The Economics and Management School of Wuhan University, founded in 1893, is the largest of its kind in China, with over 270 faculty members and more than 13,000 students. Over the years, we have built a reputation of being one of the most influential and competitive business schools in China. Our next task is to further enhance our overall research strength through internationalization. Our long-term goal is to push for the advancement of business knowledge and to bring cutting-edge research into classrooms.
In the era of the knowledge economy, talent has become the key resource. To create an environment that is conducive for new talents to emerge, we will further break hierarchical boundaries within the school and promote free-spirited academic discussion. We encourage departments and research centers to organize more seminars and study groups to seek frontier knowledge and to innovate. We aim to build an institution in which our scholars can flourish in their mission in research, teaching, and community development.
Our vision is "to become a leading business school in China with world-class standing." I urge our faculty members and students to work together, with the assistance and involvement of our alumni and other community leaders, to build our school into a dynamic and invigorating home of learning.
I hope that you will follow us closely and become a part of us in your own way. And most of all, enjoy the active academic atmosphere that we are endeavoring to provide!
