The future of the MBA in the Asia-Pacific region

November 29th, 2013

The Association of MBAs arranges both global and regional conferences. The Asia-Pacific regional conference was hosted by Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China on November 27-29, 2013. At the conference business schools offering MBA programmes came together to exchange experiences and discuss common topics that relate to the evolution of MBA programmes, such as content, delivery formats and learning processes.

For us, being a Swedish school, the conference gave a lot regarding the Asian context. In China, alone, there are 236 university-affiliated business schools that offer MBA programmes. These schools produce annually 30,000 MBA graduates and 9,000 Executive MBA graduates.
