Since its establishment in 1984, Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management (Tsinghua SEM) has made remarkable achievements under the leadership of successive deans, through the efforts of all faculty and students, as well as the help of alumni and friends.
As China enters a new era, the School needs to make a new effort. Since economic reform and opening started 40 years ago, China has achieved remarkable success in economic development, but the economic and management research community in China has yet to be very successful in telling the "China story" academically. It is our responsibility to be more courageous and innovative, and at the same time adhere to high academic standards, in creating academic results inspired by the practices in China that can significantly impact the fields of economics and management studies, and effectively combine such results with existing knowledge to improve the quality of education. Our School is willing to work together with other colleagues in the profession to advance this cause, contributing to the advancement of human knowledge and to the development of China and the World.
