(Correspondents: Ma Luze, Ma Yuankai) In the past few days, the Ministry of Education issued the Notice of the General Office of the Ministry of Education on Publishing 2020 National and Provincial First-class Undergraduate Specialties Construction Points List. The business administration specialty of the School of Economics & Management, Xidian University and the finance and industrial engineering specialty were included in the national first-class undergraduate specialty construction point and provincial first-class undergraduate specialty construction point in 2020. By far, there are two national and provincial first-class undergraduate specialty construction points in the School of Economics & Management. The national first-class undergraduate specialty construction points are the information management and information system and the business administration, while the provincial first-class undergraduate major construction points are the finance and the industrial engineering.
The School has been persisting in moral education and people cultivation and strengthening the people-oriented principle, and pays high attention to the construction of first-class undergraduate specialties in response to the requirements of “Double Ten Thousand Plan” for construction of first-class undergraduate specialties of the Ministry of Education. Shaanxi first-class economic and management specialty meeting was held among more than 30 provincial universities, more than 80 teaching staffs, persons in charge and department heads to exchange and discuss the experience and paths on construction of first-class economic and management majors in colleges and universities of Shaanxi Province. The teachers and students were organized to investigate Caijiapo and signed the agreement on strategic cooperation and off-campus practice education base to further deepen the integration of production and education and broaden the off-campus classroom. The internal first-class specialty construction seminars were held for many times, and the overall professional construction promotion plan was developed for shortcomings and problems existing in the specialty construction, so as to strengthen the research of teaching innovation and deepen the 2+2 talent training mode constantly. All departments actively organized and conducted the young teachers’ ability enhancement activities, shared the excellent teaching experience, and improved teachers’ teaching skills.
For the specialties that have been included in 2020 national and provincial undergraduate specialty construction points, it is a new starting point for them to become stronger and bigger with more intensive support from the School. The School will take this opportunity to continue improving the specialty planning and strengthening the specialty construction, so as to continuously enhance the professional level and reinforce the professional foundation, deepen the comprehensive professional reform and optimize the professional structure, actively develop the new specialties, transform and upgrade the traditional specialties, and to create characteristic specialty.
