    "... firms no longer see an MBA as a differentiating factor, unless it was obtained at one of the world’s best business schools."
    That's the kicker right there.

    I think the article is Asia specific. In the case of Canada, most business professionals placement agencies prefer people with MBA , CPA , CFA , PMP or other known designation. The MBA normally should be from a known school.

    I read the article, and I don't think it's Asia-specific, I think it's just not U.S.-centric. It mentions Indian institutions at one point and has a photo of a Chinese employment fair, sure, but the rest of it covers the rest of the world, including the U.S.
