Welcome NYU Wagner, Our Newest Affiliate
We would like to extend a warm welcome to the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service at New York University. Established in 1938, the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service offers advanced programs leading to the professional degrees of MPA in Public and Nonprofit Management & Policy, MPA in Health Policy & Management, and Master of Urban Planning.
Of the school, Dean Ellen Schall states: "Students come to NYU Wagner seeking to transform their personal commitment into public service leadership. Our vision of public service leadership is not a still-life snapshot but a fast-moving, reel-to-reel frame. The impact of public service work by NYU Wagner students will transform the communities they serve and the work they do. We invite you to learn more about Wagner by exploring our website."

APSIA in Asia
Asia was again part of the APSIA Fall recruiting schedule. APSIA held admissions fairs in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Bangkok from September 20-24th. Fourteen APSIA Schools were represented at the fairs.
In Shanghai, APSIA hosted, in cooperation with Swissnex China, an alumni reception for alumni and other guests of our visiting member schools. We had a great turnout with approximately 60 people attending the reception representing a variety of nationalities and career sectors.
In addition to the general APSIA fair in Shanghai, Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s School of International and Public Affairs also warmly welcomed the representatives of our member schools to the School. We had the opportunity to learn more about the School, which offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees, from Dean HU Wei and Associate Dean PENG Bo, as well as meet and speak with their students about graduate studies at APSIA member schools.
While in Hong Kong for the APSIA fair, the Macau Tertiary Education Services Office hosted our group for an afternoon. The visit began with a lunch with representatives of the ten higher education institutions in Macau. Following lunch, the University of Macau hosted an information session and fair for its students.
