The school’s history dates back to 1950. Known as a pioneer in management education in China, it was among the first batch of academic institutes to offer China’s own MBA program, EMBA program, MPAcc program, and PhD programs in Industrial Economics, General Management and Accounting. It was also the first to deliver Sino-foreign joint EMBA program.
