As per the report, through the B-schools in Europe and US still remain the red hot destinations for MBA aspirants, although business schools in Asia-Pacific region are also gaining popularity. The academic standards of top B-Schools in Europe and America have set a benchmark for the B-schools in Asia-Pacific, who are currently trying to come at par with their academic standards. The report also reveals that the economic development in some of the Asian countries specifically in India and China has increased the demand of accredited B-schools in the zone so that the aspiring business leaders can be trained.

However, the minimal number of international students enrolled in the B-schools of Asia-Pacific is a major concern. The report reveals that many business schools in Asia do not have any international students enrolled for any programmes.
