Fudan MBA ranked 34th in Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2019

SHANGHAI, Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fudan MBA ranked 34th in the world and No. 1 for the university based b-schools in mainland China in the newly released Global MBA Ranking 2019 by Financial Times. With continuous improvement in the ranking over 6 years, the program has maintained its position at the top 50 in the world for three consecutive years.

Fudan MBA tops the chart in five fields of the ranking. It held the top spot worldwide in salary percentage increase ranking, and shared the top glory in China in other four fields, including Value for Money, Career Progress, Aims Achieved, and Careers Service. The program also takes the top spot in mainland China in five ranking lists--research, alumni recommend, international faculty, career progress, and international course experience.

The ranking shows that Fudan MBA has reached a new level. This glorious achievement reflects its adherence to high standards and strict requirements, as well as its focus on innovation, practice and internationalization.

Fudan MBA is designed to cultivate young elites and future leaders with global perspectives and local insights. It encourages students "to take on social responsibilities and become future leaders", and also focuses on the sustainable development for students.

Through integrating the Western management concept with Chinese features, the program continuously innovates and improves its training system, and forms an all-round value system for learning. Centered on the leadership development of the students, the program also focuses on improving students' comprehensive qualities, providing a solid foundation for the students before entering the real business world.

Fudan MBA continues to innovate in five aspects: curriculum system, business practice, global platform, leadership improvement and lifelong development, helping students to achieve growth in five dimensions -- knowledge, ability, vision, resources and responsibility.

Fudan MBA has established six different tracks since 2015, including finance, marketing, innovation & entrepreneurship, e-commerce and big data, industry analysis and investment management, corporate decision-making and leadership. For the full-time international MBA program, a special course on corporate consulting and professional ability is offered to enable students to combine management theory with business practice and career development. In 2018, the program has offered more than 300 courses throughout the year, with an average course satisfaction of 9.5 points (out of 10 points).

The Fudan MBA has developed a diversified and multi-channel international communication model. Long-term, medium-term and short-term international exchanges are provided for students to enrich their overseas learning experience. 

Since 2005, the program has conducted the iLab project, which is required and carries credits, to encourage cooperation between students and enterprises. Through these business practices, students have enhanced their classroom learning by applying their knowledge to real business issues, together with their teamwork skills, negotiation and decision-making skills. As an external think tank, students can also help corporations to analyze their practical problems and provide solutions.

Over the years, in addition to the Local iLab established for Chinese companies, the program has also launched its Global iLab in collaboration with leading business schools and institutions such as Wharton Business School, MIT Sloan School of Management, University of Queensland Business School and the LISBON SBE; iLab also teams up with European government agencies like the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation Tekes to provide consulting services.

In 2018, School of Management at Fudan University signed a memorandum of cooperation with Sasin of Chulalongkorn University, which officially became the partner of the program's Global iLab. Now, iLab has established an international cooperation map across Asia, the Americas, Europe, and Oceania, and has been a bridge for communication between Chinese and foreign companies, enabling enterprises, students and schools to achieve a win-win situation and form a virtuous circle.
