For more than a decade, The MIT-China Management Education Project has been developing initiatives that prepare the management force of China for business in the global arena. The success and growth of the project would not have been possible without the help of Dr. Philip C.K. Kwok.

Deeply committed to his homeland and a strong advocate of education, Dr. Kwok approached Deputy Dean Alan White in 1994 to urge MIT Sloan to develop the MIT-China Management Education Project. “At that time I was more interested in developing short executive management programs for senior managers in State Owned Enterprises (SOEs),” Dr. Kwok explains. “I felt that MIT Sloan could bring about fundamental change in Chinese business schools by allowing their faculty and students to experience how management education is conducted in the West.”

As CEO of Wing On Group, Kwok established Wing On as one of the leading business conglomerates in Hong Kong, and has served on numerous government bodies in China. He was Vice Chairman of the Consultative Committee for the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, and the Chinese government appointed him as one of the Hong Kong affairs advisors.
