The Fund for American Studies, in partnership with George Mason University and the University of Hong Kong, is pleased to announce the 16th annual Asia Institute for Political Economy (AIPE) taking place from July 7 – 28, 2018.
AIPE, based in Hong Kong, offers a unique opportunity for students from Asia and the United States to explore fundamental issues related to political economy and delve into the issues facing their countries. As a financial center of Asia, Hong Kong is the perfect setting to bring together students to discuss these topics. Students engage in a rigorous academic course and participate in stimulating lectures given by the region’s most esteemed experts. The combination of educational, cultural, and social exchange allows participants to explore challenging ideas, form life-long friendships, and form cross-border networks that will greatly benefit their educational and professional development.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn 3 undergraduate credits from George Mason University. They will also join a network of over 17,000 TFAS alumni who live and work in some of the world’s most exciting cities. Graduates of our programs are able to use this vast network to opens doors that lead to life changing opportunities in various corners of the world.
