Dongbei University of Finance and Economics (DUFE), founded in 1952, is located in the coastal city of Dalian which is a welcoming vibrant city with a comfortable climate. With the mission of “cultivating outstanding financial talents and serving economic and social development”, DUFE is a remarkable co-ordinated university which is famous for its achievements in economics, management, law, literature and science.
