[photopress:Peking_university.jpg,full,alignright]China has been out encouraging students from other places in the world to get their MBA qualifications in China. Peking University, seen here, was a participant in The MBA Experience and Getting Into Business School which was held in conjunction with the World MBA and World Grad School Tour in Kuala Lumpur last week. It was attended by over 1,000 people.
This tour is claimed to be a primary recruitment tool for the world’s leading business schools. Kuala Lumpur is the tour’s next to last stop in the Asia Pacific region.
About 1,200 people attended and got the chance to speak personally to representatives from about 50 of the world’s top universities and business schools at The Westin in Bukit Bintang.
Daisy Wang, MBA admissions manager of the Beijing International MBA programme at Peking University in China said the university was participating this year outside mainland China for the first time.
She said, ‘Last year, we were in Beijing and Shanghai only, but this year we came to Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Seoul and Hong Kong. The response has been better than expected as there is so much interest in China. International students make up about 32 percent of our full-time students with most coming from the US and Canada.’
Lee Yeing-Yeing, a Bachelor of Statistics holder from a local university, was surprised to discover that one of the exhibitors, the National University of Singapore, offered a dual MBA with Peking University.
