The purpose of this research is to gain a better insight on motivations of Chinese students in Zhejiang Province to study abroad. The world is becoming more globalized with a continuing increase of importance on international business and education. Surveys were distributed and interviews were conducted to test the hypothesis: Does globalization affect Chinese student interest and motivation to study abroad? Results disclose five stages of motivation including personal dynamic, reverse motivation, parental influence, globalization persuasion, and outlying factors. Each category is analyzed and found to be unequally weighed in the decision making process of Chinese students in Zhejiang Province.
