- The School of Economics has a long history of education and research. Since 1909 when the Business Division of Fudan was established, and since 1922 when Fudan set up the Department of Economics, Fudan University has been growing its economics discipline to become a top institution in economics education and research in mainland China.
- Between 1949 and 1984, the Department of Economics split into several departments and institutes after the nationwide university restructuring, contributing significantly to the growth of China due to the large number of economics talents graduating from Fudan. In April 1985, the School of Economics was founded consisting of the Department of Economics, the Department of World Economy, the Institute of World Economy, the Institute of Population, the Institute of Prices, and the Center for Economic Studies. The first dean was Prof. Chen Guanlie, a famous finance professor. Since the founding of the school, Fudan’s economics discipline has entered a new phase of development.
- During the evolution from the Business Division to the Department of Economics and then to the School of Economics, economists at Fudan made remarkable contributions to economic theory in China and the country’s growth: Xu Dixin, Qi Qisheng, Zhu Bokang, Jiang Xuemo, Zhang Xunhua, Chen Guanlie, Song Chenxian, Hong Wenda, Wu Bolin, Ye Shichang, Jiang Jiajun, Hong Yuanpeng, and Yin Bocheng, to name a few. Focusing their attention on the combination of China’s reality and economic theory, these famous economists have made Fudan a renowned institution of economics.
- As the old saying goes, “Fireworks are handed down from generation to generation and their lives are renewed. In the new era, the School of Economics at Fudan University will further itself based on these forerunners’ achievements and continue to foster excellent economics talents for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
