An exciting Mainland learning opportunity is now available for you!


China Business and Economics Programme (December 2017) will be organised at Fudan University, Shanghai from December 24, 2017 – January 3, 2018.


About the Programme

China Business and Economics Programme (December 2017) is supported by the Ministry of Education of Mainland China. It is a credit-bearing study programme open to all FBE students. The programme aims to enhance students’ understanding of China business and economy by providing first-hand experience through living and learning in Shanghai.


Participants will enroll in a 6-credit HKU course as taught by a HKU lecturer. Aside from formal lectures which will be conducted in Fudan University, the programme includes site visits to leading enterprises of industries such as finance, tourism, manufacturing, IT and creative industries. There will also be guest talks by alumni, scholars and business leaders. Similar as other HKU courses, students are required to complete the course work as assigned by the lecturer, group projects, presentations and final examination in order to receive a grade as well as credits. This course will be counted as free elective which will be used to fulfill part of your graduation requirements.


We believe that direct experience in the major business center of the fastest growing economy in the world will be beneficial to your learning and career. You are strongly encouraged to grab this valuable opportunity to enrich your knowledge and understanding of business in China.
