2018 Financial Leaders of Tomorrow

Program Introduction
PROGRAM DATE: July 1 - 13, 2018

The two-week Tsinghua PBCSF Summer Program, in its sixth year, will continue to offer financial lectures for the attendees to comprehensively understand China's financial markets. You will also have the opportunity to explore the nation's capital and attend various cultural events.

As a world-leading teaching and research institution, Tsinghua University has long been dedicated to introduce the breadth and wonder of China's culture to the world, and promoting exchanges between young people from the East and West. Constantly ranked as the top university in China, Tsinghua University enjoys a prestigious history of excellence that very few other Chinese universities even come close to. 

The School's predecessor was the Graduate School of the People's Bank of China, established in 1981 by the central bank. The Graduate School distinguished itself from other institutions by producing graduates who have played major roles in the crafting of China's economic and financial policies and are taking leadership positions in the Chinese financial industry. 

The PBC School of Finance, the 17th school of the illustrious and time-honored university, was founded in March of 2012. The establishment of the School represents the culmination of the collaboration between the People's Bank of China (China's central bank) and Tsinghua University. 

Combining the educational strengths of Tsinghua University and the Graduate School of PBC, the new school is committed to building itself into a world-class financial institute, cultivating professional talents across financial sectors, and providing substantive policy advice to government agencies and institutions.
