GK Master Class | Global Sustainable Development and the Innovative Practices of China

November 9, 2021

As inequality is worsening and anti-globalization rising in recent years, the world is attaching increasing importance to sustainable development. The United Nations formulated 17 sustainable development goals in 2015 while China also made an ambitious program for sustainable development. China has already reached the goal of extreme poverty eradication ahead of the UN schedule. With continued efforts to promote sustainable development, China has also announced its own targets for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and strong determination to achieve “common prosperity” for all its people. Would Chinese innovative and successful practices be useful or enlightening for the rest of the world?

The Guanghua-Kellogg Executive MBA program is delighted to announce that Wu Hongbo, the Special Representative of the Chinese Government for European Affairs and former UN Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, will join us in a Master Class to share his rich experience and professional knowledge on the topic “Global Sustainable Development and the Innovative Practices of China”.

The Guanghua-Kellogg EMBA program seeks to broaden the horizons of its students and alumni by inviting industry and academic leaders to impart their insights on pressing economic and commercial topics.  This class marks a continuation of the program's efforts to provide students and alumni with lifelong learning opportunities to exchange knowledge and ideas.
