«Fudan University (FDSM) is one of the top universities in China. Its School of Management ranks among the top-100 business schools globally, and has been a nursery for talent for local and multinational corporates. Partnering with FDSM not only reinforces our commitment to the Mainland, but is also an integral part of our strategy for nurturing talent in China,» UBS Group Country Head and President, Eugene Qian, said.

The UBS-Fudan Finance Certificate Program will address the latest operational trends, including financial product structuring and quantitative analysis, in investment banking, and in wealth and asset management. Students will have direct access to senior management from UBS China and other business units and functions to gain industry insight and practical experience.

«The UBS-Fudan Finance Certificate Program allows students to learn and gain practical insight from a world-leading financial institution. Through close cooperation between the university and leading financial institutions, FDSM seeks to cultivate high-quality talent to support the consolidation of Shanghai as an international financial center,» added the Dean of FDSM, Professor Xiongwen Lu.

In response to the increasing demand for financial talent to support UBS's business growth in China, UBS recently opened the Shanghai campus of the UBS Business University. The campus will provide training for employees new to the firm and the industry, as well as on-going professional development to existing staff. The UBS Business University expects to open a campus in Beijing by early 2017.
