[photopress:mba_fudan_university.jpg,full,alignright]The Washington University-Fudan University EMBA Program is ranked as the 7th best international executive MBA program in the world and, for the second consecutive year, as the 1st program in China. This according to 2007 rankings announced by The Financial Times.
The program was among the first U.S.-Sino joint MBA programs in China when it was founded in 2002.
Designed to prepare Chinese managers for global executive positions, the program attracts about 75 % of its students from China.
Mahendra Gupta, dean of Olin Business School and Lu Xiongwen, professor and dean of the School of Management at Fudan University, attribute the program’s continued success to both partners’ commitment to excellence.
The Financial Times rankings are based on surveys of people who have been through the program conducted three years after graduation. The surveys include questions on satisfaction in career progress, salary percentage increase and aims achieved. The survey also measures other program attributes, such as diversity and the scholarly. Interesting that joint ventures once again claimed four of the top 10 slots in The Financial Times rankings.
