Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) developed a joint program, the Dong-A Economic Leaders’ Academy (DELA), to foster international exchange among economists and deepen understandings of the Chinese financial market with Dong-A Ilbo, one of Korea’s top three most influential media.
June 4th marked the completion of the third DELA Global Networking Program, which was held at CKGSB’s Beijing campus. The program comprised of senior executives from leading Korean enterprises of various industries, who were offered certificates from CKGSB.
The DELA Program comprised of two-day lectures on the current state and future of the Chinese economy covering prospects on China’s real estate and stock markets, the situation of internet finance and e-commerce industry trends. Program participants also engaged in in-depth discussions with CKGSB’s world-class faculty, Chinese entrepreneurs and government officials.
One of the program’s key faculty members—Teng Bingsheng, Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Strategy at CKGSB—offered his thoughts on Korean companies, such as the ones represented in the DELA Program. “The combination of Korea’s high-technology and traditional image will improve opportunities for various manufacturing sectors, including but not limited to cosmetics, food or entertainment.”
CKGSB is known as a prestigious global business school from China with an unparalleled alumni network, which includes alumni like Alibaba’s Jack Ma and TCL’s Li Dongsheng.
