The Regional Experience
The Fuqua School of Business is deeply committed to China. With a world-class campus under construction in Kunshan, office space in downtown Shanghai, and an alumni presence throughout the country, we are an active and engaged member of this fast-growing and dynamic region.
Our global strategy is to embed and connect in the most important economic regions of the world. This approach allows us to understand China from a local perspective, while also providing a context for how China fits into the larger global business landscape. We are learning the infrastructure, the pertinent issues, key players, and cultural nuances that make this region tick. Even in the virtually connected world, there is no substitute for first-hand experience. By connecting the region to our base in Durham, North Carolina, USA, and all our locations around the world, we are uniquely qualified to train the leaders of a business environment without boundaries.

Alumni in China
One of the great benefits of the collaborative and inclusive personality of Duke is that the alumni network is not hampered by degree or school affiliation, but is extended to any graduate of any Duke program. China is home to many Duke alumni with a wide selection of academic and cultural backgrounds who are united by their experience and love of Duke.
More details about alumni activity can be found on the Fuqua Alumni pages. Active Duke and Fuqua alumni communities gather in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
We work closely with a variety of organizations and companies in China from state-owned enterprises to government ministries, private enterprises, and multinational corporations. In doing so, we seek out engaging speakers and insightful mentors for our students. Globally educated in a local context, our graduates offer unique human capital solutions to all of the above organizations in China's burgeoning economic climate.
We hope to continue to broaden our partnerships and involvement in China! Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com should you have questions about Fuqua activity in the region or wish to learn more about any of our programs.
