China Journal: Fudan University

“My first day was Monday, ” said Paul Shao, the new Managing Director of Olin’s EMBA program in Shanghai at Fudan University.  Shao introduced himself at the beginning of our Friday classroom session at Fudan University, which is located in the Yangpu District, a northern suburb of Shanghai. Shao is a graduate of the EMBA Shanghai program having completed his degree with Class 11 in 2013.

Jim Little, who taught EMBA 43 Macroeconomics last spring, joined the class for a discussion of consumer behavior in Shanghai. He was in Shanghai teaching as part of the partnership for Executive education established between Washington University and Fudan University in 2002.

A walking tour of the campus revealed numerous landmarks, including the campus’s signature Guang Ha Building, a much larger than life President Mao statue, as well as picturesque campus architecture and garden decor in the Yan Garden.

    Nice share and visuals. The Mao statue makes even Robb-Davon Butler look small – a tough task indeed!
