About EMA-EMA at Fudan
What is EMA in SOE at Fudan?


Launched in 2007 and 2012 respectively, the EMA Chinese Economy Program and the EMA Finance Program are English-taught full-time master’s degree programs designed for international students who wish to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of China in the fields of economics, finance, business and national policies. Supported by SOE’s well-established discipline of economics, its strong education and research background, and its excellent academic atmosphere, these two programs provide the students with a solid platform to study a wide range of courses related to Chinese economy and finance. Upon graduation, students leave Fudan not only with a master’s degree, but also the potential for a successful career in China or at home.

Starting from fall 2022 semester, the EMA programs are transformed to offer professional masters’ degrees, which are, Master of Finance (MF) and Master of International Business (MIB). These two new programs are practice oriented and will better prepare students for the work places after graduation.

We will offer featured courses such as Chinese Economy, Financial Institutions and Markets, Development Economics, International Finance, Money and Banking, Corporate Finance Theory and Practice, Venture Capital & IPO & Merger & Acquisition, Enterprise Internationalization, International Trade Theory and Practice, Theory and Practice of Financial Derivative. Students also have the opportunity to take an internship up to 6 months in the field of business or finance.
