Last year, the China Auto Talents Society and Shanghai International Automobile City (Group) signed a strategic cooperation agreement regarding the "China-France automobile innovation village" with France Business School (FBS).

Now, FBS Shanghai campus has officially settled in the Shanghai automobile exhibition center in Anting, Shanghai’s Jiading district. A total of 140 students came to Jiading this September to study and live here for 4 to 12 months.

FBS is composed of four old business schools. At present, with nine campuses and more than 10,000 students, it is the largest business school in France. After FBS signed an agreement with the two Chinese partners, the project was praised and supported by French enterprises. The number of students who applied to study in Jiading also surged from 20 in 2013 to nearly 140 this year.

Jiading supported the construction of FBS by providing a two-year rent free policy, according to Zhang Junsong, FBS’s senior project manager.

“We will take advantage of the resources of the school headquarters in Paris to make contributions to Jiading, and build a China-France communication center for automobile exchange and cooperation,” said Zhang.

Jiading and FBS will also continue to cooperate on various fields including digital management tourism management and the cultural industry.
