Dear students and colleagues,

 

We cordially invite you to lecture #3 of the BCCN/LMRG's monthly online series “China – The New Science Superpower?”:

 

Ascent of Chinese Universities in World Rankings—Global Ambitions, Local Governance?

 

Speaker: Liang Ma, Renmin University of China

 

Online via Zoom. Please register for the event here: https://zoom.us/j/95306568300?pwd=WE9kdVp0YUluOVFPdkR2eHlJV2NOUT09 

 

Chinese elite universities compete with world-class universities in dominant world rankings, and the past two decades have seen their ratings soar in these league tables. World rankings have been widely used in Chinese universities’ strategy formation, talent acquisition, and faculty recruitment, but the government aims to mitigate the consequences of rankings to university governance and develop top universities with Chinese characteristics. This talk will review the development of international and domestic university rankings and their enduring roles in shaping the autonomy of Chinese universities by using quantitative analyses and case studies.

 

Liang Ma is a Professor at the School of Public Administration and Policy and Research Fellow at the National Academy for Development and Strategy, Renmin University of China. He earned his doctorate from Xi’an Jiaotong University, China. Before joining RUC, he was a Senior Research Fellow at the Nanyang Centre for Public Administration, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He is the Co-Editor of the International Journal of Public Administration and an Associate Editor of the Chinese Public Administration Review. He is the Chair-Elect of the Section of Chinese Public Administration (SCPA), the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA).
