Fudan University, located in Shanghai, is one of the most prestigious and selective universities in China. It is a C9 League university and a Chinese Ministry of Education Class A Double First Class University, its institutional predecessor was founded in 1905, shortly before the end of China's imperial Qing dynasty. Fudan is now composed of four campuses in Shanghai – Handan, Fenglin and Jiangwan – which share the same central administration. Fudan University romanized as Fuh Tan, was founded as Fudan Public School in 1905, by Father Ma Xiangbo SJ, who had resigned from Aurora University which he co-founded two years prior; the two Chinese characters Fu and Dan, meaning both " day after day" and "Aurora Revived", were chosen by Father Ma, on the recommendation of Yu Youren, from the Confucian Classic Shangshu Dazhuan: "Itinerant as the twilight, sun glows and moon luminesces". In 1911 during the Xinhai Revolution the college was taken up as the headquarters of the Guangfu Army and closed down for one year.
The university motto comes from Analects Book 19.6, which means "to learn extensively and adhere to aspirations, to inquire earnestly and reflect with self application". In 1917, Fudan Public School became a private university named the Private Fudan University, had a middle school and university-preparatory school. In 1929, Fudan adjusted its departments, expanded to include the Journalism Department, Municipals Department, Law Department and Education Department, totalling 17 departments devoted to Arts, Science and Business.

On 25 December 1941, the First Meeting of Fifth Conference of the Highest Executive Authority of the National Government of the Republic of China voted to change Fudan University to a public university with Wu Nanxuan as its president. Fudan University became National Fudan University. After the end of World War II, it moved back to Shanghai.
After the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, Fudan lost its "National" appellation and became Fudan University to reflect the fact that all universities under the new socialist state would be public. Fudan was the first university to be adjusted by the new government in 1952 and modeled on Soviet education; the original departments were changed, Arts and Science departments from at least ten other universities in eastern China were added.

Lujiazui known as Lokatse from its pronunciation in Shanghainese, is a locality in Shanghai, a peninsula formed by a bend in the Huangpu River. Since the early 1990s, Lujiazui has been developed as a new financial district of Shanghai; the decision to earmark Lujiazui for this purpose reflects its location: it is located on the east side of the Huangpu River in Pudong, sits directly across the river from the old financial and business district of the Bund. Lujiazui is a national-level development zone designated by the government. In 2005, the State Council reaffirmed the positioning of the 31.78 km2 Lujiazui area as the only finance and trade zone among the 185 state-level development zones in mainland China. Lujiazui is located in the Pudong New District on the eastern bank of Huangpu River, it forms a peninsula on a bend of the Huangpu River. The importance of Lujiazui stems from the fact that it lies directly across the river from the Bund, the old financial and business district of Shanghai, just south of the confluence of the Suzhou Creek with the Huangpu River.
Until the 1980s, Lujiazui was a low-built area, featuring residential houses and factories. Following the allocation of Lujiazui as a special investment zone in 1992, the development of Lujiazui's skyline begun; this was driven by Chinese state owned enterprises investing and developing the property within the area, with the inaugural landmark, the Oriental Pearl Tower, being completed in 1994. There are more than 30 buildings over 25 stories high with commerce as their leading function, over 504 domestic and foreign financial and insurance corporations located in Lujiazui; the success of Lujiazui in the past 20 years has fueled tourism and business related travel to Shanghai. Pictures of the Lujiazui skyline dominate Shanghai tourism materials, there are 5 five-star hotels in the area, providing 2,443 rooms, three more five-star hotels are expected in the area in the coming years, adding more than 1,200 luxury units. Landmark buildings in Lujiazui include: Oriental Pearl Tower Jin Mao Building Shanghai World Financial Center Super Brand Mall Shanghai IFC Bank of China Tower Shanghai Tower By water, Lujiazui is linked to the rest of central Shanghai by ferry services from two wharves, located at the northern and southern ends of the area respectively.
At the southern end, the Dongchang Road ferry terminal provides river-crossing services across the Huangpu River to central and southern central Shanghai. The most popular ferry service for tourists connects Dongchang Road wharf with Jinling East wharf, located on the Bund. At the north end, the Xichang Inn wharf provides river-crossing services across the Huangpu River to northern central Shanghai; the former Lujiazui ferry wharf, once part of the most popular river crossing in Shanghai, was closed in 1999, with its wharf structure now used as a waterfront seating area. By road, Lujiazui is connected to the rest of central Shanghai by the Yan'an East Road Tunnel, linking the southern end of the Bund with the centre of Lujiazui. Further away from the centre of Lujiazui, the Renmin Road Tunnel and Fuxing East Road Tunnel link southern Lujiazui with southern central Shanghai, while Xinjian Road Tunnel and Dalian Road Tunnel link northern Lujiazui with northern central Shanghai. By metro, Lujiazui is served by Lujiazui station, on Shanghai Metro Line 2.
