Succeeding in China, the Key to Becoming a Global Business Leader- CKGSB MBA Madrid Event

January 08, 2018

China is on the move, generating wealth at an unprecedented pace and reshaping the world economic order. Chinese billionaires, such as Jack Ma (Alibaba), Robin Li (Baidu), and Pony Ma (Tencent), have created new business empires and established themselves as the captains of industry for the emerging global economy. Following the trail they blazed, thousands of business people were inspired to find their own paths to success, forming a new class of wealthy “China-prenuers”. China’s phenomenal rise has meant that no CEO or C-Suite executive can afford to ignore the growing competiveness of Chinese companies or the purchasing might of Chinese consumers. As China moves toward a more significant role on the world business stage, understanding the opportunity and challenges in China’s future has never been more critical for rising executives and business leaders.
