The Symposium on Teacher Classification and Intellectual Contribution Held at Economics and Management School


        In order to proceed the international accreditation of AACSB smoothly, a symposium on teacher classification and intellectual contribution was held in the Home of Teaching Staff of the School of Economics and Management on the afternoon of July 9, 2018. Assistant to the Dean of our School, Associate Prof. Guo Lin presided over the meeting which was attended by all members of the AACSB committee. The purpose of this meeting is to analyze and summarize the teachers situation of our school according to the standards reported by our school in AACSB accreditation, and to discuss the dynamic adjustment scheme of relevant standards in our school for the next year.

In accordance with the relevant standards of the AACSB, business education teachers should maintain active participation and make certain staged achievements in business academic (Scholarly Academics or Scholarly Practitioners) or business practice (Practice Academics or Instructional Practitioners). The overwhelming proportion of faculty in departments, programs and specialties of business schools should meet the criteria. Institutions participating in AACSB accreditation shall establish conditions that appropriate to their own realities and development demands to support their vision, mission and development strategy. The quantity, quality and structure of scientific research or practical results should reflect the effectiveness of the School's development strategy. The list and number of journals published by faculty members have also been added into the strategy this year, in contrast to the Journal Classification of the school.

Since 2015, our school has been carrying out the statistical analysis work of teacher classification and intellectual contribution. The data over the years show that the teachers in our school are excellent, and the teachers who have doctorate degrees and abundant positive output in academic circles (research-based academic teachers) are the strong support of our research development orientation. The overall scientific research results are abundant, and high level results are emerging. At the same time, there is still great potential in teachers cultivation and development of our school, such as the leadership of top talents to the research team, social service and influence.

The results of statistical analysis after the conference will help the  department further study measures of teacher cultivation, facilitate the endogenous development of the school, and favor the teachers of our school "get their proper places and develop their talents".
