Rather depends what the company does. If it's investment banking or nuclear fusion, quite a lot. If it's making tea bags I wouldn't expect a huge salary.

I think you will also need experience and proven results, not just a degree. China is also pushing for more Chinese to take on the jobs, and less foreigners. Mandarin is also required for many jobs now.

 

Also, I think the idea that foreigners make more than Chinese is a myth. With grey money, Chinese probably make far more.

 

EDIT: Also, a masters degree from a western university is worth far more than a masters degree from a Chinese university, so that is an unfair comparison.

First of all, you need to learn how to write a sentence in English! Okay? How much can an expat/expatriate/foreign expatriate make in a Shanghai Chinese company with a Master's Degree?

Unless you have a specialised degree you won't make more than the locals and you probably won't get any job. Do you speak Mandarin? Have an engineering degree? 

Your options are limited, and as other mentioned, your writing leaves much to be desired.

Not going to sugar coat it for you. Your chances are low if no chance at all. I work for a major company in China and HR get emails everyday from people just like yourself who think they are better than the rest for the reason you have a masters speak english and it means you automatically get a job.
Will also add that directors for major companies Chinese and Expats their is little salary difference between them.Also does your masters teach you for example the ins and outs of Chinese Banks or Engineering to name a few? My guess is no. Expats working in China have built up years of experience and knowledge to apply to the business in China.

It depends on what you have your masters degree in. Under water basket weaving brings you 10RMB per hour. Franck3

A lot will also depend on the universitiy's name on that Master's degree... if it says 'Oxford University', or 'MIT' or something, then yes, it will give you more money.

 

If it's from 'Miskatonic University', you'd better be doing some really dark stuff, or it won't mean a hell of a lot!

 

However, a Master's in a relevant field to English teaching can double or treble your pay in some good universities and school... but the competition is pretty stiff!

 

In most other fields, that piece of paper on its own won't do a lot... having quite a few years experience (back home) will! (again, depending on the field)

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
