MF Program

 

Background

With the progress of economic globalization, the relationship between economy and finance grows more complex and closer and finance plays an increasing role in the economy, while modern financial development patterns and structures are changing accordingly.


The above factors have given rise to the urgent demand for financial talents who grasp the financial theory and have excellent practice abilities. Against this background, the 27th meeting of the Academic Degree Committee of the State Council held in January 2010 approved the MF degree setting scheme and decided to introduce the MF degree in China.


The same year, the Ministry of Education authorized some universities to enroll MF students starting from 2011. SEBA’s MF Program was among the first programs approved in China and it came formally into operation in September 2013.
