Unless you are Chinese and have some pull it’s impossible to get into. There are some opportunities for foreigners to get into investment research in offshore shops, which I guess what you are doing since you are “covering” banking.

as far as MNCs go, it’s still feasible to find decent jobs there. You will probably make 30% of what you would make back home at the entry level, and about 75% at the mid management level of similar role back home. Obviously, it’s not as easy and language is a factor as well.

MNC corporations sending their “expats” who are sitting on “expat” package home, that’s true. But there is still need for foreign talent at mid levels if you are willing to work for a bit less as mentioned above.

Not sure which MBAs you are talking about but I have quite a few foreign friends with MBAs class 2012 and 2013 who were able to find nice gigs in Project Management, Real Estate Development, Sales and consulting jobs. Some of them (actually, most of them don’t speak Chinese at the level they can use at work)
