CBBC’S BUSINESS SCHOOL PARTNERS
Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business
Established in Beijing in November 2002, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) is China’s first privately-funded and research-driven business school. The school aims to cultivate transformative business leaders with a global vision, sense of social responsibility, innovative mindset, and ability to lead with empathy and compassion.
Today, CKGSB stands apart for its full-time, world-class faculty, research excellence, China insights and unparalleled alumni network. More than half of its 40 strong faculty members previously held tenure or senior professorships at top business schools, such as MIT, Wharton, and Yale. CKGSB is also the preferred choice for management education among China’s established business leaders and a new generation of disruptors. More than half of its 18,000 alumni are at the CEO or Chairman level and, collectively, they lead one fifth of China’s 100 most valuable brands.
CKGSB goes beyond the traditional boundaries of business schools to focus on the complete wealth cycle, inspiring business leaders not only to learn how to better compete and collaborate, but also to focus on why they do business and what to do with their wealth for the greater global good. The School is now fostering social innovation through the collaboration of businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, non-profit organizations and civil society, to address humanity’s most challenging and often systemic issues—like income and wealth inequality, social immobility and sustainability.
Headquartered in Beijing, CKGSB is also located in Shanghai, Shenzhen, New York, Hong Kong and London.
