The Antai college at Shanghai Jiao Tong University features a dual-degree program and faculty from MIT Sloan and other top schools

Originally an engineering and hard sciences university, Shanghai Jiao Tong surprised everyone when its Antai School of Business showed up as No. 41 on the Financial Times rankings in 2008. The school has since dropped from the listings, but no one at Antai thinks it was a fluke. With a new American dean, growing faculty, and more international students, Antai has positioned itself as one of the top programs in China.

While other business schools build up traditional majors focused mainly on the service sector, Antai has played to its, and China's, strength and has established one of the best manufacturing-oriented programs in the country. In partnership with MIT's Sloan School of Management (Sloan Full-Time MBA Profile), Antai set up the China Leaders of Global Operations program to tap into the growing ranks of engineers and manufacturing entrepreneurs looking to beef up their business knowledge. The program is an intense two-and-a-half-year program resulting in an MBA and MS in engineering.

In addition to Jiao Tong's Chinese faculty, Antai brings in foreign professors to teach the program from Sloan and other top business schools, such as Stanford (Stanford Full-Time MBA Profile), giving students access to the most advanced manufacturing business models. This is key for China's next generation of manufacturing managers, as the country can not rely indefinitely on cheap labor to drive its economy and must import more high-tech and efficient methods.

A New Dean Who's International

Antai has long been a top program in China but has lagged other schools in developing an international brand and drawing foreign students. That is expected to change, however, with the arrival of Zhou Lin, a Princeton-educated American economist who left a tenured position at Duke to come to China. As one of a handful of schools in China with a foreign dean, Antai is sending a clear signal that its MBA program is looking to be more international.

"The education system is still the most protected industry in China—there's almost no foreign [competition]," says Zhou. "So the only way I can make a difference is by coming here and helping to change it from the inside."

A self-described "hard-core academic" who has conducted research on everything from game theory to voting behavior, Zhou has pushed Antai's professors to take their research to a higher level. They are now expecting to publish in more peer-reviewed journals in English.

"If we're going to compete with other schools in Asia, our scholarship needs to meet an international standard," Zhou says.

Students are taking note. The most recent intake saw an increase in the number of foreign students. "The longer I study here, the more I realize this is a great place for me to get an internationally recognized MBA—while also getting to know a lot about China," says Mateo Radnic, a Chilean MBA student.
