L’ICD, a french business school for the Chinese business market

ICD decided to locate its Asian offshore site in Shanghai at Fudan University, the city’s most prestigious higher education institution. This Chinese university is ranked third nationally and 19th on the Asian continent. It is an academically selective university, which will naturally add extra value to your qualifications.

A highly specialized Franco-Chinese course

During their studies at ICD, students can choose to apply for a place on the Franco-Chinese course. This option involves several stages.

Chinese language classes in years 1 & 2

10 hours of weekly Chinese language classes are taught from the start of the programme of study.

In addition to this, students take intercultural courses that will help them fit into a culture that is completely new for the majority of them.

Two years of immersion in China

Students spend years 3 and 4 studying on the Shanghai campus.

This period abroad enables them to further their intercultural knowledge of China and their Chinese language skills.  At the end of year 4, students will receive a certificate of study from Fudan University.

A final year of specialist studies in France

With 2 years of study abroad experience in China behind them, students return to France to follow their 5th and final year of studies.


An amazing experience

"The Franco-Chinese course (FCC) was an amazing experience: I learned a lot and came back more mature. The kindness of the Chinese people, the modernity of Shanghai and the diversity of the landscape make China a captivating destination. FCC is a demanding programme but above all a perfect way to immerse yourself in the Chinese culture. China is a way of doing business in its own right, with its own rules that should not be overlooked. Thanks to the knowledge acquired on the ground and taught by excellent professors, everything becomes clearer! Thanks to the intensive Chinese language training, the practice of English and the skills developed throughout the course, you come out of it equipped for success. Today, with such a background, I'm very much in demand by companies and I can't wait to find my dream job!"
