On December 24, the Ministry of Education issued the Circular of the General Office of the Ministry of Education on Announcing the List of Construction Points for National- and Provincial-Level First-Class Undergraduate Programs for 2019 (Jiao Gao Ting Han  No. 46). Our school’s finance discipline was on the list, becoming one of first such construction points in the country. Earlier, it was selected as one of the construction points for first-class disciplines among colleges and universities in Beijing.
Finance was launched soon after the founding of the People’s Republic of China and is one of the oldest disciplines at CUFE. Boosted by the advantages of traditional disciplines such as monetary theory, bank management, securities investment and international finance, and integrated with risk management, big data finance, regulatory technology and intelligent finance, it aims to become a sophisticated discipline for financial security in the capital city, cultivate high-caliber financial professionals and serve the capital’s construction of “four centers” and national development strategies in the new era.
The School of Finance has long attached great importance to undergraduate education and teaching, and persistently sought “fostering character through education” as its fundamental task. On this occasion of being designated as a first-class undergraduate program, we will further improve program building and planning, continuously boost the connotation and development level of the program, strengthen its characteristics, ramp up inputs, enhance talent cultivation quality, and strive to build it into a world-class program with Chinese characteristics as early as possible.
