As one of the first universities and colleges qualified to set up the MBA program in western China, SWUFE began the education for MBA in 1993. After nearly two decades of development, the training quality of MBA has been widely recognized by China National MBA Education Supervisory Committee, enjoying a high reputation in western China. On one hand, as for the curriculum and training mode, our MBA program relies on the top teachers in advantageous and idiomatical disciplines, such as Finance, Economics and Management, and we employ domestic and overseas economists, bankers and entrepreneurs as part-time supervisors as well. On the other hand, we put an emphasis on the interactive case study with four special-oriented courses – Cooperate Finance, Financial Management, Strategic Marketing Management and Human Resource Management. In addition, we have set international exchange programs with Washington State University, University of Cincinnati, The City University of New York and Université de Haute Alsace-Mulhouse, offering plenty of opportunities for international exchange.
In 2010, SBA took charge of MBA program from the previous SWUFE MBA Education Center (EMBA Center at present) and set up a brand-new team to carry out the work formally. We have fulfilled the tasks of the enrollment and orientation of freshmen in 2010, teaching and dissertation defense of students in 2008 and 2009, etc., established a new website on MBA Education to build a bridge for faculty, students and the society, and formally started to bid for AMBA international authentication.
In 2011, the tasks of the MBA Education Center would be based on the policies and regulations of the State Council Academic Degrees Committee and China National MBA Education Supervisory Committee, and oriented by the standards of AACSB and EQUIS, the two major international authentication systems. We would optimize our internal management constantly, enrich the extracurricular activities, enhance the services for students and take full use of the high-quality faculty, outstanding alumni and social activities of SBA so as to build the MBA program into the social platform for alumni, the interactive platform for SWUFE and enterprises, the tie linking students and the place for lifelong learning.
