By leveraging Yale’s wealth of resources as a global research university and its historically strong ties to China, the center aims to further constructive dialogue about pressing issues and the forthright exchange of ideas and knowledge among decision makers and thought leaders.

Yale Center Beijing opened in the fall of 2014. It is managed by the School of Management on behalf of Yale University and advances Yale’s fundamental dedication to developing leaders from all sectors of society and all regions of the globe.

The center, which is housed in a 16,500-square-foot space in the Chaoyang District of Beijing, enables the University to expand existing activities and form new partnerships with organizations in China. It supports research and study from each of the University’s schools and divisions and serves as a gathering place for alumni from throughout Asia.

Since its inauguration by President Peter Salovey, Yale Center Beijing has curated a diverse and substantive programming schedule with hundreds of events that engage a wide range of Yale entities as well as friends and alumni of the University and new audiences in Beijing. The center has established itself as one of the most active foreign university centers in China and as a valuable platform for thought leaders to exchange views on critical issues across sectors
