Partnership Extends Program Footprint to China
In 2002, Washington University entered a partnership with Fudan University in Shanghai, a collaboration that was the first management education joint venture in China.
Since then, Olin’s Executive MBA program in Shanghai has prepared Chinese executives – and senior-level professionals from other countries – for global leadership. The Financial Times ranked the program No. 7 worldwide in 2014.
Like Olin’s U.S. Executive MBA programs, the Shanghai program provides a curriculum focused on leadership development, applied research, immediate skills application, and career management. Courses are co-taught by Olin and Fudan School of Management faculty members in English. Your program professors and peers are experienced business professionals, which creates a rich environment for learning and networking.
Recognition and accreditation
Fudan University was founded in 1905. Through the years, it developed an international reputation for exceptional scholarship and research. In 1991, the university was one of the first schools in China to offer an MBA degree.
Olin’s Executive MBA program is accredited by AACSB (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) International. Less than 5 percent of the world’s business schools have earned the distinction. The degree also is recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education. Graduates receive a certificate from Fudan University’s School of Management, demonstrating they are alumni of one of China’s top schools.
