The Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE), founded in 1917, is a top-ranked, world-renowned research university. As the first financial university in China, SUFE has developed its own spirit over the years. SUFE places much emphasis on being industrious and making contributions to society. In 2000, the university became subordinate to the Ministry of Education and it is now jointly developed by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Finance and the Shanghai Municipal People's Government. SUFE has been selected as one of the key universities in China’s “211 Project”, a national state-sponsored program to foster the development of outstanding Chinese universities. 

After generations of hard work and unremitting efforts, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics has become a multi-disciplinary key university that focuses on finance and economics and maintains coordinated development in economics, management, law, arts and science. Internationalization has been consistently pursued as a strategy for the operation of SUFE for more than one hundred years. Since the establishment of the university in 1917, the founders and pioneers have been seeking to combine modern Western business education with the national conditions of China as a new way to train local business talent. In recent years, the university has fully implemented the Global SUFE strategy, absorbing advanced educational concepts and experience from international higher education and adopting an international perspective to promote reform in education and teaching. There are over 1,000 international students from 104 different countries studying at SUFE today.
