Shanghai Customs College
Shanghai Customs College (SCC) was founded in 1953 to provide training in Customs technique and management to the staff of the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China. In March 2007, with the approval of the Ministry of Education, the SCC became an institution of higher learning and opened its doors to students from outside of Customs. Today, the SCC trains middle and senior level Customs officials as well as Customs and trade professionals, offering them knowledge updates and advanced courses.
Over the past few years, the SCC has been developing an internationalization strategy, which integrates an intercultural, global dimension into a university’s mission, objectives and actions. This required the adoption of international standards related to the knowledge requirements for Customs officers, encouraging and promoting research on international trade topics, implementing student and teacher exchange programmes, and organizing field visits abroad.
