There are many reasons why people choose to do an MBA which including salary, career prospects and networking. Networking is probably the key reason why people study an MBA in China. Generally speaking, MBA in China aims to provide managerial students with the ability to lead, design and implement suitable systems and practices for organizations operating in China and global business environments. Today’s MBA programs in China are designed to prepare both Chinese and foreign managers for senior leadership positions in China.

International students can choose to study in Chinese or English taught MBA programs in China depends on their Chinese and English proficiency. In most programs, courses are taught by both Chinese and foreign professors. MBA in China expect applicants to have at least 3 years working experience and a bachelor’s degree or above. The main concern for foreign companies doing business in China is talent. Most senior Chinese managers are not familiar with western management techniques, so big multinationals frequently have little choice but to import talent from the overseas. But then the companies are headed by managers who may have little understanding of Chinese business practices. It is important that foreign companies need capable managers in China. Given the growth in demand for foreign investment in China, there is a real shortage. More MBA education is required both in the Chinese ways of doing business and the Western ways. It becomes absolutely critical to compete and grow in China.

                                          WHY STUDY MBA IN CHINA

MBA in China has a very short history in China although it could be traced back to the late nineteenth century. After the restructure of higher education in 1979, modern management education has resumed. Bachelor programs in management started to appear, followed by Master and PhD programs. As the major part of management education, Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs were first launched in 1991. At that time, there were only 9 MBA programs in China. In 2016, there are 236 MBA programs in China.

Apart from the truth that English-taught MBA programs are offered in most of Chinese universities, you can also get a huge opportunity in learning Chinese language since nearly all MBA programs will offer different levels of Chinese language study. Though some students, especially non-Asian ones, do not learn Chinese or make little effort, yet this is one of the greatest benefits as Chinese language provides an insight into cultural understanding. Thus, advice to all students coming to China is not to ignore Chinese study, and not only learn to speak Mandarin but to learn to write and read Chinese characters, which is far easier than many think.

As more and more western universities are establishing partnership with Chinese universities, joint MBA programs offered by a leading Chinese university and a respectable western business school are becoming a favored option for international students. One good example could be the International MBA program offered by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, which is co-founded by Xi’an Jiaotong University from China and University of Liverpool from the UK. In these joint programs, the faculty members, well-balanced in experience and specialties, are equipped with leading academic capability and devotion to the cause of education, all being professional and dedicating in teaching.

Besides, perhaps even more attractive may be a program offered in China by a western university directly, which is something Nottingham University has offered at their Ningbo campus since 2003.

 

One of the chief benefits of a China based MBA is the booming job market. There is rapid growth in many sectors including financial services, healthcare, and consumer goods. There are also emerging industries that China supports with economic policies i.e. high value-added manufacturing, new materials, renewable energy and other clean tech fields. All of these sectors have a great need for managerial talent. At the same time, more and more Chinese firms are going global and consequently are seeking internationally capable managers. So opportunities abound.

Moreover, a large number of Chinese firms are exploring overseas markets now, therefore, they tend to hire a foreign national to help them build a customer and distribution base in the employee’s home country. So really, a China MBA has value no matter what you do, and getting an MBA from a Chinese school will stand you in much better stead to work in China after graduating.
