The agreement, which was signed by the deans of the two schools, François Ortalo-Magné and Lu Xiongwen, allows students admitted to the Masters in Finance (MiF) programmes at Fudan to first attend LBS’s Masters in Financial Analysis (MFA). Those admitted to the MFA will complete the one-year programme at LBS in London before returning to China to complete the second year of a MiF programme at Fudan Universities.
Those who successfully meet the requirements of both the LBS MFA and Fudan MiF programme will receive two degrees, one from each of their chosen institutions.
The agreement further cement the School’s presence in the Chinese market and reflect the UK’s position as a favoured destination for university education.
Commenting on the significance of the Progress Partnership Agreements, François Ortalo-Magné, Dean of LBS, said: “This partnership strengthens the ties between LBS and Fudan, and gives students the opportunity to study in London, one of the world’s largest financial markets.
“The move is a natural progression of the School’s offering in China and will further advance our graduates’ ability to have a profound impact in a global marketplace.”
