To gain unique perspectives on business within and with China, come study in Fudan University's global MBA program. Sit alongside local and international students as you engage in coursework distinct from, yet complementary to, classes taken in your home UC campus program.
Then get out onto the streets of Shanghai and witness the rapidly changing environment of what many term China's future financial hub with the global business and world markets. You will return enriched and invigorated by what you have learned, yet still connected to those you meet during this term overseas.
Students attend classes with host country students.
