WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY
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.

Founder, Fave Asia
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.

Student Voices
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.

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.

Student Voices
Right now, I am at an important cross road in my life. I have been laying a foundation in China for the past few years, and am now actively pursuing applications of this knowledge in the business field. For me, CKGSB is the perfect choice. Because it is a China business program, an MBA with CKGSB means complementing my China knowledge and creating a strong business foundation. Furthermore, it will help me to grow roots in the China business field. Studying both from and with brilliant people in business, I expect that in my 14 months with CKGSB, I will have tremendous growth -- both personally and professionally.
