Shanghai (December 12, 2019) – Recently, the US released the Open Doors
2019-Report on International Educational Exchange. It reveals that in
2019, the number of international students studying in the US reached a
new record. Among them, there are nearly 370,000 Chinese students, and
it has been the largest international students source in the US for the
10th consecutive year.

US business schools have always enjoyed a high international reputation.
Among top 50 global business school ranked by the Financial Times in
2019, 25 are from the US. Business still remains as a popular major
amongst Chinese students, with nearly 20% of the 370,000 Chinese
students choosing to pursue it in the US. Despite various reasons that
have led to a decline in the number of Chinese students studying in the
US recently, American universities still welcome international students
from China and are willing to provide multi-faceted support. US business
schools also pay special attention to the large number of Chinese
students studying business in the US.

新萄京娱乐场手机版 ,Recently, five top US business schools issued statements through
multiple channels expressing their welcome and recognition to Chinese
applicants, and recognize the importance and positive effects they bring
to US business schools. These include Harvard Business School, Yale
School of Management, Stanford Graduate School of Business, University
of Southern California (USC) Marshall School of Business, and Simon
Business School at the University of Rochester.

Eileen Chang, HBS MBA Admissions Director, stated the importance of
Chinese students:

“China’s importance in the global economy is reflected in the
perspectives brought to the classroom by our students from China. These
students can speak to what is happening within leading Chinese companies
such as Alibaba and Xiaomi or emerging local start-ups in industries
like fin-tech and electric vehicles. The unique knowledge they bring
from working in China helps their fellow students understand the
nuances, challenges and opportunities involved in a country that many
students are very curious about.”

Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) also issued a statement
showing commitment to attracting, educating, and supporting future
generations of Chinese leaders who will have great impact on the global
business stage:

“Chinese students may enjoy participating in our Asia Business Student
Association or our Greater China Business Club. They may choose to share
their homeland with other students by serving as a student leader for a
global study trip to China. There are many other opportunities – inside
and outside of the classroom – like the Stanford-Tsinghua Exchange
Program and Stanford China Economic Forum that promote dialogue, an open
exchange of ideas, and collaboration, as is Stanford’s tradition.”

Andrew Ainslie, Dean of the University of Rochester’s Simon Business
School, also expressed the school’s welcome and importance attached to
Chinese students:

“We make sure to go to China regularly to build the relationships
between us and China. So now we have not only a large number of
prospective students coming from China, but also a rapidly growing group
of alumni. I regularly visit Beijing and Shanghai, and spend time to
meet the alumni, prospective students, and deans from other schools. I
found that our MS degrees are enormously popular in China. They offer a
wonderful way in one year to jumpstart people’s careers and to get some
experiences in the US.”

In addition to MBA (Master of Business Administration), numerous other
master programs in business also generated popularity among Chinese
students. Every year, the University of Southern California (USC)
Marshall School of Business receives plenty of applications from Chinese
students for popular master’s programs in business analytics and
finance. In response, Evan Bouffides, Assistant Dean and Director,
Graduate Admissions, of the Marshall School of Business, stated:

“The USC Marshall Master of Business Analytics (MSBA) program is a data
science STEM program with a business layer laid on top of it. It is one
of the longest running MSBA programs in the nation, and top ranked in
the world. Meanwhile, The Master of Science in Finance program at USC’s
Marshall School of Business is on par with the best MS Finance programs
in the country and around the world. A differentiating factor of our
program is the flexibility students have to concentrate in various
functions within finance, and the long list of electives courses from
which they can choose.”

In addition to the welcoming messages from top American business
schools, Chinese students also gave positive feedback on the rewards
brought by studying business in the US. Yaping Wang, a Chinese student
studying at Harvard Business School, talked about the experiences and
gains of studying business there:

“The opportunity to meet people from diverse backgrounds and to hear
different perspectives and provocations attracted me to Harvard Business
School (HBS). I only applied to schools in the US because there were
great career exploration opportunities and also because I wanted to meet
friends from diverse background and ethnicities.”

Another Chinese student from Yale School of Management Megan Qian also
claimed that she garnered a lot from studying business in the United
States:

“To me, the value of US MBA is beyond a springboard for career switchers
or a reputable name that boosts my resume. It also means getting
international exposure, access to brilliant classmates from all over the
world, developing interdisciplinary strategic thinking and ultimately
becoming a more mature person. I am lucky to have found all of that and
more at Yale SOM.” ?

Committed to creating solutions for business schools and candidates to
better discover, evaluate and connect with each other, the Graduate
Management Admission Council (GMAC ?) indicates in a recent survey of
global talent mobility that the number of international applicants for
US business graduate programs in the 2019-2020 academic year decreased
by over 13 percent. According to Sangeet Chowfla, President and CEO of
GMAC, there are two specific factors to highlight when looking at
current international trends in the U.S.:

“The United States still offers a world-class business education and now
is a great time to apply. U.S. schools work very hard to create
welcoming environments for all their students and they attract
candidates from all over the world. Candidates who choose to attend a
business school in the United States will gain robust international
experience and in a globalized world, future business leaders—of both
Chinese and western organizations—will greatly benefit from such
perspective. However, there are two competing forces happening currently
that are impacting application volume in the U.S. First, quality
business schools are emerging in China and around the world and the
competition for talent globally is fierce. This is leading to a highly
competitive, dynamic marketplace. Additionally, GMAC data shows that the
current rhetoric in the U.S. on issues like immigration and visa policy
also impact how some candidates are making decisions. When you combine
these two realities, you begin to understand why some candidates are
selecting schools closer to their region.”
