“We are very excited to offer this quality graduate program to students in China and we look forward to working together with Renmin University,” said Wei Wang, Director, Queen’s Master of Finance – Beijing.

This one-year program is modeled on Queen’s popular Master of Finance program offered in Toronto. For the Renmin program, the curriculum consists of 10 courses, five taught by Renmin faculty and five taught by Queen’s faculty. Students have the option to travel to Canada for one of the Queen’s-led courses. All classes are taught in English.

Graduates from the program will receive a Queen’s Master of Finance degree and a graduation certificate from Renmin University. Applicants must have a university degree and at least two years of relevant work experience.

The first class will begin in September 2014.

In March 2013, Queen’s University and Renmin University also signed an agreement for an undergraduate student exchange program for students in arts and science.

China is a region of strategic importance for Queen’s University. Over the past decade, the university has worked diligently to establish strong working relationships with leading Chinese institutions. With the opening of the University’s China Liaison Office in 2007, Queen’s was the first Canadian university to establish a physical presence in mainland China.
