“The world has never needed MIT as much as it does now.”
China Center for Financial Research
The China Center for Financial Research (CCFR) is a joint collaboration between MIT Sloan and Tsinghua University’s School of Economics and Management in Beijing. The CCFR initiates and supports high-quality research geared toward the responsible development of China’s financial policies, its financial markets and institutions, and its corporate governance structure. Directed by MIT Sloan Professor Jiang Wang, the center serves as an open research platform and connection point for researchers from Tsinghua, MIT Sloan, and other institutions throughout China and the United States.
The CCFR also facilitates education and training programs designed to meet China’s pressing need for researchers and educators in finance. Program activities include:
- A yearly international conference on finance that is held in China
- An advanced summer training program and workshop for young Chinese researchers, finance faculty, and graduate students taught by professors from MIT Sloan and other international universities and organizations
“Chinese culture has many rules and behavior. The culture here is more relaxed. Students have more freedom. Freedom encourages more creation. Professors put out questions with no answers, ask students to think. It’s good to make students think, learn from each other. I will teach students with more freedom.”
