China has been publicly seeking to take the lead in globalization, developing its higher education and research systems at speed, and actively pursuing to cooperate with academic partners along the New Silk Roads. When Chinese students come to countries along the Belt and Road of different cultural habits and religious beliefs, how to help them to solve cultural barriers has become an urgent problem. The paper used cross-cultural management theory to explore the connotation of cross-cultural management of Chinese students, to understand the cross-cultural barriers, and to analyze the cultural differences of Chinese students in Malaysia. The research results revealed that there were some shortcomings in the cross-cultural management of Chinese students, including insufficient English language training for Chinese students, the difficulty in understanding cultural differences, and low classroom participation. By performing direct interviews, there was a high demand for academic guidance, psychological counseling, and employment assistance for Chinese students. Finally, analyzing the cultural differences of international students and evaluating cross-cultural management in a targeted manner was significantly important to reduce cultural conflicts, improve the quality and efficiency of the inter-cultural relation, and enhance the competitiveness of Chinese students in the global market.
