SIPA has the most international and sophisticated faculty in political science and public administration in Mainland China. Nearly half of the SIPA’s 60 faculty members obtained Ph.D. from leading universities overseas, some of whom hold tenure professorship at prominent American or European universities. In the wake of internationalization of education, the school has attracted more and more international students to further their academic careers. In 2012, international master’s degree program“China’s Politics and Economy”achieves great success and become one of the brand internationalization teaching projects in Shanghai Jiao Tong University for its high education quality.
Since 2013, SIPA organized international graduate summer school every July, which was cosponsored by partner universities like Trinity University and Drexel University. The course paid attention to important issues in current Chinese political development and government reform from interdisciplinary perspective of political science, public policy and public management, to help graduate students understand the current public governance practice, and did more accurate and in-depth analysis of public policy, which had a strong theoretical and practical significance.
In order to stimulate creative thinking and promote academic exchange between Chinese and foreign country graduate students, this international graduate summer school will also arrange seminars and other activities to promote mutual understanding and to lay the foundation for the further development of academic exchanges.
