Welcome to the MSc in Economics programme at Shenzhen Finance Institute (SFI)!

Our programme prepares students for prominent professional careers in industry and government, or further study for the Ph.D. degree. To achieve this goal, we combine globally well-known academic scholars and senior industrial practitioners from prestigious multinational companies to teach our master's programme. For instance, we invite executive members from global financial companies and senior government officials as our programme mentors, who both teach classes and work with our students on real-life projects after the class.

In addition, we collaborate with the top universities and research institutions to expose our students to the cutting-edge economic research. For instance, we have co-organized conferences with the universities such as Princeton, the international organizations such as the IMF and the Asian Development Bank Institute, and the central banks such as the People's Bank of China and the Federal Reserve. In particular, the partnership masters program1 with the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers students a unique opportunity of gaining international education at a globally famous Economics program and the on-site experience of understanding Chinese economy and China's financial markets at one of the most dynamic economic and financial centers in China.

Our programme emphasizes strong quantitative skills along with a command of microeconomic and macroeconomic theory. These skills are highly demanded by today's job market and top Ph.D. programmes in the world. Our programme's courses on Chinese economic and financial markets help students obtain competitive advantages for jobs and internship opportunities in the great China area. Our offered courses also evolve with the latest industrial development and job market demand.

We are very proud of our programme's outstanding faculty, Industry mentor team, strong ties with local business leaders and our brilliant students. With our joint efforts, we can surely build our programme into one of the strongest in the greater China region. We welcome you to join this great venture!
