Hands On Finance

The Hands-On Finance Training Program is a three week training program for Chinese undergraduate and graduate students. The course is predominantly taught by Wall Street executives, including CEOs, Chief Market Strategists, Senior Economists and others. Classes utilize both instructor training and visits to places such as Bloomberg, NYSE, NYMEX, the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the U.S. Department of Engraving and Printing, and others.

Past programs have included courses in asset management, sales and trading, equity research, and financial planning.

Innovative Learning

  • GFSI is located on the east coast, which makes it easy for Chinese students to visit the financial capital of the world --New York City and nearby cities (Boston, Washington, etc.). The summer program also includes trips to the West Coast.
