[photopress:Rutgers_Beijing_students.jpg,full,alignright]Rutgers Business School has been offering graduate business instruction in China on a continuous basis since 1994 which is longer than any other American business school. The Executive MBA program has been cited by the Financial Times as one of the ten best in China. Classes are offered in both Beijing and Shanghai. It is reported that it is now looking at a third location to expand its offering.
(There is competition even from universities within geographical striking distance: Kean University is opening a campus in China later this year. William Paterson has established links with Chinese universities, and hosts summer business camps for their students. Montclair State University has embarked upon a program with the Walt Disney Corporation to host students from China in an internship program in Orlando, Florida. Disney is apparently planning a theme park in Shanghai.)
Montclair’s Business Dean Alan Oppenheim, who is married to the Rutgers acting dean, said, ‘The world doesn’t end at the Hudson.’
Interesting because many American businesses, especially in the area of IT, thinks the world ends in San Francisco. Encouraging to hear someone thinking outside the boundaries of a few states.
