Popular choice

MBA programs attract people from a wide range of academic disciplines and business sectors with at least three years' work experience. Many of Zheng's classmates are managers in foreign companies or are successful businessmen in different industries.

Core courses cover such subjects as accounting, finance, marketing, human resources and operations management. Students have the option of taking general business courses throughout the program or can select an area of concentration and focus about one-fourth of their studies in this subject.

"In the 1990s, most Chinese people didn't know what an MBA was. But 20 years later, such a business education program has become the most popular degree for Chinese students who want to make greater achievements in the business world," said Wang Hua, who is China director of AEMBA. That program, started in 2003 at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, is a collaboration between its Antai School of Economics and Management and Euromed Marseille Ecole de Management.

"China's MBA education is becoming more internationalized as more programs are run in cooperation with overseas universities," Wang said. "That's a good way to promote a global perspective."
