Reverse brain drain: Chinese MBA programs lure Western students, faculty

It use to be, and continues to be to a large extent, that Chinese students will land in North America or Europe pursuing higher education. The trends ar fast changing. China is now attracting students and faculty from North America.

This makes sense to a large extent. The professors in North America are delaying retirement resulting in a large number of unemployed PhDs searching for openings. Chinese universities could be the prefect launching pad for such faculty. At the same time, privatized MBAs have become prohibitively expensive without offering any real differentiation or competitive advantage. Chinese MBAs could be good place to learn about doing business in China than paying $100,000 to a North American university for similar course contents!
