At this point in my life, I consider an MBA program to be necessary as it will arm me with necessary knowledge and practical know-how to build more bricks to develop my start-up business. I believe that CKGSB is the optimal integrated solution for a perfect 'soft landing' for young professionals like me, who have been away from China for over a decade. I look forward to joining CKGSB to learn the best practices from successful alumni entrepreneurs and inspirational business leaders from China market.

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.

With the passion and vision to succeed in the business world, I believe it is the right time to step out of the comfort zone and to take up the MBA challenge that will push the best out of you. CKGSB’s mission to provide world-class education for China’s business is exactly what I am looking for in achieving a MBA and investing back into the China’s market, where talents, knowledge, resources, location, connectivity, and culture are at the best of the best. CKSGB is a place where one’s potentials can be exerted to its fullest.

Choosing CKGSB was a no-brainer as it stands out as the perfect trampoline into business in China. There are lots of ideas I would like to explore while at CKGSB – especially with my peers and faculty where I hope to find a business partner in the process.

Dear all students, staff and members of the CKGSB community,

As the public health emergency caused by COVID-19 is still ongoing, I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. The safety of our staff and students are our top priority at this point, which is why all staff members will work remotely for the time being. In addition, we will offer online learning to our students, in order to continue our curriculum offering, and provide a series of webinars for the wider community on relevant topics.

Fundamental to the core of Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business’ (CKGSB) vision is to cultivate transformative business leaders with a strong sense of social responsibility. To this extent, I’m extremely proud to see the CKGSB community coming together in recent weeks to provide support through donations big and small. Meanwhile, our professors are examining the economic and social impact of the virus and will continue to release data and analysis in the coming weeks.

We will continue to support relief efforts and work together with government agencies, private corporations and international organizations in a meaningful way. Our thoughts and wishes are with all of the people affected by the COVID-19.

Sincerely,

XIANG Bing
Founding Dean
Professor of China Business and Globalization
