“Passion and love for your undertaking are essential when looking for your business partners. Relying on CKGSB’s alumni relations, I have managed to find some partners this way. Both of my partners are good friends of my CKGSB MBA classmates, and also have rich professional experience, with more than 10 years in large internet firms. They have all made serious sacrifices, and even decided to give up their highly competitive compensation packages at leading corporations before joining the team. In my view, it is the enterprising spirit at CKGSB that drives all of us into being this big family of entrepreneurs.”

Exchange to Cornell
Alibaba Group /Manager
"My exchange study at Cornell is an exciting part of my MBA journey. At Cornell, I was able to reach latest frontiers of business management as well as the broad entrepreneur community. Beyond in-class studies, I was working with a high-tech startup, developing business plan to commercialize
Cornell's cutting-edge biomaterial technologies. The exchange opportunity inspired me to pursue my own business ideas and strengthened my hands-on skills through real business cases."
IDG Capital, Partner
“The MBA program helped me immensely. Before the program, my understanding of management was relatively simple and one- sided. Study modules in the program were very comprehensive, including strategies, human resource management, finance, marketing and so on. The overall theoretical system encouraged me to think out of the box and to consider all the possibilities.”

Director and Head of Beijing Office
“I am a foreigner. To develop my career here in China, I need to be more sophisticated, more knowledgeable, and create more value than what I could do at that time. I need to learn to gain more capabilities and capacity. Many of my expat friends decided to leave, but I choose to stay in China and attend CKGSB, because this school satisfied all of my needs.”
