Judging from the international successful experience and domestic policy orientation, school-enterprise cooperation has gradually become the key to improving the quality of vocational education. Accordingly, how to select the enterprise to participate in the vocational education has become a top challenge for schools. This paper uses the analytical network process (ANP) method to address this problem. As a practical decisionmaking method for complex problems, the ANP method determines the research objectives, selects the preferred evaluation indices, constructs the network structure, determines the relation matrix, builds the super matrix, and calculates the normalized feature vector of each index, i.e., the relative weight of each Level 3 indicator. According to the calculation results, suggestions are proposed: first, study and find out about the selection body of the enterprise involved in the vocational education, and then establish intermediary service agencies for school-enterprise cooperation in vocational education.
