Cheung Kong, China’s leading privately-funded business school, and Cambridge University’s Judge Business School have teamed up to run a three-and-a-half day executive programme in the UK in November, aimed at senior Chinese and European entrepreneurs.
The Global Business Strategy: China programme will address issues such as China’s globalisation, as well as how best to do business in China and Europe. Fifteen European entrepreneurs have already signed up to the programme, according to Cheung Kong: the total participation to expected to be 75.
Scottish entrepreneur Sir Tom Hunter is one of the confirmed participants. Additionally, he is launching a scholarship scheme with Cheung Kong to enable five entrepreneurs to take part in the Judge programme and then go on to study on the full-time MBA on Cheung Kong’s main campus in Beijing.
There is no better way to understand what is required to be a success in China than interacting with leading faculty and Chinese entrepreneurs, says Sir Tom. “This programme is a unique opportunity for business leaders from across the globe to get together to learn and share experiences.”
Cheung Kong set up its European campus in London in September 2011, and plans to run its Executive MBA - an MBA for working managers - in both London and New York.
