William Kirby – The Rise of China in the World of Universities

May 12 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

William Kirby

Speaker: William C. Kirby, Spangler Family Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School; T. M. Chang Professor of China Studies, Harvard University.

German universities defined academic excellence in the 19th century. American universities came to set global standards in the 20th century. What, then, are the prospects for China to lead the world of universities in the 21st century?

This talk, based on Professor Kirby’s forthcoming book, The World of Universities, will take us on a global tour: from Berlin to Boston to Berkeley to Beijing and beyond. We will conclude with the question: Can Harvard still lead?
