Duke Kunshan is different in three ways. First, we offer an innovative liberal arts curriculum that is at the cutting edge of knowledge and practice. The curriculum was developed after careful consideration of the key strengths and weaknesses of higher education in China and the U.S. The curriculum is derived from the academic excellence associated with Duke University, consistently ranked among the top ten universities in the U.S. according to U.S. News & World Report.
Second, Duke Kunshan is a research-oriented university. We take great pride in the fact that our faculty are known for excellence in teaching and research. With special relevance to China, including global health, environment, innovation, and research & development management.
Third, on our state-of-the-art campus, we offer a total student experience second to none. We go the extra mile to ensure that each student has exciting extracurricular "outside the classroom" experiences that complement the innovative learning environment within the classroom.
