China's Leading Business School Advances Bold Strategy for Global Integration with International Business

BEIJING, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dean Xiang Bing of Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) has discussed the school's strategy for global expansion impacting markets in Europe, the U.S. and Asia following the school's 10th anniversary in Beijing. Leaders at the school were joined by China's business elite and key influencers from around the world in November. 

A key aspect of the school's global strategy is partnerships with elite business schools in Europe, the US, Asia and high-growth emerging markets to provide executive-level educational programs. These will be driven by overseas branches already open in Hong Kong, London and New York and planned for next year in Tokyo and Singapore. Insights into the China market and the global implications of China's transformations made through robust primary research will inform executive curricula and provide unique perspectives.

CKGSB's China Business Conditions Index (CBCI) is one example of the school's powerful primary research capabilities. It maps business confidence through direct interviews and surveys of over 200 Chinese business leaders in major public and private sectors.

Renowned for robust analytics and insights into business dynamics by a world-class faculty, CKGSB has become equally recognized for its highly influential alumni network. Combined, the network's members, including 2,500 CEOs and Chairmen, are responsible for $1 trillion USD in annual revenue and represent one fifth of China's most valuable brands.

CKGSB's Dean, Dr. Xiang Bing said "Currently more than half of our Executive MBA enrollees are CEOs or Chairmen and our alumni network includes many of China's most successful business leaders. We are leveraging our position as the preferred choice of China's top business leaders to build a new global platform that will impact overseas markets through China-informed education and training for global C-suite executives. The goal is to equip national and international heads with what they need for their distinctive business operations to succeed in and in relation to China."

The school has assembled a European Advisory Board composed of leadership from key sectors to guide the school's strategy and extend its global reach. The Advisory Board includes Sir Tom Hunter, Founder, West Coast Capital; Sir Victor Blank, Trade Ambassador, UK Trade and Investment; Malcolm Sweeting, Senior Partner, Clifford Chance; Dr. Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover; and Dr. Karl-Ulrich Kohler, CEO, Tata Steel Europe, among others. Similar advisory bodies will be assembled for other priority markets.

Commenting on the impact of CKGSB's unique China insights for Western markets, Malcolm Sweeting stated that, "[CKGSB] gives us a view on globalization through a China lens...it is valuable for our senior management to listen to the views of experts at the CKGSB [which] gives us perspective to make very important decisions around our business."
