Classes for the first batch of 110 postgraduates in the program will begin in September, according to the university.

"The institute will serve as a holistic platform that combines the essences of industries, education, research, innovation and application, to identify market-oriented channels that would accelerate scientific advances," said Lin Zhongqin, president of the university, in his speech at the SJTU-BOC Technology and Finance Summit, during which the institute was unveiled.

Lin noted the institute will explore university-bank collaborations, deepen the industry-academic integration, build a tech-finance ecosystem and boost the commercialization of technological achievements.
