About DKU

Duke Kunshan University (DKU) is a Sino-American partnership of Duke University and Wuhan University aiming to create a world-class liberal arts and research university which will offer a range of academic programs for students from China and throughout the world. A non-profit, joint-venture institution, Duke Kunshan University was granted accreditation approval by China’s Ministry of Education in September 2013 and welcomed its inaugural class of students in August 2014.

About the Program

The four-semester, 16-course iMEP program is designed to capture the skills necessary for a new generation of environmental leaders. It is the first in the world to draw together the important core requirements in environmental management and public policy. These include economics, political science, sociology, history, law, statistics and environmental science.

Building on the strong relationship between the iMEP program and Duke University, iMEP students will have the opportunity to spend a semester at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, USA, where they will interact with the broader Duke faculty, gain additional English-language experience, and build networks with US-based contacts.

The iMEP faculty is internationally recognized for rigorous research and active engagement in current environmental policy debates, with expertise ranging from air and water pollution, energy, climate change, food, ecology, and conservation. In addition to the core faculty, a rotating roster of preeminent professors from Duke University will come to Duke Kunshan each semester to teach, conduct research and advise students.
