Confucius Institute

Dongbei University of Finance and Economics

Founded in 1952, Dongbei University of Finance and Economics (DUFE) serves as a multidisciplinary, teaching-and-research-oriented university focusing on economics, management, law, arts, and science. It offers full-time and part-time education programs, including 38 doctoral programs, 72 master’s programs, and 31 undergraduate programs. DUFE fosters the education of qualified professionals and integrates in-class teaching and extra-curricular learning to enhance students’ social responsibility, professional dedication, and sense of community.

To further broaden educational horizons, DUFE began to encourage international cooperation and exchange in 1994. With more than a decade of experience, the university has gradually brought about internationalization of instructional languages, teaching materials, curriculum systems, and administration patterns. Its language program focuses on teaching Chinese to non-native Chinese speakers. So far, DUFE has established cooperative relationships with 78 universities and one international agency that altogether span 18 different countries or regions.

Dongbei University is located west of Xinghai Park, a state-level scenic spot in Dalian, which is known for its tranquility and beauty. Dalian, a city of six million people, is located in the northeast coast of China. Like Portland, Dalian is a port city with four seasons, temperate climates, and a large tourism industry.
