Fudan University is excited to open its doors to Chinese-speaking students in its home country and around the world who can benefit from access to their world class education.
Tapping into its prestigious faculty, Fudan will offer a range of courses beginning with “Big Data and Information Dissemination” taught by Professor Cheng Shian in Fudan’s School of Journalism.
