I don't mind going to school in Asia, but my understanding is that everyone in Asia first places US / Europe schools before Chinese schools. Even Chinese people get their MBA's in the states =P
Sure, companies hiring for operations, management, management consulting, and finance sometimes prefer the 'prestige' of a degree from overseas when hiring their MBAs. But marketing is a different ballgame.
Please take the following with a grain of salt, as I know nothing about your background, but have you lived in or spent time in Asia at all? China is an incredibly unique country with a very specific working environment and they are fiercely proud of that. So while they may seek out a 'white guy in a tie' occaisionally to earn some face (see: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/arc ... -guy/8119/
if you missed that brouha) it certainly isn't the norm. Unless you have significant marketing experience in Asia already, or signficant experience in the States and can find a position with a Chinese company wanting to now target the States, I think you'll find it really tough going. Probably 85% of business in the local market comes down to guanxi
, which doesn't leave much room for waiguoren
to make an impact.
Ditto exactly tmino's recommendations of HKUST and CEIBS from an Asia b-school perspective. Those programs are growing in prestige and have hired a number of very prominent American professors in recent years. Peking and Tsinghua are considered the best local ones, but (anecdotally) foreigners seem to struggle as it's more of a local education and I've heard professors slip back into Chinese at times. A number of classes at both are taught exclusively in Chinese.
Best of luck with your quest to make this happen! If you want to post more info about your background and more specifics about what type of marketing position you're interested in, I'd be happy to provide further information if possible.
