In the highly competitive business today, good corporate governance is a must for every company to thrive in the future. The principles of good corporate governance are developed to be believed as the values of success in each company. On the other hand, ethnicity and culture is a given condition that has already existed, even cultivated inside each company for many years. The businesses operated by Chinese, even for overseas Chinese are still heavily influenced by their ethnicity and culture, including for Chinese Indonesian (Tionghoa). This business practice conceptually is known as Overseas Chinese Business (OCB) model. This study tries to explain the relationship and impact of ethnicity and culture of Chinese Indonesians on the practice of corporate governance in their business. The study implemented as grounded descriptiveinterpretive study to some prominent Chinese Indonesian businessmen in Surabaya. Interestingly found that the ethnicity and culture of Chinese Indonesian businessmen in Surabaya are not totally consistent with the model of Overseas Chinese Business, but the business practices are reflecting the good corporate governance.
