Program Description

SAIF’s mission is to become a world-class institution of research and advanced learning in finance and management.

Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF) was established at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in April 2009. SAIF combines the best of Western and Chinese education systems along with exceptional resources and faculty to offer a world class education on the campus of one of China’s top universities.

As a member of the world’s financial community, SAIF strives to contribute to the development of Shanghai as a global financial center. In working towards this goal, SAIF plays many different roles such as being a global talent and research center, a hub for interaction amongst academic, industry and government leaders, and a symbol of innovation and impact widely recognized by the media and leading financial professionals.

The Master of Finance (MF) program has been the flagship program at SAIF since it first matriculated students in the fall of 2009. As a two-year full-time program, MF program provides students with a consistent and sustainable competitive advantage in the increasingly global economy.
