Known for its economic prowess and long history of foreign influence, Shanghai is the country’s financial and industrial capital. The last decade has seen massive development in this metropolis of over 19 million; construction of the city’s infrastructure and transportation system is constant. With an elevated light rail, the world’s first commercial high-speed maglev train, and 13 subway lines, the city boasts one of the fastest growing rapid transit systems in the world. Those in search of old Shanghai, however, can still find the legacy of its magnificent past.

The study abroad program in Shanghai is operated by CIEE and is a great opportunity for students from the College of Arts & Letters and Mendoza College of Business to learn more about China while taking classes in English. The program is located on East China Normal University (ECNU)’s downtown Putuo campus, which is known as the “Garden University” for its beautiful grounds by the Liwa River. Chinese language courses are also available and taught by full-time CIEE faculty members.
