Based in the capital city of Beijing, the CKGSB Global MBA program is well situated to analyze the practical realities of business in China, where commerce often intersects with politics.
MBA students study the role of state-owned enterprises as well as private companies and multinationals in the China market. Students also consider the impact of government policies on corporate growth strategies, both at home and abroad.
The program’s location offers unparalleled opportunities for networking with influential Chinese nationals and expatriates – some of whom serve as visiting lecturers at the CKGSB campus. Beijing is home to China’s most powerful leaders and serves as headquarters for many top multinationals. It has become a major hub for foremost business executives, economists and thought leaders from Europe, the U.S. and the rest of Asia.
Offering over 3000 years of history, Beijing offers a myriad of cultural and historic sites to explore. Located a short walk away from the Forbidden City, the CKGSB campus is situated in the epicenter of global wealth and influence. Today, the city’s creative modern art and music scenes attract attention from around the world. Studying here also offers a wonderful opportunity to learn the world’s most spoken language – Mandarin.
CKGSB's Beijing campus is located in the Oriental Plaza, a prestigious commercial center in the heart of the capital. Chang'an Street links the CKGSB Beijing campus to Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City in the west and to Beijing's Central Business District just East. Stretching across three floors of the Oriental Plaza's towers, the campus' classrooms and meeting areas offer stunning views of the Beijing skyline.
CKGSB cooperates with Oriental Plaza Apartments to provide full-time MBAs with student accommodations. Oriental Plaza boasts the prestigious address of No.1 East Chang'an Avenue. Strategically located along Wangfujing Street, the development occupies a prime site in the heart of Beijing's city center. The building is 50 meters away from subway lines 1 and 5, and is surrounded by supermarkets, restaurants and multiple bus lines. CKGSB has reserved two-bedroom suites from Oriental Plaza Apartments, each suite to be shared between two students with a total floor space of 138-152 square meters.
The CKGSB Global MBA program strives to inspire its students to excel in whatever fields they enter. Successful business leaders display strong social skills and know how to network, cooperate and lead teams. Clubs at CKGSB give students a chance to develop these crucial skills and prepare them for the world outside the classroom.
Clubs are founded and operated by students, and specific funds are set aside each semester to support the events and activities of officially recognized clubs and organizations. Students are also welcome to form new clubs: the only requirements are a great idea and some fellow students who support it
