The Washington University-Fudan University Executive MBA (EMBA) program in Shanghai is ranked at #5 in the 2016 Financial Times survey of the top 100 EMBA programs in the world. Among EMBA programs offered in mainland China, the WashU-Fudan program is ranked #2. The new rankings were released Monday, October 17.
The Financial Times survey is based on a wide range of criteria, with a particular focus on student career achievement. Our graduates report salary increases of 49% according to the new 2016 FT survey, which moved our ranking in that category up to #2 from #4 in the global ranking. Another significant category reflects the fact that candidates for the WashU-Fudan EMBA are among the most highly experienced and accomplished executives, moving to #6 from #11 on the global scale of work experience.
“The Washington University-Fudan EMBA program continues to attract a diverse cohort of students each year from multinational companies based in China and throughout Asia,” said Kurt Dirks, Interim Dean of Olin Business School. “We are extremely proud of our partnership with Fudan. Our world-class faculty is dedicated to preparing global leaders who meet the challenges of the 21st century.”
Washington University was one of the first western schools to partner with a Chinese university and introduce executive education to the Asian market in 2002. Based on a rigorous and leadership-focused curriculum, the WashU-Fudan program is taught by members of the Olin and Fudan faculties in Shanghai. In addition to St. Louis and Shanghai, Olin offers Executive MBA programs in Denver, Kansas City, and Mumbai in partnership with IIT Bombay Shailesh J. Mehta School of Management.
