One of China's top business schools opened an office in London on Tuesday.
The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) is Chinese mainland's first "homegrown" business school to establish an overseas branch. The school seeks to provide customized business courses for European executives who are or will be dealing with business issues related to China and the rest of Asia.
CKGSB's European branch will offer leading corporate clients insights into China's economy and businesses, like how multinational corporations, state-owned enterprises and private companies compete and collaborate in China, East Asia and even in the global market.
CKGSB will also function as a bridge between East and West, providing a platform for business leaders from both parts of the world to meet and compare notes, as well as network in an academic environment.
The newly built European branch office is in London's St. James's Square. Thousands of China's most successful business leaders have graduated from the Beijing-based business school.
