Programme: Fudan University SOE: Online Summer School

Partner Institution: Fudan University

Period: June 6 - July 31, 2020


Despite the current COVID-19 situation, the summer school still held successfully online, which is quite impressive.


In the marketing class, the professor successfully generated a discussion vibe and encouraged us to participate in the discussion. Also, he gave a clear illustration and many Chinese brand examples, which makes it easy to understand, given that all these brands are familiar and popular in mainland China.


As for the Chinese modern economy, the professor was very enthusiastic, and her speech was passionate. She illustrated both history and the current trend of China, which left me a strong impression as she stated the correlation between history and modern macroeconomic policy. Some policies or social values are deeply rooted in the long history of China. As for the group project, I cooperated with students from Hong Kong, Canada, Taiwan, and Macau, which is an exciting experience considering our different backgrounds.


In conclusion, I really learned a lot, and it is a pity that I couldn’t get to the campus to meet with my groupmates and tutors.
