(Wall Street Journal) — U.S. graduate business schools are losing their iron grip on the thriving market for international M.B.A. students. At the 25 U.S. graduate-business programs that award the largest numbers of degrees to international students, applications for the 2011 fall semester declined 4%, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Council of Graduate Schools, based in Washington, D.C. Although international applications to all American business schools rose by 4%, that figure paled in comparison to the 12% growth in international bids to U.S. programs offering degrees in engineering and physical and earth sciences, the survey said. Business-school deans attribute the relatively sluggish growth to a growing number of high-quality competitors overseas.

(Crain’s) — The Lake Forest Graduate School of Management is more than tripling the size of its Schaumburg location in a move to a building two miles south of its longtime site. The private, non-profit school signed an 11-year lease for 14,000 square feet at 1300 E. Woodfield Road, where it plans to open late this year. The new location in a seven-story building near Meacham Road has a higher profile that Lake Forest’s current location at 1295 E. Algonquin Road on the Motorola Inc. campus. The school currently has 4,000 square feet under a lease that expires at year-end, a spokeswoman says.
