The Center for Chinese Financial Development and Reform strives to contribute to policy discussion in the Chinese financial development and reform. Funding of this center is generated from the financial surplus of the self-financed MBA Program in Finance in collaboration with Tsinghua University.
The Center supports both teaching and research excellence to further strengthen and enhance the program content. High quality research which combines theories in the East and the West incorporated with the Chinese practice will be conducted to address and tackle real problems in the business world.
The Center also nurtures young researchers by setting up in Shenzhen an incubator program where young mainland Chinese scholars are nominated and invited to collaborate with our Faculty members on various research initiatives.
