Shenzhen Finance Institute (SFI) was established by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen (CUHK-Shenzhen) with the support of Shenzhen. We aim to satisfy academia and industries worldwide by building a platform with a "global vision and Chinese focus" for research and communication, and tackle opportunities and challenges brought by the upcoming changes in the world's financial and economic structures. SFI is committed to nurturing high-end talents in finance and economics, conducting high-level research, establishing a global exchange platform, and functioning as a state-of-the-art think-tank. Our mission and vision are articulated below:


1 Nurture high-end talents: SFI collaborates with CUHK-Shenzhen to offer several Master's degree programs in the areas of economics, finance and management, full-time and part-time, as well as non-degree executive education programs.


2 Conduct high level research: SFI has established a growing list of research centers and collaborated with universities, policy and financial institutions from home and abroad to set up postdoctoral research programs.
