Cheung Kong Graduate School Of Business:
Founded in Beijing in November 2002 by Li Ka-shing, Asia's most successful entrepreneur, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business is China's first private,non-profit,and independent business school. Headquartered in Beijing with campuses in Shanghai and Guangzhou,Cheung Kong offers Master of Business Administration (MBA), EMBA, and executive education programs. Cheung Kong's mission is to generate world-class insights on management theory and practice and to develop leaders for a new era of global business in China and beyond.
Cheung Kong maintains state-of-the art campuses in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. The Cheung Kong MBA program is based in Beijing, while the Executive MBA course is offered in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. These three cities, distinct in history, culture, and climate, will play leading roles in shaping the future of China for decades to come. In keeping with our goal to be China's leading business institution, Cheung Kong committed to building its presence in all three locations.
The Cheung Kong Beijing campus is located in Oriental Plaza, Beijing's premier office complex, which houses the Grand Hyatt and is located at the heart of Wangfujing, China's most famous shopping area. The Beijing campus is just a short walk from Tiananmen Square.
The capital of China for most of the past 600 hundred years, Beijing is the political, cultural, and educational center of the nation. Beijing has long absorbed immigrants from every province of China, and now increasingly attracts newcomers from throughout Asia and the wider world. Ancient sights such as the Forbidden City, Great Wall, and narrow hutong lanes now vie for attention with avant-garde international architecture. But despite the accelerating changes, there is no question that Beijing continues to represent the very heart of China.
The Cheung Kong Guangzhou campus is located in the heart of the Guangzhou business district.
For decades a center for manufacturing and export via Hong Kong, Guangzhou has emerged in its own right as the capital of the vibrant Pearl River Delta economic zone. Famous for dim sum and seafood cuisine and late-night dining culture, Guangzhou is also home to the largest population of overseas Chinese in China.
The Cheung Kong Shanghai campus is located in the western suburbs of Shanghai, near the Hongqiao Airport. Set in a leafy neighborhood surrounded by country villas, the Shanghai campus forms an escape from the noise and congestion of downtown Shanghai, which is only 30 minutes away by car.
Shanghai is the seat of mainland China's largest stock exchange and busiest port, as well as the headquarters of a growing number of corporations. That's in keeping with a historic Shanghai tradition: HSBC and AIG were both founded here. For more than a century Shanghai has thrived as the meeting point between East and West. The city's architecture, cuisine, parks, and cultural life are a tribute to the dynamism and energy of its residents, new and old.
