[photopress:mba_chines_students.JPG,full,alignright]An interesting article on the advance of business schools in China to seriously competitive level.
A year ago, BusinessWeek reported that Chinese business schools were a disappointment to recruiters. In fact, less than 20% of recruiters found that grads of Chinese business schools were ‘good’ or ‘excellent.’
As, at the time, China had only had MBA programs for about 15 years that is not too shabby a result. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Yet, here we are a year later in a recent study, more than one-third of recruiters — 34% — termed the graduates of China’s MBA programs ‘good’ or ‘excellent.’
You can read the full article in BusinessWeek, ‘Chinese B-Schools Lift their Game’.
One recruiter said the quality of Chinese MBAs is ‘is becoming better and better.’
So what made the change? The study suffests that it was in a large part in having curriculum and case studies that are more relevant to Chinese students. Schools are incorporating elements of Chinese philosophy into their programs and combining them with Western management theories. They are also drawing international students for such countries as Italy, Russia, Malaysia, India and the U.S.
Another way of putting in is China has developed its own style of business education and the better shools are getting it right.
