Former People’s Bank of China Exec Joins CEIBS Faculty

Shanghai, China. October 10, 2016 – One of the most preeminent authorities on monetary policy and macroeconomics in China and former People’s Bank of China (PBOC) executive Dr. Sheng Songcheng has joined the CEIBS faculty. As Adjunct Professor of Economics and Finance at CEIBS, Prof. Sheng will enhance the school’s ability to strengthen its curriculum by adding even more up-to-date and policy-relevant knowledge.  

Prof. Sheng’s research interests are mainly focused on monetary economics, monetary theory and policy, and macro-economic analysis. He has made outstanding contributions in both theory and policy in areas such as: aggregate finance to the real economy, capital account opening, interest rate liberalisation, as well as financial transformation and development.  He has published more than 100 academic essays in influential periodicals, including the Economic Research Journal, Journal of Financial Research, China Finance, China Economic Weekly, Economy & Nation Weekly, China Reform, China Policy Review, China State Finance, and Economic Daily.

Prior to joining CEIBS, Prof. Sheng taught EMBA and PhD courses at Tsinghua University’s PBC School of Finance. He was also Director General of the Department of Statistics & Research at the PBOC.

Prof. Sheng’s addition to the school’s already impressive list of faculty is the second appointment this year of an influential figure from China’s banking sector. In July, Dr. Jiang Jianqing, former Chairman of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) joined CEIBS as Adjunct Professor of Finance. The two appointments are expected to strengthen the ‘China Depth’ aspect of the CEIBS curriculum.
