Established as a division of The Johns Hopkins University in 1950, The Paul H.

As a highly selective graduate institution with a distinguished faculty, SAIS consistently ranks as one of the top schools of international relations in the world.

About 190 students study at the Bologna Center in Italy while about 140 students attend the Hopkins-Nanjing Center in China.
