Abstract

From the perspectives of capital market performance and social responsibility, this paper empirically tests the effect of MBA education in China. The research shows that, on the one hand, the current problems of MBA education in China are mainly reflected in the following aspects: weak integration with the reality of Chinese enterprises, insufficient teachers, inadequate selection mechanism for students, less coordination between quality and quantity, and lower social recognition; on the other hand, the effect of China’s MBA education is more reflected in the performance of social responsibility, and the company’s social responsibility is better performed after the CEO received the MBA education compared to the Growth Enterprises Market (GEM) listed companies where the CEO didn’t receive MBA education, but the company’s performance in the capital market doesn’t show any substantial difference. The research in this paper broadens the research scope of MBA education in China, and has certain reference value for understanding the actual effect of MBA education.
