With an increasing interest in international business schools among Chinese, the 2005 World MBA Tour is making a stop in China offering applicants the chance to meet with more than 100 top international business schools.

"The next three years will be a vital period for China since it has joined the World Trade Organization," said Nunzio Quacquarelli, CEO of Quacauarelli Symonds Ltd (QS). "MBA graduates will have more opportunities in the future."

As the organizer of the 2005 World MBA Tour, QS launches the one-day tour in Shanghai today. Over 100 top business schools around the world, including Insead, IMD or Wharton, are part of the event.

Besides the first-hand information offered at the event, MBA applicants can submit their applications to the admission officers from these schools.

Matt Symonds, head of the World MBA Tour, considered 2005 as a promising year for MBA programmes and schools.

"There are two reasons behind the increasing numbers of Chinese applicants for many international business schools these years," he said. "Chinese graduates from business schools in North America and Europe have been earning a relatively high level of salary in recent years, and domestic demand for MBA graduates is still increasing."

Some renowned businesses also showed their interest in the MBA market in China.

Newly listed on Economist Intelligence Unit ranking as the top MBA school in Asia, the University of Hong Kong has made outstanding achievements in co-operation with Fudan University.

The tour will next make a stop in Beijing, and another campaign will be launched on Thursday.
