In the past, New York and London were considered to be the cities of choice for top-notch MBA graduates. But, since job markets in the West have gone downhill, the positive outlook for Asia – with China as the region’s economic growth engine – has, according to Richard Bland, an Associate Director at London Business School’s career services recruitment team, recently drawn more graduates to Hong Kong.
He said dozens of graduates of London Business School, widely considered to be among the global top-five business schools, visited Hong Kong this week for unofficial meetings with figures at major financial institutions here
Bland was in Hong Kong, arranging the meetings between the graduates and the eight financial institutions, which included Citigroup.
Bernama reported that in speaking to reporters, he said many students are starting to turn their attention to Asia, as it has rebounded rapidly from the financial crisis.
