Alliance with Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business will connect top Chinese students with Johnson MBA students and faculty
Johnson at Cornell University has announced a partnership with the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), one of the leading business schools in China.
“This collaboration will further Johnson’s footprint in China, particularly among the elite business leaders in that region” said Ya-Ru Chen, Nicholas H. Noyes professor of Management and Global Business at the Johnson School.
Specific areas of collaboration will include MBA student exchange, a certificate program hosted by Johnson for an EMBA outbound group from CKGSB, a joint energy certificate program for senior executives from the Chinese energy sector in Ithaca, and the Parker Center of Investment Research and related Johnson parties serving as advisor for the setup of the China Investment Fund at CKGSB.
“Our partnership with Johnson will help students of both schools better prepared for the increasingly globalized business world,” said Li Zhou, assistant dean of CKGSB.
Johnson’s ongoing commitment to expand its global imprint is a primary goal of the school’s long term Strategic Plan. Currently, Johnson has celebrated successes with its certificate program with Nanjing and Peking Universities in China, a similar certificate program with KAUST in Saudi Arabia and its innovative Executive MBA degree program with Canada’s Queens University, which reaches professionals in over 20 cities in the U.S. and Canada and most recently, Colombia, South America.
