Who We Are

Located in the heart of Lujiazui, Shanghai’s leading financial center, NYU Shanghai Center for Business Education and Research (CBER) aims to promote innovative research on China-related business and to inspire academic collaboration among industry leaders, business faculty and students through a variety of co-curricular activities. A distinctive feature of CBER is a robust research environment, one that supports interdisciplinary studies in business, liberal arts and sciences. It also provides a varied, multicultural learning environment that gives students a global edge and a unique competitive advantage. As some of CBER’s faculty members are well-established experts in the field of marketing, economics and finance, they strive to integrate a wealth of real-world experience and business acumen into academic and research activities.

Currently, the center is in collaboration with many leading business schools and institutions in China and throughout the world. This includes NYU Stern School of Business, School of Management at Fudan University, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGBS), Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF) and Pudong Institute of Finance (PIF).
