US MBA with biggest alumni network in China

Hi forum members,
I'm researching US business schools that are suitable for a career in China. Do you know, which are the most popular US schools for Asian/Chinese students? I'm not considering Asian schools. Thank you

New York University’s Stern School has many MBA students from China, so does Duke Fuqua (around 10 per cent) and MIT’s Sloan School of Management (around 5 per cent). I only found data from two years ago, so those schools may even have more Chinese students this year.

By the way, almost a third of Chinese students in US are studying business/management: http://www.iie.org/en/Research-and-Publications/Open-Doors/Data/International-Students/Fields-of-Study-Place-of-Origin/2012-13
I just read that a Hong Kong born alumnus gave a donation of $350 Million to Harvard's School of Public Health: http://online.wsj.com/articles/harvard-gets-largest-ever-donation-1410148865 . Apparently, focusing on students from China is not a bad investment for US schools...

If you're strong enough for Harvard you should also consider HBS. They have some China activities going on (and at least three MBA students with Chinese surnames):

Wouldn't it be better to do your MBA in China if that's where you want to work? I find it hard to believe that having a good network in China would be better than being able to have your feet on the ground to look for a job.

I second razor. For a career in another country, an MBA in that country is the best path in most cases (if there are quality schools in that country).

A typical China-focused B-school in the US that comes into my mind is USC Marshall. They even offer an EMBA in Shanghai: http://www.marshall.usc.edu/gemba

Ok thanks, nevertheless I can't do a China MBA because of my family situation.

Although me-it's USC suggestion is a good suggestion, the fact is that the vast, vast majority of people working in management positions in China and who do have MBAs, did those MBAs in China. And those who did not do their MBA in China are most likely Chinese and did their MBA abroad to get international experience.

You'd have about as much luck landing a job in China with a degree from USC as you would with any good MBA with a large network: Columbia, LBS, etc.

Also, Duncan's "Do you need to speak the local language?" post is important to read:
