In Kunshan, China, you will be in the heart of the Yangtze River Delta Region, nestled between Shanghai, a global financial hub, and Suzhou, one of China’s most renowned cultural cities. Widely considered as a successful model for China’s social and economic development, Kunshan has attracted a number of Fortune 500 companies and other leading enterprises.
Durham and Kunshan, although very different from each other, are both great places to study. In Durham, you see what it’s like going to school at such a prominent and beautiful place as Duke, experiencing all the traditions that come with it like attending sporting events, visiting the Duke Chapel, and eating southern food. In Kunshan, you get to observe what modern development is like in China, and appreciate the balance between living outside the downtown area of Kunshan and being able to travel to Shanghai, one of the busiest cities in the world, just a train ride away.
