I was already sure that I will start my life back in China through attending a business school. CKGSB was the best choice amongst my options. The school has top professors, students, classmates, and alumni and the integration of these elements creates an outstanding community.

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.

With its world-class professors and fast-growing China market context, CKGSB offers those who aspire to be a business leader international cutting-edge concepts and fresh research on the Chinese market. A close-knit network among alumni and genuine friendships between classmates makes CKGSB a family that I can benefit from. I further believe that the intensive, accelerated one-year program is the right choice to sharpen my business skills in a cost effective and time efficient manner.

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.

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.
