During the past 40 years of China opening its door to the outside world, Chinese education has increasingly globalized, from early child education to the university level to continuing and executive education for adults. About 2,000 university-level international collaborative programs across China, hundreds of international K-12 schools, and thousands more international curriculum programs exist in China today.
The growth has of course come with ups and downs, especially during recent years as China has started to tighten regulations to make sure that the growth is within control and serving the interests of the country.
AmCham Shanghai's Education Committee has invited education leaders from three different continents to share their experience and perspective on China's education globalization. Join us for a panel discussion and highly interactive gathering, and a fine opportunity to meet professional colleagues from all over the world, on 24th of Sept, 3-4:40 PM at AmCham Shanghai, 1376 Nanjing Road West, Shanghai. This event is co-hosted by AmCham, BritCham, AfCham and Danish Chamber.
