Fudan's IMBA students benefit from going abroad

AS the new semester begins, many second-year full-time IMBA students at Fudan University School of Management (FDSM) will start a one-term exchange at world-renowned business schools such as NYU Stern School of Business, UCLA Anderson School of Management, London Business School, Emory University and others.

FDSM International Exchange Program participants spend a few weeks or months studying abroad, developing friendships and business networks, all while learning about international management and earning credit toward the Fudan MBA program.

FDSM has one of the largest international exchange programs in China. Each year more than 80 Fudan MBA students spend one or two semesters at the top business schools around the world.

Approximately 40 percent of second-year full-time IMBAs will choose to participate in the exchange program. Meanwhile, the program hosts a similar number of international students from partner schools. This makes the Fudan IMBA classroom a global village.

Fudan's commitment to global engagement prepares students for every challenge in the international business environment.

The program is an opportunity for MBA students to expand their horizons and experience the global marketplace first-hand. By studying abroad, students can learn the language of global business, engage in complex interconnected global issues and become an empowered global citizen.

One of the program's students, Gong Yan, who went to New York University, said the experience goes beyond the classroom.

"New York sets the stage for any dreamer to roam here. Don't hesitate to join a student club. You'll enjoy the benefits of socializing with second years and alumni, attending corporate presentations and yearly forums, and thus build new business networks."

The International Exchange Program also provides a unique opportunity for MBA students to immerse themselves in a new academic and social culture, and to enhance their ability to think and learn in a multicultural and international business environment.

"My study period at UCLA was an amazing academic and cultural experience, which helped me better understand the American business climate and culture," said Tirdad, another IMBA student.

Founded in 1996, this full-time English program collaborates with the MIT Sloan School of Management in the fields of curriculum development, faculty training and student exchange.
