Five years ago, in an effort to help China develop corporate managers, Mr. Xiang founded the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, with funding from the Li Ka-shing Foundation.
Mr. Xiang , who obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Alberta, was then teaching at Beijing University’s business school, where he started the school’s executive M.B.A. program.
Like any business school, Cheung Kong has an M.B.A. program.
But its real calling card is its executive M.B.A. program, a four-day-a-month, 19-month program aimed primarily at Chinese entrepreneurs. Its faculty comes from places like Wharton and Harvard Business School.
At $68,500, it is by far the most expensive such program in China. Among its best-known alumni are Jack Ma, who founded Alibaba.com, and Jason Jiang of Focus Media.
