Founded 11 years ago, Cheung Kong is a rarity in China: a private, independent educational institution, and the only business school with faculty governance. Its reputation has soared, and its alumni include some of China's most prominent business leaders, like Jack Ma, an e-commerce pioneer and founder and executive chairman of the Alibaba Group, and Fu Chengyu, chairman of the oil giant Sinopec.

After opening offices in Hong Kong and London, Cheung Kong has turned toward the United States. While it has no plans to establish a full-fledged branch campus in America, Mr. Marchi, who is based in New York, aims to build on the school's strength in educating mid- and upper-level executives. It wants to offer executive-M.B.A. programs, perhaps joining with top-ranking American universities to offer dual or joint degrees.

Cheung Kong will also put on specialized programs and events with a China focus. For instance, together with the Yale School of Management, it recently organized the China India Insights Conference, an annual forum on business in both countries and other emerging markets. Cheung Kong will also provide custom training to American or multinational companies on specific aspects of working in China.
