In recent years, the College of Management develops fast in academic achievements. On average, we have 8 grants supported by NSFC (Natural Science Foundation of China) and 2 grants supported by SSFC (Social Science Foundation of China) each year. Our faculty members have published academic papers on top-tier journals and academic books in both China and Overseas.

College of Management focuses on cultivating business elites with innovation and entrepreneurship spirits. Consequently, we built an Experimental Center for Modern Management Teaching to train and improve the students’ practical ability. The Experimental Center consists of Integrated Information Management Laboratory, Ecommerce innovation and entrepreneurship Laboratory, ERP Laboratory and Merchandising Laboratory. Normally, it can offer 45 experimental courses and 230 experimental programs. Every year, it organizes and assists students to attend sorts of activities related to experiment-based teaching and simulation competitions of business decision-making. So far, the student team of College of Management has achieved 5 global prizes and 50 national prizes involving the competitions such as the Peak Time International and the National ERP Sand Table.

To support the innovation and entrepreneurship education, College of Management provides 19 general courses and 5 advanced courses on entrepreneurship to the students of Shenzhen University. We established Entrepreneurship Elite Program in 2011 and Public Service Innovation Program in 2015. Twenty eight percent of the students in the Entrepreneurship Elite Program have founded their own companies in China.

We also try to expand the students’ global vision by international study programs and joint programs. For example, to obtain their degrees, our MBA students must pass at least twice international studies. Till now, College of Management has 3 joint programs collaborated with foreign universities and more than ten exchange student programs.

We are young but we develop very fast. We are making changes by improvement and responsibility.
