Dean’s Message

dean-300x402As one of the earliest institutions in China to offer education in economics and management, the School of Economics and Management at Tongji University (Tongji SEM) inherits Tongji’s aspiration of “serving the people and the world with one heart, in the same boat, and with the responsibility of rejuvenating the Chinese nation.” For more than a hundred years, relying on the predominant disciplines of Tongji University, Tongji SEM has gradually grown into a top economics and management school with distinctive characteristics and triple accreditations in China and Asia.  

While carrying on its mission of “to create management knowledge and develop leading professionals for China and the world who are capable of solving practical problems while addressing the challenges of business and society with a global perspective, responsibility and in a sustainable way”, Tongji SEM has continuously explored new models to integrate disciplines under the concept of “cross-discipline and collaborative development” and has cultivated innovative talents with first-class teaching quality. Tongji SEM focuses on Chinese national development strategies, integrates  national innovation, creates an all-round collaborative innovation system, promotes the transformation of scientific research achievements, and provides decision-making support for governments and an overall plan for the growth of enterprises and industries. Based in Shanghai, Tongji SEM proactively expands opportunities for international cooperation, carries out extensive exchanges and cooperation with many world-famous universities and cultivates business elites with global perspectives. 

In the future, Tongji SEM will continue to practice Tongji’s tradition of “serving the people and the world with science and education”, to be committed to creating a top domestic and world-class interdisciplinary field of economic and management, and to make steady progress towards the vision of “to be globally recognized for developing leading management professionals capable of building a sustainable society”.
