The Shanghai University of Finance and Economics (SUFE) is a national research university with focus on finance and economics oriented research. The university, which happens to be the oldest financial university in the country, is located in the city of Shanghai in the People’s Republic of China. It is directly administered by the Chinese Ministry of Education and is part of the National Project 211 and Project 985.
The motto of the university when translated into English reads as “Strive for Virtue and knowledge, Assist in Economy and Governance”.
HONOURS AND DISTINCTION
Being the best institution of higher learning as far as finance and economics is concerned; the university has constantly bagged the top position in the Chinese university ranking (Netbig) list in the “finance and economics” category since 2003. On the other hand, internationally too, SUFE has made a name for itself in the field of research. This prestigious university has been placed at the120th position in the world, 9th in Asia and 3rd in China, according to the Tilburg University’s Economics Schools Research Ranking of 2012.
TRACING ITS ROOTS
This institute of higher learning had its humble beginning in 1917 as a business program at the Nanjing Advanced Normal School. Subsequently in 1921, the program was shifted to Shanghai and was given the name of Shanghai University of Commerce. From then on, the university has undergone different stages of evolution and was renamed as the School of Commerce of the Central University in 1928. It emerged as the National Shanghai College of Commerce after it was split from the Central University in 1932. Later in 1950, the institution was renamed as the Shanghai College of Finance and Economics. Finally in 1985, the institution acquired the present name of the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.
SCHOOLS OF STUDY
The Shanghai University of Finance and Economics has one graduate school, more than 20 finance and academic research centers, 12 academic schools, a vocational school, the School of Continuing (Adult) Education, the School of International Education, and the School of Online Learning. SUFE received accreditation to grant doctoral degrees in 1981, becoming the first finance and Economics University to receive such an accreditation. It also happens to be the first group of schools to introduce a post-doctoral program in economics and one of the first nine schools selected as an “M.B.A. Experimental Education Base”.
At present the university is housed in four campuses. The main campus, which is the undergraduate education hub, is situated on Guoding Road in Yangpu District. The campus which houses international students and other professionals is the North Zhongshan No.1 Road Campus that offers MBA programs. There is another campus on Wuchuan Road which has become an education base for both undergraduate and graduate students. Another campus at Wudong Road is coming up.
Shanghai is the largest Chinese city by population and the largest city proper by population in the world. It is one of the four direct-controlled municipalities of the People’s Republic of China, with a population of more than 24 million as of 2013. It is a global financial center, and a transport hub with the world’s busiest container port. Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits at the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west, and is bounded to the east by the East China Sea.
For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port location and economic potential. The city was one of five opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession. The city then flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s. However, with the Communist Party takeover of the mainland in 1949, trade was reoriented to focus on socialist countries, and the city’s global influence declined. In the 1990s, the economic reforms introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.
Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum. It has been described as the “showpiece” of the booming economy of mainland China.
Shanghai has a humid subtropical climate and experiences four distinct seasons. Winters are chilly and damp, and cold northwesterly winds from Siberia can cause nighttime temperatures to drop below freezing, although most years there are only one or two days of snowfall. Summers are hot and humid, with an average of 8.7 days exceeding 35 °C (95 °F) annually; occasional downpours or freak thunderstorms can be expected. The city is also susceptible to typhoons in summer and the beginning of autumn, none of which in recent years has caused considerable damage. The most pleasant seasons are spring, although changeable and often rainy, and autumn, which is generally sunny and dry. The city averages 4.2 °C (39.6 °F) in January and 27.9 °C (82.2 °F) in July, for an annual mean of 16.1 °C (61.0 °F). With monthly percent possible sunshine ranging from 34% in March to 54% in August, the city receives 1,895 hours of bright sunshine annually. Extreme temperatures within the municipality range from 40.8 °C (105 °F) on 7 August 2013, down to -12.1 °C (10 °F) on 19 January 1893
Shanghai has an extensive public transport system, largely based on metros, buses and taxis. Payment of all these public transportation tools can be made by using the Shanghai Public Transportation Card.
Shanghai is a major hub of China’s expressway network. Many national expressways (prefixed with G) pass through or terminate in Shanghai, including G2 Beijing-Shanghai Expressway (overlapping G42 Shanghai-Chengdu), G15 Shenyang-Haikou, G40 Shanghai-Xi’an, G50 Shanghai-Chongqing, G60 Shanghai-Kunming (overlapping G92 Shanghai-Ningbo), and G1501 Shanghai Ring Expressway. In addition, there are also numerous municipal expressways prefixed with S (S1, S2, S20, etc.). In the city center, there are several elevated expressways to lessen traffic pressure on surface streets, but traffic in and around Shanghai is often heavy and traffic jams are commonplace during rush hour. There are bicycle lanes separate from car traffic on many surface streets, but bicycles and motorcycles are banned from most main roads including the elevated expressways.
Shanghai has four major railway stations: Shanghai Railway Station, Shanghai South Railway Station, Shanghai West Railway Station, and Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. Three are connected to the metro network and serve as hubs in the railway network of China. Two main railways terminate in Shanghai: Jinghu Railway from Beijing, and Huhang Railway from Hangzhou. Hongqiao Station also serves as the main Shanghai terminus of three high-speed rail lines: the Shanghai-Hangzhou High-Speed Railway, the Shanghai-Nanjing High-Speed Railway, and the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway.
Shanghai is one of the leading air transport gateways in Asia. The city has two commercial airports: Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport. Pudong Airport is the main international airport, while Hongqiao Airport mainly operates domestic flights with limited short-haul international flights. In 2010 the two airports served 71.7 million passengers (Pudong 40.4 million, Hongqiao 31.3 million), and handled 3.7 million tons of cargo (Pudong 3.22 million tons, Hongqiao 480 thousand tons).
