Scientific research team
According to the International Business College’s development strategy on “think tank construction”, since its establishment, IBC has, with attention from the leadership, following the university’s scientific research priorities and main direction, improved the quality of teaching and research and advanced the scientific research reform and development by conducting organizational management in a planned, scientific and standardized way, thus making it possible to rejuvenate itself through scientific research, and raising its scientific research level to a new height. By March 2018, teachers of IBC had published 11 papers in SSCI journals and more than 50 in CSSCI journals, undertaken 9 state projects, 1 national natural science fund project, 1 national social science fund project and 21 provincial projects, and published more than 10 monographs and textbooks. 3 teachers of IBC won 5 provincial awards for scientific research, and the Report on the Quality of Talent Cultivation in Sino-foreign Corporative Education was commented by Vice-premier Yandong Liu.
At present the College is in charge of two research centres of DUFE, which are the Global Institute of Management and Economics and the Supply Chain Management Research Centre, as well as a college-level research center—Sino-Australia Research Centre for Internal Control and Risk Management. In order to create a better scientific research atmosphere which helps to build a cooperation platform for the teachers, the College has also established a scientific research forum, as well as a relevant system and incentives. The scientific research forum is held once a week, at which domestically and internationally famous experts and scholars, as well as the teachers at the College and University and from other colleges and universities in Dalian communicate and share with one another. In addition, on the basis of the scientific research support and encouragement policies from the University, the College has also issued Rules on Support and Reward for Scientific Research in the International Business College in order to encourage the teachers to engage in scientific research by providing assistance for them.
