“I chose Wash-U/Fudan EMBA program for one obvious reason: its global perspective blended with local insights. Being one of the most recognized Chinese consumer brands worldwide, Tsingtao Beer sees the challenges of growing in the ever-complicating overseas markets while fortifying the domestic China market. I joined the program in a hope that it will sharpen my knowledge in strategic thinking and supply chain, marketing management, and cross-culture team leading. The next 18 months, to my most satisfaction, had been all about quenching my cravings in these areas. The professor bring in knowledge, then the classmates amplify it with their unique experiences and experiences. My background with a China based company while brands being marketed and distributed globally resonates incredibly well with those who work with MNCs. I believe as the globalization deepens in every possible way, Chinese brands like Tsingtao Beer will keep leveraging best global practices, and their leaders will better understand how to lead with common management language world-wide.”

"Having a Dutch and an Italian background and now residing and working in USA, I could have earned an EMBA in any elite university in Europe or the USA. However, I opted to travel every month to Shanghai for my EMBA studies because I believe that to fully understand the Chinese emerging market, in order to fully understand the Chinese emerging market; It is important to work with high caliber Chinese Directors, to analyze and discuss how to solve the complex challenges of today.
For these particular reasons, I was keen to find the right program that would meet the criteria while giving me a world class EMBA and stimulating my thinking process. The Washington University-Fudan University EMBA Program offered all of these aspects, and has delivered much more than what I was expecting. To say the least, the program has been ideal for me as a student, professional and person, and has increased my global business experience and raised it to a completely different level. I simply don’t believe that I could have achieved all of this through an EMBA program in Europe or in the US.”

"The experience sharing among the classmates has been the most meaningful part of the program for me. Its small team structure is organized around each teammate’s professional background. Coming from the sales and marketing field, I find it very refreshing to hear the perspectives of other functional executives to broaden my scope of strategic thinking. If I have only one word to describe the student profile of this program it would be “glocal,” which is a mix of the words global and local. The program has the right mix of global and local directors to learn from each other."

“I chose the Washington University-Fudan University EMBA program because its positioning---the best-trained and best-connected general managers in China---matched well with my personal objectives. I also wanted to be part of a program that is here to stay in China. Washington University is a top school in the US and Fudan University is a top school in China. Together they have what it takes to succeed. I know that in five years I won’t have to regret choosing the program because it has ceased to operate or hasn’t achieved its potential. They put a great deal of effort into managing their joint venture, carefully selecting great students and faculty members, and then creating learning and networking opportunities for the students and alumni.”
