On June 26, 1992, a group of professors from Shanghai Jiaotong University, Peking University and Tsinghua University, three of the leading universities in China, initiated the notion of establishing a university with funding from the private sector. Sanda University was thus founded on August 11, 1992.It was the first full-time private university offering programs leading to accredited certificates and diplomas in the country, and on March 6, 2002, with the official ratification of the Chinese Ministry of Education, it became, under the supervision of Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, the first full-time private comprehensive university providing undergraduate courses in China. In pursuance to an ordinance promulgated by the Ministry of Education in 2002, Sanda University changed its official name to Shanghai Sanda Institute, although the name Sanda University is still being widely used.


The main campus is on a 26.8 hectare site in Pudong, in the south of Shanghai. A second campus, known as Guangbiao Institute, was established in 2002 and is located in Jiashan County, Zhejiang province. It is named after Cao Guangbiao, one of the major donors to Sanda.
