Most notably, with the ongoing enhancements to its educational and research programs, School of Management, Fudan University has been one of the vanguards in fulfilling the mission of our times of making contributions to the economic and social development of China by taking the initiative to develop innovative educational programs. Citing an example, the School launched a Sci-tech Innovation Strategy in 2020 despite being in the throes of the Covid-19 pandemic, under which several special research projects that examined what benefits sci-tech innovation (STI) brings to management and how management empowers it were undertaken. The School also established the Fudan Sci-tech Innovation Leadership Program, and took the lead among Chinese business schools in opening an Sci-tech Innovation Program Office in a move to accelerate the creation of STI-based ecosystem and to empower STI organizations. In further support of the country's sci-tech innovation initiative, the School is also continuing the implementation of research projects that examine other aspects of STI management and facilitate the formation of STI leaders.
The School plans to further enhance the quality of its educational programs as well as create and nurture a career path for management professionals, professors, researchers and social leaders with a global perspective and a deep understanding of what China needs, with the aim of making greater contributions to the country's economic growth and social development.
