China Immersion Progam for Health Industry

23-27 October 2017 -  China


The Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) is organising an immersion program for the health industry from October 23 to 27, 2017. The program is co-developed with the EU-China Business Association (EUCBA), the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC), the China-Britain Business Council, and the Câmara de Comércio e Indústria Luso-Chinesa.


As your pathway to business with China, 2017 CKGSB’s China Immersion Program for Health Industry will immerse participants into the true market realities. CKGSB helps explore the key elements of China’s cultural and business environment. This 5-day blended learning program covers a concise and informative range of classroom learning, exposure to China’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centre for Drug Evaluation and wide ranging visits to both Western and Eastern companies operating in China in: Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Nutrition, Medical Insurance, Medical devices and applications, as well as Healthcare and its related products and services.


Program Director

“Many large European health related companies have benefited tremendously from the booming Chinese economy and its increasing desire for advanced health care products and services. However, SMEs in the European industry have generally missed out on the same opportunities. This is due to the lack of China knowledge, network and partners in China and investment opportunities. China Immersion Program for Health Industry aims to solve this problem by providing European SMEs with the life-changing opportunities to benefit from the lucrative and fast growing Chinese health market.


Through its world recognised faculty, alumni and programs, CKGSB provides an unprecedented level of support to aid Western health care companies in creating a brand and appropriate China stage where organisations are able to drive competitive advantage and distinguish their products. This includes advancements in product quality and packaging design adaptations to the Chinese market, as well as increased access to China’s best distribution channels.”


Bo Ji, Chief Representative of Europe & Assistant Dean, CKGSB
