The Program
The Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE) was established in 1949 and is a leading comprehensive university in China.  Located in downtown Beijing, CUFE provides a dynamic environment for the study of Business and Economics

Your Host City: Beijing
Situated on the northern tip of the North China Plain, Beijing is flanked by mountains to the north and west which shield the city from the encroaching desert steppes.  It is the political, educational, and cultural center of China and the nation's most populous city with over 15 million residents.  The architecture and museums found in Beijing trace the country's history from its earliest days up to the present.  Beijing reflects China’s long and evolving history and is home to some of the nation’s most well-known and culturally important sites such as the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and Summer Palace.

The CUFE academy offers a set curriculum each semester.  The expected course offerings for the Fall 2015 semester are listed below.
