Introduction
The pursuit of a higher education degree in business is now international. A survey
shows that more and more Asians choose the Master of Business Administration
degree route to corporate success. As a result, the number of applicants for MBA
courses at Asia-Pacific schools continues to increase.
Across the region, thousands of Asians show an increasing willingness to temporarily
shelve their careers and spend two years in pursuit of a theoretical business
qualification. Courses in these schools are notoriously tough and include economics,

thinking, business law, and more. Given data set shows some of the characteristics of
the leading Asia-Pacific business schools.
