International business and education expert John Quelch will step down as dean of the University of Miami’s Herbert School of Business on December 2. 31 The school announced Friday after more than five years in the role.
Previously, Quelch was well known and respected in China as Dean, Associate Dean and Professor of International Management at China Europe International Business School from 2011 to 2013 in Shanghai. Dean of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and London Business School. Quelch will begin a vacation year in January 2023.
On the sidelines of Forbes China’s U.S.-China Business Forum in New York in August, Quelch lamented that U.S. universities were becoming less attractive to Chinese students.
“What we’re seeing right now is a waning enthusiasm among Chinese students and their parents to enter U.S. institutions,” Quelch said in an interview with Forbes Fifth.
“Australia, Canada, the UK and other European countries have stepped up efforts to attract Chinese students over the past decade,” he said. “And in many cases, they’ve had great success at the expense of the U.S., which isn’t necessarily as hospitable in terms of visa processing, admissions, and other logistically related factors that go into the equation of where international students go to study.”
The growth in the number of Chinese students attending U.S. colleges helps domestic students, as well as the U.S. economy. About one-third of the more than one million international students in the United States come from China, and their combined contribution to the U.S. economy is about $15 billion in annual export earnings.
