Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) aims to cultivate business leaders with a global vision, a humanistic spirit, a strong sense of social responsibility and an innovative mindset. Established in Beijing in November 2002 with generous support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, CKGSB is an independent, nonprofit business school.
Since its founding, CKGSB has developed into a prominent business school with more than 40 full-time professors, many of whom previously held tenured faculty positions at leading business schools such as Wharton and Yale. Their research has provided the basis for more than 400 case studies of both China specific and global issues. CKGSB also stands apart for its unmatched alumni network. More than half of CKGSB’s 10,000+ alumni are at the CEO or Chairman level and, together, their companies accounted for one sixth of China’s GDP in 2015.
CKGSB strives to understand business in a more well-rounded capacity, beyond the traditional boundaries of business schools. In 2014, CKGSB was the first Chinese business school to develop a philanthropy program aimed at equipping the school’s alumni with expertise in setting up and managing foundations and engaging in philanthropy.
