate
Business Leaders

Since our founding in November 2002, our mission has been to cultivate transformative business leaders with a global vision, social responsibility, innovative mindset and ability to lead with empathy and compassion. Today, CKGSB is the preferred choice of China’s business leaders, evidenced by the school’s 17,000 alumni, half of whom are at the CEO and Chairman level and, collectively, run one-fifth of China’s most valuable brands.

We Convene World-class Professors

Our faculty members - most of whom are Chinese by heritage - have a native understanding of the Chinese language and culture. Yet they have also tenured or held senior professorships at some of the world’s leading universities. This, combined with generous research funding and access to one of China’s most influential alumni networks, allows CKGSB to offer you unrivaled China business knowledge.

We Monitor China Business Up Close

We offer 500 original reports and case studies—produced by our faculty, 18 research centers and the Case Center—that explore issues like China’s digital economy, innovative business models and succession planning in family businesses. Our professors also conduct monthly, quarterly and annual indices and surveys that often serve as global indicators to China’s economic conditions.
