NAEA has been engaged in building international platform for Chinese university leaders. A number of inter-institutional cooperative relations or academic ties with prestigious universities and education institutions from over 20 countries and regions have been established in recent years. NAEA is considered a very important Lecture Podium for renowned international university leaders, who are invited to give lectures and share insights with their Chinese counterparts each year. Some of them have become NAEA Honorary Professors. Besides this, NAEA also organizes international leadership program for university leaders both home and abroad.
