Message from the Leadership
Responding to the booming development of China’s cultural and creative industries, USC and SJTU have decided to jointly establish the USC-SJTU ICCI, taking our decade-long partnership to a new height. ICCI is aimed to become a leading innovator of teaching, research and social services in culture-related industries. It will offer the best of a truly global educational experience and cultivate individuals with technical skills, management expertise and innovative spirit. It also endeavors to grow into a research center of distinction, generating top-notch research outcomes of relevance to the practice and policy of the cultural industries of China and the world.
I invite you to explore this exciting opportunity and hope to welcome you soon to our community.
Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU)
The University of Southern California and Shanghai Jiao Tong University have enjoyed a longstanding relationship as academic partners. This Institute of Cultural and Creative Industry (ICCI) further strengthens the partnership between our world-class universities and deepens our ties as a global academic community. Bringing together our research and teaching resources, USC and SJTU will create a new generation of leaders with a global perspective and innovative capacity – leaders who strengthen the development of the rapidly expanding cultural and creative industries of China. And much like SJTU, USC has an expansive global alumni network. The combined alumni strength will be a unique resource for students at the Institute, who will find connections throughout the Pacific Rim.
