It is a daunting challenge for a business school to bring so many truly A-list business leaders together, but CKGSB has managed to hit another home run.

I was immediately captivated by the school’s overwhelming ambition to become a global business school whilst incorporating eastern principles into an academic field traditionally dominated by western theory.

2011, I quit my job at a state owned enterprise to co-founded an NGO that engages to improve youth’s involvement in international cooperation, connecting them with big platforms including APEC, G20, ASEAN, etc. Eight years, we work to shape over 400,000 youth students and women start-ups into leaders with global perspective, who are well-prepared for challenges and opportunities of globalization.

What we do is beautiful, but how to make the beautiful things sustainable, this seems to be the long-lasting challenge that every non-profit organization faces. And I come for solution to GKGSB. CKGBS attracts me with its world-class faulty, cutting-edge research on business issues and the specific China topics on development and its stand in the world. What’s more, its pioneering initiative of involving philanthropy into education courses has made me believe this could be the place to stop, and to restart.

CKGSB’s approach is really new to me. We did not just learn content or business concepts by definition, instead 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.
