The Double World Class Project: Unequal Opportunities of Postgraduate Entrance in China 

In 2015, the Chinese State Council initiated a project to lift the status and international competitiveness of China’s higher education system. This “Double World Class” project supports elite universities in 100 disciplines. Recognizing that China needs a differentiated higher education system, the government is encouraging universities to exploit their advantages. Funding will be concentrated among those departments and schools close to becoming world-class, those seeking to address socio-economic needs, and those focused on emerging and interdisciplinary subjects. This talk discusses findings from a quantitative study on the Double World Class project as well as offers suggestions for enhancing postgraduate studies in Chinese higher education.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
