The First Light Academy

The First Light Academy is a premier global executive education institution offering programs of the highest intellectual quality and practical relevance, with an emphasis on issues related to China’s integration into the global economy.

China’s economic growth and integration into the world economy have created unprecedented, and largely unmet, demand by Chinese professionals for best-of-breed, internationally- and practically-oriented management training, and by international executives for training on all aspects of doing business in China. Founded by a group of Chinese American professionals and companies, First Light is dedicated to helping meet this demand by delivering well-designed education and training programs in both China and the US.

First Light maintains a world-class core faculty and a good number of associates drawn from a pool of leading academics and expert practitioners around the world. They represent the best source of original ideas, real-world expertise, and global and local insights.
