UBS, Fudan University launch finance certificate and scholarship program

UBS and Shanghai’s Fudan University launched a finance certificate and scholarship program yesterday to enhance the students’ professional knowledge and practical skills, and provide them with international insight.

The UBS-Fudan Finance Certificate and Scholarship is aimed primarily at master's students majoring in Financial Engineering and Financial Management, and MBAs, but is also available to top third-year undergraduates. Participants completing the program will have priority for UBS China's summer internship and graduate talent programs. In addition, based on performance, outstanding students will qualify for the UBS Scholarship.

"Fudan University is one of the top universities in China. Its School of Management ranks among the top-100 business schools globally, and has been a nursery for talent for local and multinational corporates. Partnering with FDSM not only reinforces our commitment to the Mainland, but is also an integral part of our strategy for nurturing talent in China," said Eugene Qian, UBS Group Country Head and President.

The UBS-Fudan Finance Certificate Program will address the latest operational trends, including financial product structuring and quantitative analysis, in investment banking, and in wealth and asset management. Students will have direct access to senior management from UBS China and other business units and functions to gain industry insight and practical experience.

"The key to ensuring Shanghai remains an international financial center is the development of a sustainable pipeline of high-quality talent that meets international standards and is capable of supporting China's transition and growth. The UBS-Fudan Finance Certificate Program allows students to learn and gain practical insight from a world-leading financial institution. Through close cooperation between the university and leading financial institutions, FDSM seeks to cultivate high-quality talent to support the consolidation of Shanghai as an international financial center," said Professor Lu Xiongwen, Dean of FDSM.

"UBS is committed to supporting the local communities in which it operates.  The support of education and talent development is in line with our mission to promote sustainability in the industry and in society more generally," added Qian.

In response to the increasing demand for financial talent to support UBS's business growth in China, UBS recently opened the Shanghai campus of the UBS Business University. The campus will provide training for employees new to the firm and the industry, as well as on-going professional development to existing staff. The UBS Business University expects to open a campus in Beijing by early 2017.
