Since 2002, the Washington University-Fudan University Executive MBA Program has been preparing China’s best international executives for global leadership positions. Taught entirely in English and targeted to Chinese and expatriate executives in Greater Asia, the program provides an intensive personal development and growth experience. As we celebrate our 10th year, we are proud to say the program has been ranked as one of the best in Mainland China by the Financial Times of London since 2006.
Students enrolled in this 18-month program attend courses once per month at the School of Management at Fudan University in Shanghai. The program culminates with a two-week capstone session at Washington University's Charles F. Knight Executive Education and Conference Center in St. Louis.
The program closely matches Olin’s Executive MBA in St. Louis, using the same faculty and a similar curriculum. It also awards the same AACSB-accredited MBA degree from Washington University in St. Louis. Because it is a joint educational venture with the School of Management at Fudan University, it offers two additional benefits—the degree is recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education and students receive a certificate from the School of Management that makes them full-fledged alumni of one of China's top universities.
Founded in 1905, Fudan University is one of the most prestigious universities in China, with an international reputation for excellence in academic activities and scientific research.
In 1991, the School of Management at Fudan University became one of the first Chinese universities to provide an MBA degree. Today, 8,000 of its MBA and Executive MBA graduates are helping lead China's economic development. The school is committed to developing the management talent that China and the world need to meet rapid changes in the new era.
