[photopress:MBA_Andrew_Lai.jpg,full,alignright]The sixth group of MBA students have come from China to participate in the year-long, intensive China executive MBA program at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.
Andrew Lai, emeritus professor at the business school — which is called the Raj Soin College of Business — is coordinator of the China executive MBA program. He said the 44 Chinese graduate students come from Beijing, Guanghou, Shenzhen and Shandong province.
He said, ‘Many universities are in competition for these students.’
Perhaps one of the differences is that this university supplies a solid academic program but also helps the Chinese students to learn the American way of life. The Chinese graduate students are assigned local host families with whom they live during their 12-month stays in the U.S.
In addition to their coursework, the local business community invites the Chinese students to talk to them about doing business in China. The illustration shows Andrew Lai taking a Tai Chi class.
