(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.
