Back in 2005, CKGSB pioneered the incorporation of humanities into core business curricula to give students a more holistic view of business. CKGSB also set up the EMBA philanthropy scholarships, now awarded across all our degree programs, to outstanding civil society and NGO leaders. Since 2009, all degree students at CKGSB are required to complete volunteering hours in order to graduate, resulting in a total of 150,000+ hours served.
