Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) is China’s first independent, faculty governed and non-profit business school. Founded in 2002 with support from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, CKGSB’s mission is to cultivate business leaders with a global vision, a humanistic spirit, a strong sense of social responsibility and an innovative mind-set. CKGSB has a campus in Beijing, teaching sites in Shanghai and Shenzhen, and representative offices in Hong Kong, London and New York. The school offers innovative MBA, Finance MBA, Executive MBA, Business Scholars Program (DBA) and Executive Education programs.
In the Cantonese dialect of Hong Kong, “Cheung Kong” is the name for the Yangtze River, the mighty waterway that originates in the Tibetan plateau and courses across the entire span of China. A symbol of the vast reach of China’s territory, it has also been a prized source of fertility and material abundance for farmers and fisherman over thousands of years of history. In that sense, the river aptly represents China’s vast economic growth potential today.
Drawing increasing strength and speed from tributaries as it nears the ocean, the Yangtze River also exemplifies the power of unified action – an idea that finds its analog at CKGSB in an emphasis on teamwork and shared learning through group projects.
