PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Collaborating with an Innovative China (CIC) is a one-day introductory course designed to provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of where China is and more importantly, where it is headed in relation to global innovation and opportunity. Anchored on solid research and on-the-ground knowledge, the course goes beyond sensational media headlines to explore the realities of China’s economic transformation and its implications to global business. It is designed for individuals from corporations who have or will soon have responsibility for coordinating operations with or in China. It is also ideal for those who are required to have a good working knowledge of China as part of their responsibilities.

“By 2030, China will likely overtake the United States to become the largest economy in the world. As China makes its presence felt around the world in all spheres of life, executives will need to think about doing business ‘with’ China, not just ‘in’ China.” –Xiang Bing, CKGSB
