In 2018, focusing on the objectives of “increasing financial intelligence, cultivating financial intelligence and shaping financial wisdom”, JUFE launched the “Action Plan for First-class Undergraduate Education”, implemented the “Three Golden Projects” (“developing golden programs, creating golden courses, and cultivating golden teachers”), and forged three golden talents to provide a continuous stream of high-quality talents for the modern development of the country. JUFE followed the OBE education concept and improved the students’ knowledge structure of wealth to achieve the goal of increasing financial intelligence of “mastering a variety of knowledge and financial expertise”. The ability matrix of students to reasonably create, use and manage wealth was constructed to achieve the goal of cultivating financial intelligence of “enhancing ability and being proficient in financial knowledge”. The value system of students’ proper perception, application and harness of wealth was shaped to achieve the goal of cultivating financial intelligence of “improving quality and understanding of finance”.
Pursuing the goal of talent cultivation, JUFE continued the “Three Golden Projects” composed of 3 types of changes, 4 types of reinventions and 3 types of enhancements. Golden programs were developed with the principle of “digital transformation and cross collaboration”, which means digital transformation of programs, cross-fertilization of programs, and the collaborative education of industry and teaching. Golden courses were created with the key of “curriculum education and classroom revolution”, which means rebuilding the curriculum education system, the quality management of courses, the digital resources of courses, and the classroom teaching model. Golden teachers were cultivated with the focus on “evaluation reform and organizational teaching and Research”, which means teacher evaluation reform, enhanced organizational teaching and research activities, and improved typical demonstration and leadership. The integration of “Three Golden Projects” in the classroom formed the body of talent cultivation by “using golden programs as the special carrier to deepen the classroom teaching, using golden courses as the pivot to promote classroom reform, and using golden teachers as the main agents to implement classroom education”.
