Professor Pan Yu explained in depth how to make development plans for the school based on the discipline evaluation index, and the measures to build a first-class and internationally renowned research-oriented business school in China. Speaking from his own experience, he also shared his thoughts on school management. He pointed out that the development of a school must revolve around four key aspects, that is, the quality of talents cultivation, the construction of teaching staff and resources, scientific research level and social service and discipline reputation. Only by focusing on these four aspects, can a school succeed in cultivating top-ranking talents and building first-class disciplines with first-rate teachers and scientific research. Through rapid development in recent years, the School of Business and Management of SISU now has several academic leaders among its teaching staff. It has also established a multi-level education and scientific research system that offers doctoral, master’s and bachelor’s degree programs, as well as academic and professional degrees. The school is authorized to offer doctoral programs and postdoctoral programs under the tier-I discipline of Business Administration, and has become the best management school of its kind. Its Bachelor’s programs in Business Administration, Information Management and Information System have been recognized as national first-class undergraduate programs. Its MBA program has been accredited by AMBA.

Professor Yang Xiaolan highlighted the Academic Sailing Plan launched by the School of Business and Management of SISU. The plan aims to continuously improve the innovation ability of undergraduates, advance the postgraduate cultivation stage, and transform the service school to a research-oriented business school. Students will receive major enrollment training in the first four semesters, and outstanding students will be selected at the end of the fourth semester to join the Academic Sailing Plan. Students will receive scientific research training in innovative thinking, introduction to classics, data processing and essay writing through academic training camp and tutorship. After four semesters of cultivation and training, the comprehensive scientific research ability of the students will be improved, they will preliminarily set up a complete knowledge system of the discipline, which will help them as scientific research assistants to the teachers. The Academic Sailing Plan has achieved remarkable results. 70% of the outstanding undergraduate graduation theses each year come from students participating in the Academic Sailing Plan, and some outstanding students have published academic papers in well-known international and domestic journals.

The lectures given by the two professors were both macroscopic and feasible. From the interpretation of the discipline evaluation index system to the specific reform measures, they offered a broad vision and rich contents, which gave the attendees great inspiration on thoughts and methods of work. There was constant applause at the lecture, and everyone said that they would learn from the advanced practices and take HUTB’'s strategic goal of “Three Advances and Three Heights” as a guide to implement the fundamental task of fostering virtues and cultivating people, focus on cultivating innovative, entrepreneurial, practical and interdisciplinary talents, and strive to build the school into an innovative first-class technology and business university with distinctive characteristics.
