|Dates / Deadlines:|
There are currently no active application cycles for this program.
Shanghai is the most populous city in the People’s Republic of China boasting over 23 million residents and is located at the mouth of the Yangtze River in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. It is a global city with major influence in commerce, culture, finance, media, fashion, technology and transport. Shanghai also has the world’s largest container port.
For centuries a major administrative, shipping and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port location and economic potential. The city was one of several opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War and the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking which allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement. The city then flourished as a hub of commerce between east and west. 1949 the Communist Party took over the mainland and trade was reoriented to focus on socialist countries and the global influence of Shanghai decline. During the 1990s, Deng Xiaoping introduced economic reforms which resulted in an intense re-development of the city.
Shanghai is a popular tourist destination and renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, Yu Garden and the ever growing Lujiazui skyline. Shanghai is often descripted as the “showpiece” of the booming economy of mainland China.
