We all know that China is an exciting proposition for any business in growth mode. Understanding China business is very crucial for me, not only because I am assisting ADGM’s team in the development of our China office strategy, but it is important for me in my current job as well as in future opportunities to understand the Chinese mindset and how to leverage it.
Mariam Al Mansoori
Strategy Director of Abu Dhabi Global Market
When I was at Harvard Business School, 90% of my classmates worked at large companies, so their goal was to get promoted or get a better salary. As compared to HBS, where I was doing mostly case studies, CKGSB is unique in that it’s mostly for entrepreneurs to learn practical and real skillsets that they can apply to their business immediately. It’s experiential.

The past few days have been an amazing learning experience for me, from the leading faculty to the insightful course content. The class mix and dynamics also stand out to me. The unique backgrounds and experiences of the participants bring a truly global perspective.

CKGSB’s approach is really new to me. We did not just learn content or business concepts by definition, in stead professors explained what was happening in China through multiple lenses, so that we could easily understand how and why certain factors affect the Chinese economy.
