    Business economy is the best window to observe the changes of the times. Not only it is the growth history of a particular company, but more importantly, we can see the evolution of every different vertical industry, and the reform of business education and business schools also needs proactive exploration. The forum focused on the three major areas of FinTech, innovation and entrepreneurship, and automotive ecology to feel the true temperature of the Chinese economy.

    Jiang Sixian, Secretary of the Party Committee of SJTU, stated in his speech that the main feature of a first-class university is its high-level experts, scholars and scientific achievements, as well as its rich talent reserves, while a first-class company has senior industry leaders and business elites, being the subject of market, demand and investment. Innovation-driven is essentially talent-driven, and technological innovation and innovation of education model are closely related and mutually promoted. Pioneering exploration oriented to industry development practices has provided a good opportunity and platform for the transformation and development of business schools in the new era, and will also promote qualitative improvement and leap in various industries.

    On the day of the event, Jiang Sixian, Secretary of the Party Committee of SJTU, and Sun Yu, Vice President of BOC, jointly unveiled the “BOC-SJTU - BOC Intelligent Valley Training Base for Industry and Education Integration”, which serves as an industrial backup. Gu Feng, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of SJTU, and Rui Xiongwen, Vice President of Ant Financial, signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement on behalf of the two parties, launching in-depth cooperation on talent training and academic research. In addition, ACEM signed a strategic cooperation agreement with BOC Shanghai.

    Xi Lifeng, member of the Standing Committee of the Party Committee and Vice President of SJTU, stated in his speech on the afternoon of the forum that business schools should build an interdisciplinary, inter-organizational and cross-industry ecosystem, strengthen the combination of theory and practice, strengthen the feedback of industries to teaching and research, and promote the industry-university integration.

    Chen Fangruo, Dean of ACEM, believed that business schools worldwide are facing the problem that theory and practice cannot be effectively combined, and top business schools in the world have been carrying out various reforms but have rarely solved the fundamental problem. ACEM hopes to establish another knowledge-creating vertical model based on the horizontal discipline orientation: carrying out industry-oriented in-depth research, and then creating a new knowledge-creating atmosphere and healthy ecology with “crisscrossed development and unity of knowledge and action”.

    As the host of the event, Yang Jie, Secretary of the Party Committee of ACEM, suggested that business schools need to get out of the ivory tower and cooperate and interact more with industries. While redefining academics, they must serve industry practices and align with the national strategy of industry upgrade. Studying future issues and developing future leaders with future-oriented dreams is an important starting point for ACEM to explore industry research and have deeper cooperation with industries.

    As the guest moderator of the forum, Liu Shaoxuan, Associate Dean of ACEM, emphasized that the talent training in the future must be featured by a compound training model that develops both management-oriented technology talents and technology-oriented management talents. The launch of ACEM Industry Community Class will provide ACEM and its alumni with a path for deep evolution of the supply and demand pattern in a cross-school, cross-program, cross-disciplinary and cross-industry-university-research way, and through the same frequency dialogue between the industry and alumni, so as to share and build a win-win ecology and stage. It marks that ACEM’s concept of industry research is being incorporated into the curriculum system.
