Our award-winning campus on People's Square places you at the heart of the city driving one of the world's largest economies. Surrounded by the city's financial and commercial districts, gain firsthand experience of hugely influential Asian business culture.

The heart of China

Shanghai is China's commercial and financial center, and the region's most influential city for international trade. With the Shanghai stock exchange now a major player, and the world's busiest container port operating out of the city, the biggest names on the global business circuit are flocking to Shanghai to ensure they don't miss out.

Award-winning architectural design

Our Hult 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.

Hult’s Shanghai campus is amazing – the community is very close. Students can easily communicate with faculty, speak to the Dean, and connect with their peers.

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.

There were so many Hult community events and parties, where we could relax, network, and discover Shanghai.
