CKGSB has signed an agreement with the Seoul School of Integrated Sciences & Technologies (aSSIST) to establish a brand new China Executive MBA program. The two schools will work with their combined networks of over 8,000 leading Korean and Chinese entrepreneurs to establish rigorous programs on all aspects of business operations in the context of the Chinese economy.
“China’s rapidly opening economy has turned the attention of business people worldwide to China’s corporate culture and business environment,” said CKGSB Dean Xiang Bing. “Through this program, CKGSB will provide in-depth insight into Chinese culture, studies and the economic and business environment for Korean business leaders that will equip them to lead the global economy in the future.”
“With the global economy changing so rapidly, the importance of Chinese and Korean economic conditions is constantly growing,” noted aSSIST President Il-Sup Kim. “This program, jointly developed by our school and CKGSB, is expected to provide a balanced view of the Chinese and Korean markets for entrepreneurs in both countries, ultimately enhancing business performance.”
