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.

Through its condensed program and bespoke sized class, CKGSB offered me a challenging and really valuable learning experience. The quality of the professors as well as their accessibility during and after the classes helped me to gain great business knowledge and increase my understanding of China. Furthermore, the 12 months of intensive immersion in China is without a doubt the best way to not only understand the unique attributes of this great country and economy, but also build an unmatched local network.

One of CKGSB’s great strengths is that, being independent, it is able to project an objective view of what is happening in China. This makes for well-rounded Executive Education and a well-rounded experience.
