About Shanghai 

Shanghai has grown exponentially in the last hundred years—from a colonial trading port to a massive international metropolis with a population of 24 million. Known for its fast-paced industry and cosmopolitan vibe, the city is intricately connected with the global flows of commodities and people. It also represents the enormous environmental, economic, and social challenges that are mirrored across China and around the world. Want to become immersed in a globally-minded population? Shanghai is your city.

PLEASE BE AWARE that most IFSA-Butler programs are "hybrid" programs, with some credits earned from IFSA-Butler University and some from the host university. IFSA issues a single Butler University transcript with all of your courses and grades, but If you take courses from both IFSA-Butler and the host school you will need transcripts from both schools in order to receive transfer credit for all of your courses.
