London Business School (LBS) and Fudan University's School of Management (FDSM) have jointly launched a Global Masters in Management (MiM) Double Business Degree.
Sir Andrew Likierman, Dean of London Business School, said, "This memorandum of understanding with Fudan is responding to a rising demand for talented people who understand how to do business in both the East and the West, and also demonstrates our commitment to working closely with Chinese corporate partners. The programme will give its graduates a 'two-world' mindset, combining direct exposure to China and the West. The balance of theory and practice will ensure students gain a head start in the competition for the world's best business jobs."
Professor Lu Xiongwen, Dean, FDSM, said in his speech at the signing ceremony that the collaboration between two strong and leading institutions combines the essence of management systems from the East and West. The double degree programme also integrates local practical experience with global vision to accommodate the demands of globalisation trends. He anticipates the programme will cultivate real elites with global vision in the business world.
Both institutions offer a strong, international background, unique education systems and rich resource networks. Participants will study at Fudan University and London Business School for one year, respectively, learning both first-class management concepts and practical commercial knowledge. Graduates will acquire master's degrees from both institutions.
