Welcoming Address Delivered to the First Class of Belt and Road Program for Southeast Asia

Yang Bin, Vice President and Provost of Tsinghua University
 
May 11, 2017
 
 
Ladies and gentlemen,
 
Good afternoon!
 
First of all, on behalf of Tsinghua University, I would like to extend warm greetings to all of you to the First Class of Belt and Road Program for Southeast Asia, a leading-edge international Finance EMBA program of Tsinghua University PBC School of Finance.
 
Soon after it was established in 1911, Tsinghua University rose to fame as a world-renowned academic powerhouse bringing together a galaxy of talents from home and abroad. After the founding of New China, it became the first Chinese university to enroll foreign students. According to the QS University Rankings 2016, Tsinghua University ranked No. 1 in China, third in Asia, and 24th in the world. By the end of 2016, the University had 45 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, 33 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, and 2,657 Ph.D. supervisors. It is the Alma Mater of Nobel laureates including Yang Zhenning and Li Zhengdao, world-class scientists such as Qian Sanqiang and Deng Jiaxian, as well as more than 300 senior officials above provincial level.
 
In his congratulatory letter on the 105th anniversary of Tsinghua University, President Xi Jinping, who is an alumni, acknowledged the University’s unique way of teaching that combines the best of the east and the west, links up the ancient and the contemporary, and integrates liberal arts and sciences, requesting the university to stay globally-oriented, ambitious and confident and carry forward her characteristics, cultivate all types of talents for the country, implement the innovation-driven strategy in an in-depth manner, continue to take the lead in building a world-class university, and make greater contribution to national development, people’ wellbeing and human progress.
 
In response to the country’s development needs and the significant opportunities in higher education, Tsinghua formulated her landmark Global Strategy in 2016, reiterating the goal to shape itself into a top university in the world. Meanwhile, it has deepened international cooperation and exchanges in all aspects to broaden her students’ horizon and better connect China and the world. It has also made efforts to fully join the league of the world’s best universities and lead the development of global higher education.
 
On September 10, 2016, the official opening ceremony was held for Schwarzman College, which is aimed to cultivate the future global leaders. Chinese President Xi Jinping and then U.S. President Barack Obama sent their congratulatory letters. In the same month, the first cohort of students were admitted to the Global Innovation Exchange, a partnership with the University of Washington and Microsoft. We have conducted comprehensive cooperation with the University of Geneva, collaborating to build a sustainable development research center and establish a training base in Geneva that provides Chinese college students with internship and employment opportunities at international organizations. We have cooperated with the Polytechnic University of Milan to build the China-Italy design innovation base in Milan as part of a move to advance the strategic partnership. Moreover, the construction of Tsinghua University Shenzhen Global Campus was commenced, which is set to lift the University’s level of innovation, international cooperation and talent cultivation in an all-round way.
 
On April 29, 2017, the Asian Universities Alliance was officially established at Tsinghua University. Initiated by the University, the Alliance has 15 founding members from 14 countries and regions, and is committed to promoting cooperation innovation and cultural exchanges in the Asian higher education community, cultivating young leaders from diverse cultural contexts, improving the overall quality of higher education and the scientific and technological innovation ability of Asia, and contributing to regional development and global governance.
 
At the unveiling ceremony of the Belt and Road Initiative Institute on April 26, President Qiu Yong pointed out that the Belt and Road Initiative tallies with the global cooperation trend and the needs of national and regional development, and is of epoch-changeing significance for the Chinese government to coordinate domestic and international efforts and advance the opening up in an all-round way. He proposed that the University should dovetail its positioning with the Belt and Road Initiative, focus on “meeting needs and improving educational quality” to cultivate enterprising pioneers and leaders with global vision, and develop comprehensive, interdisciplinary professional master’s programs catering to actual needs.
 
Tsinghua PBCSF Belt and Road Program for Southeast Asia is a partnership on the basis of the century-long accomplishments of Tsinghua University and more than 30 years of financial reform practices of People’s Bank of China Graduate School. Backed by the University’ rich teaching resources, Tsinghua PBCSF provides a number of customized programs in light of China’s financial reform practices and international financial development, and maintains close cooperation with the People’s Bank of China, China Insurance Regulatory Commission, China Banking Regulatory Commission and China Securities Regulatory Commission.
 
Financial education should balance knowledge and practice, so it is necessary to break the barrier between universities and society, introduce quality teaching resources from practical work to universities, and strengthen exchanges between financial educators, financial researchers and financial practitioners. The Belt and Road Program for Southeast Asia should be dedicated to “cultivating financial leaders and guiding financial practices”, and highlight the features of “focusing on finance, guiding practices, controlling capital and driving innovation”, with the aim of cultivating financial leaders who are familiar with international financial rules and practices and capable of financial innovation under the new normal, and outstanding entrepreneurs who can manage financial capital and guide industrial transformation and upgrading.
 
As members of the first class of Tsinghua PBCSF Belt & Road program, you are endowed with heavy responsibility. I hope you can fulfill the role of pioneers and make concerted efforts to build the program into one of the most advanced regarding the Belt and Road Initiative, and thus boost exchanges and cooperation between China and Southeast Asia, contribute to the economic development and peace of Asia and the world, and create more splendid chapters in the history of human progress. If you have any requests and suggestions to Tsinghua University and Tsinghua PBCSF, just feel free to let me know. May you have a rewarding, prosperous and happy school year at Tsinghua University!
 
Thank you!
 
 
清华五道口金融EMBA“一带一路”东南亚项目首期班开学典礼上的讲话
 
杨斌 清华大学副校长、教务长
 
2017年5月11日
 
各位首期班的同学、老师们,大家上午好!
 
今天我来到清华大学五道口金融学院,参加“一带一路”东南亚项目的开班,代表学校来欢迎各位加入清华大学国际化最前沿的代表项目——清华五道口金融EMBA“一带一路”东南亚项目。
 
从1911年建校起,清华大学就是一所国际化程度很高的学校,荟中西鸿儒,集四方俊秀,迅速成为驰名中外的学术重镇。新中国成立以后,清华是第一个接收外国留学生的高校。改革开放以来,清华大学确立综合性、研究型、开放式的总体办学思路,深入开展多层次、多渠道、全方位的国际合作与交流,扎根中国大地,努力办好中国特色的世界一流大学。在2016年QS全球大学排行榜上,清华大学位居中国第一、亚洲第三、全球第24名。截至2016年底,清华大学现有中国科学院院士45名、中国工程院院士33名、博士生指导教师2657名,培养出杨振宁、李政道等诺贝尔奖得主和钱三强、邓稼先等全球顶尖科学家,以及300余名省部级以上领导干部。
 
习近平总书记在致清华大学建校105周年贺信中肯定了清华所开创的中西融汇、古今贯通、文理渗透的办学风格,要求清华大学面向世界、勇于进取,树立自信、保持特色,广育祖国和人民需要的各类人才,深度参与创新驱动发展战略实施,努力在创建世界一流大学方面走在前列,为国家发展、人民幸福、人类文明进步作出新的更大的贡献。
 
面对国家发展战略需求与高等教育的重大变革与机遇,清华大学将加快推进世界一流大学的建设步伐,于2016年制订具有里程碑意义的《清华大学全球战略》。与此同时,清华大学全面深化全球交流合作,拓展学生的国际视野,更好地联结中国与世界,全面融入一流大学网络并力争引领全球高等教育发展。
 
2016年9月10日,旨在培养未来世界领导者的苏世民书院正式开学,国家主席习近平和美国总统奥巴马分别发来贺信。与美国华盛顿大学、微软公司共建的全球创新学院招收了首批学生;与瑞士日内瓦大学开展全面合作,共建可持续发展研究中心,在日内瓦建立培养和输送中国大学生赴国际组织实习与就业的基地;推动与意大利米兰理工大学建立战略合作伙伴关系,在米兰共同打造中意设计创新基地;启动建设清华大学深圳国际校区,全面提升学校在前沿创新、国际合作和高端人才培养方面的水平。
 
2017年4月29日, 清华大学发起倡议的亚洲大学联盟,经过一年筹备,在清华大学正式成立,创始成员涵盖14个国家和地区的15所具有代表性的大学,将努力促进亚洲高等教育领域的合作创新与文化交流,共同培养根植于亚洲多元化文化环境的青年领袖人才,整体提高亚洲区域高等教育质量和科技创新能力,为地区发展和全球治理贡献亚洲智慧。
 
邱勇校长在2017年4月26日清华大学 “一带一路”战略研究院揭牌之际,指出推进"一带一路"建设是党中央国务院统筹国内国际两大大局,顺应全球和全球合作潮流,契合隐性国家和地区发展需要的重大战略格局,对开创我国全方位对外开放新格局具有划时代的重大意义。他建议清华大学在人才培养中围绕“服务需求、提升质量”,在“一带一路”国家战略中,要与自身定位契合,要聚焦定位于培养国际视野、具有开拓精神的领军人才和先行者,围绕实践中的需求开发综合性、跨学科的专业硕士项目。
 
清华五道口金融EMBA“一带一路”东南亚项目在清华大学的百年底蕴与人民银行研究生部的三十余年金融改革实践基础之上,依托清华丰厚的教学资源,保持与中国人民银行、保监会、银监会、证监会等金融监管机构的紧密合作,量身定制出一套紧密结合中国金融改革实践与全球化金融发展的培养体系。
 
金融教育要处理好知识教学和实践教学的关系,要打破高校和社会之间的体制壁垒,将实际工作部门的优质实践教学资源引进高校,加强金融教育、金融研究工作者和金融实际工作者之间的交流。“一带一路”东南亚项目要坚持以“培养金融领袖、引领金融实践”为目标,以“聚焦金融、引领实践、驾驭资本、驱动革新”为特色,旨在培养通晓国际金融规则和实践经验,具备新常态下金融创新能力的金融领袖,以及驾驭金融资本引领行业转型升级的优秀企业家。
 
在座的各位作为首期班的一员,责任非常重大。希望你们在整个项目过程当中,一定要扮演好奠基者的角色,共同把这样的一个项目,打造成最前沿的“一带一路”与国际化项目,并以此促进东南亚与中国的交流与合作,为亚洲乃至世界的经济发展与和平共同努力,为人类文明进步书写更加灿烂的篇章!有任何对清华、对五道口金融学院的要求和建议,请大家不吝指教!也希望大家学有收获,在接下来的学习期间,在新的一年当中事业发达、阖家幸福!
 
谢谢大家!
