Dalian University of Technology, School of Economics and Management

School of Economics and Management (SEM) at Dalian University of Technology (DUT) can be traced back to 1980. The National Center for Industrial Science and Technology Management Development (at Dalian) and the Department of Management Engineering, under the support of China’s Ministry of Education (MOE), National Scientific and Technological Commission, National Economic and Trade Commission, and the U.S. Department of Commerce, were jointly established in 1980, as the first step toward introducing modern U.S. management education into China. In 1984, SEM became the pioneer of Chinese MBA education, launching the first MBA program in mainland China (the program was conducted by a U.S. university, the State University at Buffalo School of Management, until 1990). One of the first management schools in mainland China, the School of Management—the predecessor of SEM—was founded in 1985. In 2007, SEM was selected as the organizer for the China Management Case-Sharing Center (CMCC) for the MBA Education Institutes. Currently CMCC is the world’s largest and highest-quality Chinese Management Case Database.

In the past nearly 40 years, we have been committing ourselves to the faith of “Being Practical and Erudition” and the mission of “To identify, bridge, and advance the best business practices in China and the world thereby accelerating societal prosperity, developing the next generation of inspired business leaders, and contributing knowledge through research, teaching, and outreach”. We strive to build SEM to be the first-class domestic business school bridging the China’s management practice with the new knowledge of global business.
