Are Asia universities provide a viable further education alternative compared with Western universities?


The decision to study in Asia may be a wise one, as the continent is poised to dominate the 21st century. Asia's economic, political and multi-cultural importance is growing at a fast and never-before seen rate.  In addition to economic and population booms, many Asian countries are also undergoing rapid growth in their higher education sectors, meaning ever more attractive options for prospective students.

From established powerhouses like Japan and Hong Kong to the newly formed university hubs of the ASEAN region and, of course, the ever-increasing might of China, the continent offers a wealth of options to the student looking to get a head start in an international career.

Having studied abroad in Asia is a valuable asset on your resume when competing for job. Many fortune 500 companies are expanding to Asia in particular in China and need employees with experience of Asian cultures, language and business methods. In China, Beijing has recorded a total of 48 headquarters of companies on the Fortune's Global 500 list in 2013, overtaking Tokyo for No 1 for the first time in the ranking of city with the most profitable companies in the world. As such, students with the first hand knowledge on Asia have an edge and advantage when applying job.
