Dean's Message

 

Dean Zhou Lin
Antai College of Economics & Management



As I take the helm of the Antai College of Economics and Management, I would like to share with you my enthusiasm and expectations regarding the future of the college.

In 1918 Jiao Tong University launched a management program, one of the first of its kind in China. Entering the new millennium, we remain one of China’s leaders in business education and research. Underpinning our success are our core values: excellence, fundamentals, discipline, practicality, and innovation. Our faculty members, many trained in top international programs, are producing original research ideas that are recognized and appreciated by their peers. Our MBA and EMBA programs consistently place at or near the top of various national rankings. The MBA program was ranked 41st globally by the Financial Times in 2008 and the Masters of Science in Management program was ranked 37th globally by the Financial Times in 2009. Our success has earned us a solid reputation within the international community of business education. The college is accredited by two international accreditation organizations, EQUIS and the AMBA. We also have many global partners, such as MIT, USC, and UBC, with whom we collaborate on various projects.

To become a truly world-class business school, however, we must work even harder. We must establish a governance structure that promotes academic freedom and emphasizes faculty involvement; we must foster a faculty team that comprises well-known scholars and experts; we must improve and innovate our curricula that cultivates future business leaders in the global economy; we must provide a platform that facilitates interaction among scholars and practitioners; and we must strengthen the alumni network that connects the College and our graduates for life.

Over the years, we have been blessed with unwavering support by all stakeholders, from students to faculty members, from business partners to general public, and from the local community to our international friends. At this critical moment of our time, we need your support more than ever. Together we will turn challenges into opportunities, dreams into realities, adding a new chapter of Antai’s fabled history.
