No Asian Campus for Harvard Business School

The new dean of Harvard Business School has dismissed the idea of opening an Asian campus to serve the huge demand for business education in the region, especially among students from China and India, reports the Wall Street Journal.

 

In an interview with the Journal, Indian-born Nitin Nohria says that Harvard prefers to maintain "a small physical footprint" in Asia through research centers and executive-education programs."

 

Nohria told the Journal that about 40% of all Harvard Business School students are foreigners. 

 

The Journal reveals that other U.S. universities are said to be interested in both the Chinese and Indian markets.
