Tongji-MF Brochure (2014)

With the development of modern economics, finance has become a most primary and most active part in applied economics. Meanwhile, the rapid growth and integration of economy and finance in Yangtz River Delta regions, the drive of Shanghai International Financial Center Construction and the exploration of Free Trade Zone (Shanghai) have created an increasingly high demand for high-level and practice-oriented financial elites. To heal the structural gap between the social demand and Chinese traditional high education which stresses academic researches, Tongji University has launched the “Elite Financial Engineers Project”. As the soul of the project, Tongji Master of Finance (Professional) Program is committed to the supply of trained professional financial elites armed with sound theoretical foundation, practical insights and efficient methodologies. The program is jointly operated by two units, the School of Economics and Management and the Department of Mathematics.
