[photopress:qian_li.jpg,full,alignright]The current economy of China has created enormous demand for well-trained managers. To cater for — or take advantage of — this boom a lot of new business schools have opened.
The figures tell the story. China’s Ministry of Education authorized nine domestic universities to launch Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs in 1991. Today, there are about 100 universities and colleges providing MBA courses. A large number of the programs have been strongly criticized as not being relevant.
Professor Qian Yingyi, dean of the School of Economics and Management, Tsinghua University and seen above, said, ‘We should never seek instant success and quick profits, but put our eyes on the future. Our business education needs to create talented people in economics and management who understand both rules of the market economy and the particular circumstances of Chinese enterprises.
‘Chinese business education also needs to create talented managers that can compete in the global market. Globalization is speeding up and China is more and more involved in world business. So we need to produce well-trained managers and business leaders that can win in the global game.’
