Fudan University has signed an agreement with the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists to provide anti-money laundering training in mainland China.

ACAMS and Fudan University will work together to provide a range of training including basic AML courses focusing on China's regulatory requirements and the study of global standards and leading practices in fighting money laundering and terrorist financing.

The global standards course will run until the students sit the examination to qualify for ACAMS's Certified Anti-Money Laundering diploma.

In addition to the newly established partnership with ACAMS, Fudan University has created an academic program, the Center for Anti-Money Laundering Studies, through which it is considering launching a degree and graduate programs in AML.

Shi Lei, an economics professor from Fudan University, told local media that the cooperation is part of China's efforts to strengthen anti-money laundering checks and monitor banks, financial institutions, and insurance companies to safeguard financial security.

Ted Weissberg, Group Executive of ACAMS, commented that ACAMS is very excited to partner with Fudan University to bring AML training to mainland China. He added that ACAMS's presence in Asia has been growing very quickly over the past two years, and they expect this agreement will accelerate that growth dramatically.

Established in 1905, Fudan University is a prestigious Chinese institution of higher learning based in Shanghai. The university is especially renowned in the areas of physical sciences, humanities, social sciences, and medicine.

ACAMS is an international membership organization committed to enhancing the knowledge and skills of AML professionals around the world. Currently, it has up to 10,000 members in 130 countries.
