[photopress:MBA_Asian_programs.jpg,full,alignright]Business schools in Asia have a hard time competing against their international counterparts. This according to the The Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive survey of recruiters.
Jeanette Purcell, chief executive of the Association of M.B.A.s, the London-based international membership and accreditation agency for MBAs, said, ‘It takes time to establish a school’s credentials, to attract quality students and academics.’
And academic officials said many employers and recruiters in Asia remain resistant to the benefits of a master’s of business administration.
This year, 4,430 recruiters participated in the survey, between mid-December and late March. The survey is in its seventh year.
In recent years, the international list has been dominated by European, Canadian, Mexican and U.S. schools. One of the Asian schools often cited as up-and-coming is China Europe International Business School in Shanghai.
