Zeng Jiani graduated from the University of Nottingham Ningbo last year with a degree in industrial design, Qianjiang Evening News reported.

Within a matter of months she had secured offers not only from MIT, but also from Harvard University, the School of Art Institute of Chicago, Rhode Island School of Design, Pratt Institute and two more besides.
To me, it shows America desperately need Chinese brains...

And from how many Chinese universities did she receive offers from? Any? Why are those not mentioned?

To me OP only demonstrates that the foreign universities are more notable and prestigious than Chinese universities, so of course she went there when she had the choice.

I fail to see how this shows anything toward US needing Chinese brains - rather the Chinese braiins wanting to go there.

They are  too rich to do study and travel at the same time. Its not surprising people like to get some foreign experience in their lifetime, and why not if they can afford it. Dont always think any foreign universities are of superiority, they are just places for travelling.

I'd have made the same decision, pleasure of traveling combined with foreign teaching skills.

In my opinion, this young lady is very smart...

US universities would give the same treatment to most nationals, especially ones who graduate from foreign attached schools in their home countries (and are therefore better connected) to begin with.

We still don't know how many Chinese universities offered her anything. Probably some did, but obviously they were not worth mentioning in OP. So why would she not pursue further education in USA...
