US business schools losing market share

A report released this week by the Graduate Management Admission Council reveals that business schools in the United States lost market share again in 2011. The percentage of test scores being sent to schools in the United States dipped from 83 percent in 2007 to 77 percent in 2011. A growing number of students in Europe are pursuing options closer to home, and those in East and Southeast Asia are also applying in many different parts of the world. Results do, however, show that Middle Eastern citizens are sending more scores to programmes in the United States.

The report compared the number of people taking the council’s Graduate Management Admission Test in 2007 and 2011, and examined trends in where they were sending their scores.

    US Schools continue to lose student due to unclear visa regulations. Out of the 40 new EMBA programs that are conducted partially outside of US, the requirements for visas is very unclear. In some cases, students can travel to attend 2/3 week sessions on tourist visas/business visas and in other cases, an F1 Visa is required. As universities do not assist with the visa process or even try to get clarity on the process, the students try and stay away from such schools. Reduced H1B Visa, unclear and ambiguous regulations for visas for EMBA Students are combined eroding the overall value of US Schools. Other B Schools in the world are taking advantage of this situation.
