Our 14-month CKGSB MBA curriculum offers a firm grounding in the fundamentals of global business strategy, theory and practice, while also addressing the cultural aspects of doing business in China.
CKGSB’s MBA curriculum is designed to immerse students in the best of eastern and western business knowledge through a mix of coursework, in the-field-learning, and real-world experience.
Our MBA program is based in the heart of business in China, with immersive week-long learning experiences focusing on finance in Shanghai and innovation in Shenzhen. Our program also offers overseas modules and exchange opportunities in our New York and London facilities in partnership with Columbia, Princeton and Stanford, among others world-class schools.
Our faculty, most of whom are from China, have taught at leading universities worldwide, giving them a unique bi-cultural perspective that will help you understand the challenges and opporutnities in today’s fast growing Chinese economy. Our mentorship program will also connect you with high-profile business leaders who are changing the face of business in China.
With diversified consulting projects, our students undertake consulting projects in an immersive hands-on experience. You will be working with multinationals, private companies, state-owned enterprises or non-profits in China. These include working in companies such as Tencent, IBM, and GE, to develop solutions related to strategic planning, marketing and feasibility studies, financial analysis, and operational evaluations.
Based in the capital city of Beijing, CKGSB’s 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 enterprise 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 an influential group of 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’s become a major hub for economists, business leaders and thinkers from the U.S., Europe, and the rest of Asia.
With over 3000 years of history, Beijing offers a myriad of cultural and historic sites to explore. Just a stone throw 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.

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.
