Since 2015, Business School has been engaged in AACSB international accreditation and become a non- accredited member. By the implementation of Undergraduate Teaching Reform, we improve overall teaching quality and internationalization level under the guidance of AACSB. Specifically, student- teacher interaction has been strengthened, and the curriculum has been optimized by supplying frontier courses and improving research to reach the high requirements from AACSB. Business School has set an international performance evaluation system to motivate and supervise faculty and improve school governance, ensuring the sustainable development of Business School.
