BEIJING, Dec. 18, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dean Xiang Bing of Cheung Kong Graduate
School of Business (CKGSB) has discussed the school's strategy for global
expansion impacting markets in Europe, the U.S. and Asia following the
school's 10th anniversary in Beijing. Leaders at the school were joined by
China's business elite and key influencers from around the world in November.

A key aspect of the school's global strategy is partnerships with elite
business schools in Europe, the US, Asia and high-growth emerging markets to
provide executive-level educational programs. These will be driven by overseas
branches already open in Hong Kong, London and New York and planned for next
year in Tokyo and Singapore. Insights into the China market and the global
implications of China's transformations made through robust primary research
will inform executive curricula and provide unique perspectives.

CKGSB's China Business Conditions Index (CBCI) is one example of the school's
powerful primary research capabilities. It maps business confidence through
direct interviews and surveys of over 200 Chinese business leaders in major
public and private sectors.

Renowned for robust analytics and insights into business dynamics by a
world-class faculty, CKGSB has become equally recognized for its highly
influential alumni network. Combined, the network's members, including 2,500
CEOs and Chairmen, are responsible for $1 trillion USD in annual revenue and
represent one fifth of China's most valuable brands.

CKGSB's Dean, Dr. Xiang Bing said "Currently more than half of our Executive
MBA enrollees are CEOs or Chairmen and our alumni network includes many of
China's most successful business leaders. We are leveraging our position as
the preferred choice of China's top business leaders to build a new global
platform that will impact overseas markets through China-informed education
and training for global C-suite executives. The goal is to equip national and
international heads with what they need for their distinctive business
operations to succeed in and in relation to China."

The school has assembled a European Advisory Board composed of leadership from
key sectors to guide the school's strategy and extend its global reach. The
Advisory Board includes Sir Tom Hunter, Founder, West Coast Capital; Sir
Victor Blank, Trade Ambassador, UK Trade and Investment; Malcolm Sweeting,
Senior Partner, Clifford Chance; Dr. Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover; and
Dr. Karl-UlrichKohler, CEO, Tata Steel Europe, among others. Similar advisory
bodies will be assembled for other priority markets.

Commenting on the impact of CKGSB's unique China insights for Western markets,
Malcolm Sweeting stated that, "[CKGSB] gives us a view on globalization
through a China lens...it is valuable for our senior management to listen to
the views of experts at the CKGSB [which] gives us perspective to make very
important decisions around our business."
