New Program

The global business landscape is always evolving and increasingly complex. As a past participant of the Global CEO Program for China, you have explored the ways social, cultural, political, economic, and technological factors impact business worldwide. You know that keeping your company at the forefront requires constantly rethinking and reinventing your organization's core competencies.

To help you successfully navigate the challenges ahead, we have designed the China CEO Renewal Program, an invitation-only experience exclusively for past participants of GCPC. This program takes you on a four-year learning journey that prepares you to face an increasingly competitive business environment. Upon completion of the program, you will earn Harvard Business School alumni status, becoming part of a global network of more than 80,000 alumni.

Structured to maximize learning and minimize time away from work, the program's format enables you to refresh and enhance your knowledge for years to come. Working alongside an exceptional group of peers from Greater China and beyond, you will focus on some of today's most important issues—from interpreting global market trends to developing a visionary leadership style. The experience prepares you to lead your organization to even greater success, armed with the latest research, new insights, and best practices.
