Duke Expands Presence in China
Duke University has forged two new cooperative partnerships in China which will significantly increase the university’s presence in that country and create new opportunities for education, research and public service, the school announced Friday.
Duke President Richard H. Brodhead‘s recent trip to China culminated in a formal announcement of the partnership agreements during a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of a planned Duke University campus in the city of Kunshan, which boasts one of the fastest-growing economies in China.
The Duke-Kunshan campus, a partnership between the university and the municipal government, will include a five-building teaching, research and residential center built by the municipal government, the school has reported.
Duke’s Fuqua School of Business will lead the first phase, which will focus on executive MBA and non-degree executive education programs, a pre-experience management training master’s degree, training of Ph.D. students and the recruitment of top faculty. Duke’s educational partner in this venture is Shanghai Jiao Tong University, one of the leading universities in China.
