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.
Sir Tom Hunter
Founder, West Coast Capital
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.
Joan Elangovan
Executive Director of Asia Pacific Centre of Vancouver Economic Commission
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.

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.
