According to the China University Subject Ranking (CUSR) released by China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) in December 2017, DUFE is ranked as Grade A in Applied Economics, A- in Business Administration and Statistics. Additionally, IBC’s programs in accounting, economics, finance and statistics are all included in the three top subjects.
China University Subject Rankings (CUSR) evaluate the subjects of universities and colleges in Mainland China in accordance with the Subject Catalogue of Degree Awarding and Personnel Training approved by the Ministry of Education. It is a non-profit program organized by China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Centre (CDGDC) as an independent legal entity. Commenced in 2002, CUSR has completed four rounds of evaluations as of 2017. The 4th CUSR was launched in April 2016 under the principle of “voluntary and free participation”, and there were 7,449 subjects from 513 universities and colleges applied. Combining objective calculation of data and peer review, a number of innovations have been made in the 4th CUSR in response to previous experiences. The data comes from officially released information for public use and the materials submitted by the universities and colleges for evaluation, both of which are subject to vigorous verification by CDGDC. Its results were first sorted into “grades” by the percentile of the overall score, and IBC scored within the top 70% of each subject. The result in each subject has 9 grades: A+ for the top 2% (or top 2) , A for 2%~5% (2% excluded, the same below), A- for 5%~10%, B+ for 10%~20%, B for 20%~30%, B- for 30%~40%, C+ for 40%~50%, C for 50%~60% and C- for 60%~70%. CUSR aims to assist the participating universities and institutions to ascertain the merits and demerits of their coursework and provides relevant information for national graduate education.
