The School of Management Science and Engineering was established in December 2006, which was formerly the fourth dedicated program, Capital Construction Economics, that the Central University of Finance and Economics (CUFE) founded in 1984. It is an integrated teaching and research program system based on the development of four main disciplines: Investment, Construction Management, Project Management, Real Estate Management and Management Science. Relying on CUFE’s ideal background, the school has formed its own distinctive feature and advantages.
(1) Academic Departments
The School consists of 5 departments, namely Department of Construction Management, Department of Project Management, Department of Urban and Real Estate Management and Department of Management Science.
(2) Research Institutions
In addition to the general teaching facilities, the School has six research institutions, including the Investment Project Management Center, the Institute of Management Science, the Real Estate Research Institute, the Urban Economic Research Institute, the Private Equity Investment Research Institute and the Research Institute for Policy Effectiveness.
The School attaches great importance to the formation and optimization of our faculties through intensive training and effective recruitment, focusing on building a team with strong teaching and research skills, as well as international perspectives. On the one hand, the potential of the current teachers is developed by encouraging them to participate in workshops, training, further education and academic conferences; on the other hand, attracting new talents is the key to strengthen the existing team. The School is taking into consideration of a variety of aspects to guide the training and recruitment, such as the structure of the team in terms of departments, programs, academic origins, age, education backgrounds, titles and research areas. A young and capable faculty has largely been built, with essential academic origins, teaching skills, research potential, international perspectives, creativity, and ability. By the end of 2016, the School of Management Science and Engineering has 55 staffs, among whom 45 are professional teachers, 10 are administration and assistant staffs. Among the professional teachers, there are 13 professors, 24 associate professors, 34 young and middle-aged teachers under the age of 45, more than 60% of whom have more than half a year of overseas experience as visiting scholars. One of them was selected by the "New Century Excellent Talents Program”, organized by the Ministry of Education, while another 3 was selected by the "Beijing Outstanding Talent Supporting Program”. In recent years, 9 talents with doctoral degree are recruited as full-time faculties, graduated from top-ranking universities such as the Northwestern University, the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology, and the National University of Singapore. From 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2016, our faculties have been working on 23 programs for the National Natural Science Foundation of China, 2 programs for the National Planning Office of Philosophy and Social Science, and 30 provincial and ministerial level projects, securing 27.19 million yuan of funding. They published more than 50 high-level papers in SSCI journals, SCI journals, and Category-A journals of the National Natural Science Foundation of Management Science, as well as 19 academic monographs, which attracted broad attention in the academic field and have a great economic and social impact.
