What makes us different

Full-time world-class faculty

CKGSB is China’s first private, research-intensive and independent business school.

CKGSB’s more than 40 full-time professors are truly world-class as defined by research output, educational background and past teaching and research experience at leading business schools globally.

More than half of them previously held tenure or senior professorships at top business schools, such as University of Michigan, MIT, Darden School of Business, Wharton, and Yale.

Unrivalled China insights

CKGSB produces and leads in original research and insights on doing business in and with China.

The majority of the school’s faculty members are ethnically Chinese with academic training and teaching at top global business schools and research experience on China economy and business.

CKGSB’s influential student and alumni network- comprised of Who’s Who in China business- represent the best, brightest and most influential leaders in China, with more than half at the Chairman or CEO level. This elite network provides professors with on-the-ground access to China’s thriving private sector and established state-owned enterprises.

Pioneer in social innovation

Going beyond the boundaries of business schools, CKGSB inspires business leaders not only to learn how to compete and collaborate better, but also to focus on why they do business and how they apply their wealth for the greater global good.

  • In 2005, we pioneered the incorporation of the humanities into core business curricula to give students a more holistic view of business.
  • Since 2009, we have been requiring all degree students to conduct philanthropic service to graduate.
  • In 2018, social innovation became a required module for all of our degree programs.

Message from the Dean

“It gives me immense pride that since its founding in 2002, CKGSB has become the global leader for scholarly insight into China’s economic transformations.

CKGSB is the preeminent choice for management education among influential business leaders and a new generation of disruptors in China. It is also the preferred choice for academics returning to China from leading global business schools. As a globally oriented business school, CKGSB has been positioning itself for East Asia (China, Korea and Japan) and ASEAN countries.”
