A growing number of foreign students are coming to China to study in various higher learning institutions. The growth of China over the past three decades has made the country one of the top destinations for international students.
The first program in the capital city to meet the demand was the Beijing International MBA (BiMBA) at Peking University, begun in 1998 as the first joint international MBA program in Beijing approved by the Chinese government.
Professor Bruce Stening, the Vlerick International Dean of the BiMBA, said, "Our goal is to build BiMBA into a world-class business school in China. I firmly believe that we can achieve the goal in the future regardless of hardship."
Students from 16 countries and regions across Europe, America and Asia have now joined the program. Increasing numbers of students come to China because of their interest in the Chinese market and to enhance their careers.
China Daily reports that BiMBA is keen to expand and participates in the world’s top MBA promotion tours – the MBA tour and World MBA tour – and visits about 20 cities across Europe, America and Asia every year to recruit potential applicants.
