The Guanghua-Kellogg EMBA Program Welcomes the New Class of 2024!

September 19, 2022


This September, we welcomed our new class of 2024 to Peking University. With 14 years of work experience and rich management experience in a variety of different industries, they form the pioneers of this age of globalization.

Over the next 22 months and 12 modules, they will acquire cutting-edge management techniques from the East and West, share their international experiences, enrich their networks, and embark on a challenging journey of personal exploration and professional growth. Having already completed their first intensive module, we can't help but be impressed by the enthusiasm and warmth of the new additions to our community.
