Founded in Beijing in November 2002 by Asia's most successful entrepreneur Mr. Li Ka-shing, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business is China's first private, non-profit, and independent business school.
The Cheung Kong GSB mission is to generate world-class insight on management theory and practice, and to develop world-class business leaders for China and beyond.
Headquartered in Beijing with campuses in Shanghai and Guangzhou, Cheung Kong GSB offers MBA, EMBA, and Executive Education Programs. The MBA and EMBA Programs are sanctioned by the Ministry of Education and the State Council of China.
A global leader in business education innovation, Cheung Kong GSB is a new generation business school for a new generation of business leaders.
Future-Oriented with Unrivalled Knowledge about China
How to compete and collaborate in the China market constitutes a key to the future global success for many corporations. Despite this fact, the body of knowledge on the dynamics of competition and collaboration in China remains rudimentary. Cheung Kong GSB provides global leadership in knowledge generation and insights on:
• The dynamics of competition and collaboration in China among state-owned enterprises, private(family-held) businesses, and Multinational Corporations (MNCs)
• The global ramifications of the rise of China and Chinese companies
• The globalization strategy of Chinese companies
• How MNCs best integrate their China project into their global play
Cheung Kong GSB insights enable both MNCs and indigenous Chinese companies to achieve seamless business integration of China with the world. The unique Cheung Kong GSB knowledge base makes us complementary with top business schools around the globe, and enables Cheung Kong GSB to recruit top business leaders from China's most elite and respected companies. Focused on original research, Cheung Kong GSB leapfrogs the typical "teaching factory'" or "copy-cat" model adopted by many business schools in the region.
World Class Faculty and Global Perspective
Cheung Kong GSB is the only business school in China able to attract top faculty with experience teaching at schools such as Wharton, Stanford, NYU, and INSEAD. In addition, the majority of Cheung Kong GSB faculty members are Chinese, enjoying a home-field advantage in researching and generating world class insight on China business. The Cheung Kong GSB faculty forms the soul of the School, ensures the School's global perspective, and sets Cheung Kong GSB apart from other schools in China.
Innovative Programs for Business Leaders
The business school of choice for prominent business leaders, Cheung Kong GSB designs path-breaking programs in executive education. The China CEO Program, conducted with INSEAD, Columbia, and Wharton, brings together a prestigious list of Chinese executives. Korean and Indian CEO Programs bring top Korean and Indian executives to China to round out the Cheung Kong CEO Series.
Bringing the Humanities into the Business School Curriculum
Cheung Kong GSB takes a holistic approach to business education, leading out in the integration of the Humanities directly into the business school curriculum. We teach history and religion in an effort to nurture future business leaders with "heart and soul" who are able to leverage knowledge and managerial talent at the global level. The Cheung Kong GSB curriculum includes a human dimension that helps future business leaders to live enriched lives.
A Research-Oriented Faculty
A world-class, research-oriented China-resident faculty sets Cheung Kong GSB apart from other schools in China. Cheung Kong GSB provides generous support for research by recognized scholars from the world's top business schools with proven track records in research and teaching. Cheung Kong GSB faculty members live and work in China, conducting on-the-ground research in China and beyond.
Cheung Kong GSB is a faculty-governed business school. Faculty-governance, an established "best practice" found at nearly all top business schools, is still not commonly accepted practice in China. Leading out in faculty governance, however, ensures an environment conducive to teaching and research, while enabling the School to recruit world-class scholars to China.
Free from "Profitability Pressure"
Generous support from the Li Ka-shing Foundation ensures that Cheung Kong GSB has the financial resources to pursue long-term and healthy development without financial pressures. Given its strong backing, Cheung Kong GSB enjoys first-tier facilities and invests heavily in research.
A Place for Friends
The human dimension is a unique aspect of Cheung Kong GSB culture. The race to get ahead in China and across the world can easily become a stampede where people lose sight of the human picture. Cheung Kong GSB curriculum incorporates the Humanities and discussion of world religions, values, and quality of life. All this makes Cheung Kong GSB a place for friends, and a place to find people you enjoy spending time with.
Greater China's Most Powerful Alumni Business Network
The unique Cheung Kong GSB culture and all-around excellence in MBA, EMBA, and Executive Education Programs has nurtured the formation of greater China's most powerful alumni business network. Program participants form a Who's Who for business in China, including established veterans such as Fu Chengyu, president of China National Offshore Oil Corporation, and new economy stars such as Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba, and Jason Jiang, chairman of Focus Media.
