Recently, SUFE signed a cooperation agreement with the University of Maryland, which includes the framework agreement between the two universities and a cooperation agreement for Master’s degrees in both universities.
According to the framework agreement, both sides will carry out pragmatic cooperation and seek common development in the fields such as talent cultivation and scientific research in the future.
According to the cooperation agreement for Master’s degrees, SUFE students will receive a Master's degree in International Finance or a Master’s degree in International Organization from Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and a Master's degree in Finance or a Master's degree in Financial Measurement from the University of Maryland. The agreement is valid for 5 years.
The double-degree program includes the academic advantages of the two universities. It is also another excellent cooperation program after the cooperation with Queen Mary University of London, Fordham University, George Washington University and the Singapore Management University. It enables SUFE students to stay competitive and offers diversified alternatives. More importantly, it promotes the construction of the first-tier majors and the quality of postgraduate education.
For the next step, the two universities will discuss the details to lay solid consolidation for talent cultivation and joint development.
