Since the establishment of financial education in 1948, the school of Finance has more than 60-years of academic history. Our school, by following the trend of the development of the financial industry, has gradually formed the teaching philosophy of the “Three Emphases”, namely emphases on foundation, practice, and application, which has served for the talent cultivation goal of the “Three Ps”, including practice, practicability, and performance. We also have earned a good reputation by sending talented professions to financial institutions such as banks, insurance companies, and security companies. Our school won the title of “Advanced Collective of National Education System” in 2007 and was approved as the pilot school for university educational reform in Hubei Province in 2013.
Currently, there are five majors for undergraduates in our school, including Finance, Investment, Insurance, Financial Engineering, as well as Credit Management. We have also established multiple experimental classes for talent cultivation model reform, such as “Experimental Class of the Cultivation of Outstanding Innovative Talents in Finance”, “Experimental Class of International Finance”, and “ABC-Yangtze Rive Class” jointly with Agriculture Bank of China, Hubei Branch. Since 2010, we have jointly enrolled postgraduates of Finance with Hubei University and Zhongnan University of Economics and Law. Since 2012, we have enrolled MPAcc.
Our school has attached great importance to discipline construction and formed three academic directions, namely Regional Financial Development, Financial Risk Management, as well as Rural Financial System. Finance was rated as a key discipline in Hubei Province in 2006, and rated as a national characteristic specialties construction school in 2009 as well as a national pilot project for the comprehensive reform of the undergraduate majors in 2013.
With years of construction and development, our school has gradually formed an academic ladder, featuring relatively stable research areas and sustainable development of abilities. The ladder is formed with Chutian scholars, Rainbow scholars, and provincial academic leaders as the core, school academic leaders and academic backbones as the main part, and young and middle-aged teachers as the support. At present, the School of Finance has 45 full-time teachers, including 11 professors, 6 special-term professors, 22 associate professors, and 34 doctors (including PhD candidates). Among all the teachers, there are 3 professors named “Chutian Scholar”, 1 professor named “Rainbow Scholar”, 3 experts receiving Hubei Provincial Government special allowance, 2 cross-century young and middle-aged academic leaders of Hubei Province, 2 second-level candidates of Hubei New Century High-level Talents Program, 1 winner of Hubei May First Labor Medal, 1 young and middle-aged expert with prominent contributions to Hubei Province, and 9 teachers honored as “National Model Teacher”, “Excellent Educator of National Financial System”, “Hubei Pacesetter of Teachers’ Moralities ”, or “Hubei Excellent Teacher”. There are more than 30 teachers studying or conducting academic exchanges in famous universities of USA, Canada, UK, France, and Japan. We also have 4 provincial “Teaching Team of Key Financial Curriculums”, and Hubei outstanding scientific innovation team for the young and the middle-aged.
Our school had 1 project supported by the National Natural Foundation of China, 7 projects supported by the National Social Science Foundation of China, and 12 projects supported by the Humanities and Social Science Foundation of Chinese Ministry of Education.

There are approximately 2,000 undergraduates in our school.
