Universities

Shanghai University, established in 1922, is a public, research-driven university at the heart of the city of Shanghai. The university gained its current form in 1994 after four different universities in Shanghai, all leaders in their fields of expertise, merged. Coincidentally, the current Shanghai University enjoys a reputation of having an excellent curriculum across different fields of studies. Shanghai is one of the most important finance centers in Asia and hosts dozens of international corporations’ Asian headquarters. Shanghai is a great choice for students interested in a career in international business. Read more

Students testimonials

"All the teachers are extremely professional. I'm so glad that our studies consist of many different courses and give us a comprehensive and in-depth view of the Chinese language, culture, economics and law.”

“One of the things I could never have imagined beforehand is how much this experienced contributed towards and benefited my career. I started to look for summer jobs and internships when I knew that I am coming to study here. I sent three applications to different places and I got all the jobs -all three!”
Jenna Hytti (Finland), studied in Guangzhou

"Studying abroad in Shanghai gave a direction to my life. That is when Asia truly started to amaze me and it has affected my personal and professional life ever since. Without the semester abroad I wouldn’t be where I’m now and I would have missed so many opportunities. I can only say that studying abroad is the best decision one can ever make during the study years."
- Harri, former exchange student in Shanghai and a co-founder of Asia Exchange
