The authors state that the Hungarian left is constantly attacking the Chinese institution of Fudan University in Budapest. First and foremost, as Ms. Gyurcsany indicated in an interview with an anti-government news port, they say they do not want the country to be a “Chinese colony”.
Fudan was criticized as being merely a collector of Chinese expansion and communist ideology. In contrast, the truth is that it is today the Faculties of Social Sciences in the universities of the Western world that propagate Marxism with the greatest enthusiasm, the authors point out, adding that it could be difficult for a communist ideology to propagate Marxism. Prevail.
Fudan was established more than 40 years before the Communists
Fudan was not established during the communist period, but more than forty years earlier, in 1905, even in imperial China, shortly before the fall of the last dynasty in 1912. Fudan did not come to Hungary for the first time in the Western world, it had established the university Has long been a wide network of contacts with Europe and America.

In Germany, Fudan works with five universities: Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt, Freie Universität in Berlin, Universität zu Köln in Cologne, Eberhard Karls Universität in Tübingen, and finally the University of Konstanz. In Austria, Salzburg Business College (SMBS) is a partner institution of Fudan, as there is an exchange program within the MBA program.
The Fudan-Goethe Collaboration consists of two types of exchange programs and a joint four-week summer university. The four-week program also includes Cologne. Its topics are: Chinese society and politics, Chinese history and culture, Chinese business and economics, and the Chinese language. This is an example of “soft power” in China.

In Tübingen, a joint program of the Fudan-Tübingen Science Fair will take place annually from 2021, in alternative locations. In the case of Constance, since 2005 the two universities have held a joint community symposium on different legal topics in different locations.
Fudan in Scandinavia
Fudan established the North Center in Shanghai in 1995,
Which has since collaborated with 24 Scandinavian universities: five Danish, six Finnish, Icelandic, six Norwegian and six Swedish. Member universities can order customized courses in Shanghai or send 3-3 students for two summer courses; Additionally, they pay research positions in Shanghai for Scandinavian lecturers. On the Shanghai campus, you can study “Northern Studies”, which is held every year by another Scandinavian university.
In 1996, the Fudan School of Management established the Business School in Norway, which is run jointly with BI Norwegian Business School, the second largest business school in Europe, and Inaugurated by the then Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland. Also here, the two universities hold a joint MBA course.

So global higher education and scientific cooperation in the globalized world also clearly extend to Chinese universities, including Fudan – why might it be any different? In light of all this, it is worth forming an opinion about Fudan’s plans in Hungary, the Mandiner authors write.
