Reputable or not? MBA/MPP/MPA


cnpride
Hi guys,

I'm 22 female, ethnically Chinese but educated and raised in the UK. I graduated young and have over 2 years work experience within investment banking. I want to get out of London and experience higher education in China mainly due to the fact that I may receive full scholarship (providing that I get admitted to the course that I want).

I have many of the topics on this forum regarding an MBA at Tsinghua and Peking University - there has been very mixed feedback. I am very attracted by the dual degree that Tsinghua offers in collaboration with MIT. What worries me about studying in China, Tsinghua in particular is, I've heard, very academic, there's little socialising and societies compared to those in the US or Europe. I partly go for an enjoyable experience as well as an academic degree.

I am currently looking at a MPP or MPA degree at the school of government [url]http://www.sg.pku.edu.cn/en/Overview.asp[/url]
There is an equivalent at Harvard University and it doesn't take a genius to conclude that the one at Harvard is obviously much more reputable. Can someone please shed some light on this? I imagine it would be difficult to get a job in the Chinese government given that I'm not a Chinese national. Although I thought perhaps, consultancy in the public sector would be an option. Can anyone suggest where this would get me?

I want a reputable degree (even if it's just within China) from a reputable University. Other suggestions of courses would be very welcome! :clap

Tsinghua MBA offers 2 programs that you could spend 1 year in China and 1 in another University. 1 is HEC in Paris with its MBA program and the other is at MIT in Boston in its Masters of Management. The problem for these programs is that you have to pay the full scholarship. If you are just doing an exchange, you get to pay the Chinese tuition - so $10 thousand for a semester at Yale or NYU when it would be double or triple for a US MBA.

CEIBS has a program where you can do the MBA and do an exchange. One of the options for exchange is with Tufts Fletcher School which is highly reputable in the world for international public policy.

HKU MBA has a program that allows you to do a year in Columbia University which also is well known for its public policy in its SIPA courses. This is likely much more expensive than domestic programs.

You should also look at John Hopkins Nanjing program - which is 2 years in mostly Chinese but its foreign graduates usually end up having the best Chinese language skills of all foreigners in China due to the intensity.


Socially - you will have to accept that it will be more about the city than the academic environment. All of the cities above (with the exception of Nanjing) easily compare to London with regard to nightlife and culture.
