[photopress:chinajobseekers_1.jpg,full,alignright]Arizona State University has several high-profile education and research programs under way in China. Phil Regier, deputy dean of the W.P. Carey School of Business, said, ‘ASU’s efforts in China have given the Tempe-based school ‘connectivity with really top business leaders in the fastest growing economy in the world. We are now known in China at the highest levels as one of the premier U.S. universities.’
The university became involved in China in the 1990s when the business school joined with Motorola to offer a Masters of Business Administration program to the American company’s Chinese executives.
As an outgrowth of that program, ASU created a partnership with the Shanghai National Accounting Institute to offer an expanded MBA program for top executives of China’s state-owned enterprises. Classes were launched on September 20. Graduates of the two-year program earn degrees from Arizona State University and the Shanghai National Accounting Institute.
