Professor of Economics
  • Prof. Zhou Lin is a Professor of Economics at Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF).

    Professor Zhou's research interest covers some fundamental areas of micro-economic theory, including game theory, mechanism design, social choice and welfare. Many of his original work was published in Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Economic Theory, Games and Economic Behavior. In 1993 he received a Sloan Research Fellowship in economics and finance. In 2009 he became the first China-based Econometric Society Fellow. 

    Professor Zhou taught in several US universities since 1989. He was an Associate Professor at Yale, a tenured Associate Professor at Duke, and the WP Carey Professor at Arizona State University. He also held several short-term position at many institutions. In 2006 he was appointed Dean of the school of economics of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He was one of the founding members of SAIF. In 2010, Professor Zhou was appointed as the Dean of Antai College of Economics and Management of SJTU. He led Anati successfully for eight years during which Antai had become one of the top business schools in the Asia-Pacific region. He returned to SAIF after two terms of deanship of Antai. 

    Professor Zhou is passionate about management education. He is currently an EQUIS Accreditation Board member of EFMD. He also served on the Board of AACSB and chaired the Asia-Pacific Advisory Council of AACSB. He still serves on the international advisory boards for many global business schools.

    For his contribution to the regional development, Professor Zhou received the Magnolia Award from the Municipal Government of Shanghai in 2013.
