MBA IN ASIA for non Chinese speakers, career opportunities afterwards?

I have seen some posts here and spoken to many people on the subject.

My conclusion, the dream of going to China getting an MBA and becoming a hot shot is late by about 5 years.

No language skills = no job in China we all know that by now. Also, westerners are not as welcomed as they used to be. There is local talent on the ground already and its not only the language barrier but you 'also need an asian looking face to succeed. nationalism has risen in china the last few years people reallly believed that china will "take over the world" kind of thing.....there is no lack of english speaking people by any means....

Not too sound too pesimistic but think hard about your choices and where you want to be 5 yrs out of school and how realistic that goal is.

One can still succeed in Singapore and Hong Kong but that window is closing as well.
