Intro of SEM
Our goal is to encourage and stimulate the innate curiosity of every ShanghaitTech
student. Our coursework will promote creativity and creative confidence; we will teach
critical-thinking and skills which leads to learning how to innovate. Our classes will
combine material from a wide variety of disciplines. We will use design-thinking, the
arts, and other fields as our tools. For those who are interested in entrepreneurship,
our courses will provide hands on learning about spotting business opportunities and
the basics of entrepreneurial finance and operations.
We will regularly sponsor activities with leading members of the Venture Capital
community (both Chinese and international), entrepreneurs (including scientists who
also teach at universities), lawyer, and representatives from large corporations to
provide students with mentors and internship opportunities.
Our activities will also seek to instill a sense of social responsibility. We will ask our
students to devote their energies to doing good and doing well-looking towards
entrepreneurial enterprise which help resolve some of society's most challenging
problems such as caring for the elderly, urban congestion, education, etc.
All of classes are small (20 to 30 students) with a high-degree of experiential learning.
We don't have lecture classes only discussion, interaction and practice of the skills
we are trying to teach. Our professors come from all over the world including
professors who have taught at UC Berkeley, Harvard, and Stanford. [
Every student who enters ShanghaiTech will leave with core skills and equipped with
the ability torealize his or her own dreams-whether your goal is be a Nobel Prize
winning scientist, an entrepreneur, or a civil servant.
We look forward to seeing you in our classes.
