In 2016, the Carlson School of Management announced the creation of a joint research center established in collaboration with the Antai College of Economics andManagement (Shanghai Jiao tong University). The center will be based in Shanghai and is expected to facilitate opportunities for joint research, faculty exchanges, and joint workshops and conferences.
“We have been offering degree programs in China through our China Executive MBA Program in Guangzhou, short-term global enrichment programs for our students, and semester exchange opportunities for several years,” says Professor and Associate Dean of Global Initiatives Michael Houston who serves as center director. “This center adds an important new dimension to our presence in China. It builds on the research strengths of both the Carlson School and Antai and offers new collaborative research opportunities for our faculty and Ph.D. students."
