On February 22, 2021, the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) hosted Johns Hopkins Carey Business School’s sixteen freshmen, who are stranded in China due to the pandemic, at CKGSB’s Shanghai campus. This is part of an innovative cooperation carried out between the two schools, which are also planning to jointly offer degree programs in the future.
Johns Hopkins students at CKGSB’s Shanghai campus
Since early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has been havocking the world and disrupting people’s travel plans, making it close to impossible for international students to return to their campuses, as has happened with a group of Chinese students who have been attending online classes since their enrollment at Johns Hopkins. Under a new type of collaboration between the two schools, Johns Hopkins students will be able to bond with their fellow classmates in the next few weeks at CKGSB’s Beijing and Shanghai campuses, attending online lectures from Johns Hopkins’ professors and offline classes taught by CKGSB’s seasoned professors in China, such as Dean’s Distinguished Chair Professor of Finance Ouyang Hui and Assistant Professor of Marketing Eddie Ning. CKGSB professors offer the most cutting-edge industry practices and research findings on pertinent topics like “Internet Finance and Risk Management” and “Artificial Intelligence and Business Applications”. Credits for these lectures at CKGSB are recognized by the Carey Business School at Johns Hopkins.
