Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), one of China’s leading business schools, hosted a special conference in Seoul on August 27 to celebrate the inauguration of its alumni association in South Korea. The event was attended by over 100 notable alumni at home and abroad, and CKGSB’s Founding Dean Xiang Bing and President of Incheon National University Cho Dong-Sung presented extensive insights in a forum titled ‘The New Global Order: The Role of Confucian Economic Bloc.’

Xiang Bing, Founding Dean of CKGSB, and Laura Tyson, Interim Dean of UC Berkeley’s Hass School of Business, had a dialogue on trade between the US and China during the CKGSB CEO Program’s US Module in UC Berkeley on August 6th.

On July 17th and 18th, CKGSB hosted its 5th Marketing Research Camp at the Langham Shenzhen. The research camp summoned over 30 marketing academics from top universities in the US, Canada, mainland China and Hong Kong. The two-day camp provided professors and scholars with high level paper presentation and unique company visit experience.

With the popularity of Bitcoin, policies on cryptocurrency have become a hot issue. eDaily, a widely-read South Korean daily focused on business and economics, published an article analyzing the reason why the Chinese government’s financial policy is focused on controlling cryptocurrency. The article references an article from CKGSB Knowledge, “Blocking Bitcoin: Why China’s Cryptocurrency Ban Could be Here to Stay”, and mentioned both Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business and the school’s publication CKGSB Knowledge as the sources of the article.

One of Korea’s most widely-read weekly business magazines, Economic Review, highlighted the power of sponsorships from Chinese corporations at this year’s World Cup in Russia. Despite the fact that China’s soccer team did not play on the fields, many Chinese corporations saw this world event as an opportunity to drive brand awareness thought sponsorships, paying a whopping USD 835 million to the organizing body. This is a symbol of China’s confidence in its own brand and economic strength as they actively expand overseas. The article cites CKGSB Knowledge as the source on materials related to growing confidence in “Made in China”.

CKGSB has officially launched China’s first Master of Entrepreneurship and Technology Innovation (METI) program, with more than 30 students taking the inaugural class at CKGSB’s Shenzhen campus. The program is being run in collaboration with UC Berkeley and the Songshan Lake International Robot Industry Base, China’s leading R&D center for industrial robotics.

The fourth China Start program for European entrepreneurs has been successfully completed with another cohort of professionals energized about the prospects for engaging with the China market. Taking place in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, this year’s program comprised of lectures from CKGSB’s world-class faculty, company visits to some of China’s top companies and live pitching sessions, attended by some of China’s wealthiest investors.

CKGSB Dean Xiang Bing delivered a speech at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on China and Britain where he talked about UK’s impact on China’s economic development and what China can offer in the future.
