A centrally located campus in China’s biggest city

Hult’s Shanghai campus is positioned right in the thick of the action on People’s Square, surrounded by the soaring skyscrapers of the city’s commercial and financial district. Shanghai’s most famous shopping street, Nanjing Road, the outstanding Shanghai Museum, and the green spaces of People’s Park are all minutes away.

Award-winning architectural design

Our Shanghai campus has won several architectural awards. State-of-the-art classrooms, computer laboratories, and spacious student lounges are all designed to create a calm ambiance, providing a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown Shanghai.

Campus life

The students that rotate to Shanghai tend to form a tight-knit community and tend to have an adventurous spirit. There is a packed schedule of social and career events on and off campus.

Be inspired by our guest speakers

Insightful, motivating, and often revelatory, our speaker events are some of the most highly anticipated campus events. Hult Shanghai has recently hosted speakers from Apple, Unilever, Rovio Entertainment (the Angry Birds company), the Economist Intelligence Unit, KPMG, Accenture, Microsoft, and sustainability pioneer Peggy Liu, Chair of the Joint U.S. China Collaboration on Clean Energy (JUCCCE).

Work with global players and local influencers

Business leaders in Shanghai are keen to connect with international talent and company visits, guest speakers, lunchtime seminars, one-off presentations, and student clubs provide frequent opportunities for face-to-face meetings. Past Business Challenge partners include Hangzhou-based Alibaba.com.

Live in the sophisticated cultural center of China

Shanghai has a well-deserved reputation as China’s most cosmopolitan city. A young, creative, and internationally aware population has seen the rise of “Shanghai Chic”—a booming fashion scene, much talked about art movement, world-renowned restaurants and shopping districts, and a lively nightlife. In Shanghai you can also discover China’s fascinating history and experience a unique culture.

I’m surrounded by people with shared values, in a new environment, taking on an exciting challenge— there is an extraordinary atmosphere of collaboration.
