iLead For The next Generation
  • iLEAD – the Intergenerational Leadership Entrepreneurial Accelerated Development Program – is a one-of-a-kind, extraordinary global leadership development and networking program for executives and entrepreneurs from American, Chinese, and other international family enterprises. As the US and China become increasingly interconnected, it’s more critical than ever to possess the tools, skills and global network of peer leaders to successfully tackle tomorrow’s global business challenges. iLEAD is the only program of its kind, and prepares both American and Chinese legacy family leaders as well as other first-generation entrepreneurs for future global success through networking and collaborative learning, with events in both the US and China.

  • A collaboration in the summer of 2015 between CKGSB, Cornell University, US China Partners Inc. and Next Opportunity Group, the iLEAD executive education program offered events in both the United States and China. Students found themselves engaged everything from meetings with top business professionals to seminars with leading professors from Cornell University and CKGSB to provide a learning experience that bridged cultural, international, business, and academic elements.

  • Participants earned a Cornell – CKGSB – US China – Next Opportunity group joint Professional Masters Certificate at the same time.
