2021 SILC International Forum for Young Business Scholars
Oct 22nd, 2021, Online
SILC Business School was founded in 1994, and is the first Sino-foreign cooperative business institute established in China. Since its founding, it has gained fame at home and abroad. SILC’s foreign partner is the University of Technology Sydney in Australia. SILC focuses on undergraduate programs while also offering postgraduate and international student programs. Based on integrating the advantages of both universities, SILC has introduced first-class teaching resources and established a strict quality control system. The quality of education at SILC has always been ranked highly among Sino-foreign cooperative institutes in China. In 2006, SILC was recommended by Shanghai Municipal Education Commission as the first test unit to receive accreditation on Sino-foreign cooperative education, thus becoming not only the first Sino-foreign cooperative business school to receive such accreditation by a state authorized audit organization, but also the first school to ever pass the accreditation process. In Feb 2020, SILC passed AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and became one of the few Sino-foreign cooperative institutes that has achieved AASCB accreditation. Shanghai University became the first 211 project university sponsored by local government that has achieved AACSB accreditation. In 2020 and 2021, Business Administration major and International Economics and Trade major were successfully accepted into the state-sponsored first-rate major development project.
Shanghai University and the University of Technology Sydney have cooperated in international joint employment and recruited experienced faculties from all over the world. At present, SILC has 208 full-time employees, of whom 112 are Chinese academic staff, 23 are foreign academic staff, and 73 are administrative staff. Besides, SILC has 17 teachers sent from UTS and 20 specially-appointed professors from home and abroad. All the Chinese full-time teachers have doctoral degrees or overseas study experience. In addition, SILC has a team of visiting teachers from universities throughout the world. They give intensive classes during their visit in SILC and bring the latest trends of the relevant fields from universities of various countries.
Shanghai University enjoys beautiful working environment, broad space for career development, international platform for scientific researches and teaching as well as highly competitive remuneration package. As we are planning to hold the 2021 SILC International Forum for Young Business Scholars, we sincerely invite outstanding talents from home and abroad to join us in this forum. The Forum aims to build an academic exchange platform for domestic and foreign outstanding young scholars in management and economics fields. The Forum focuses on the international academic frontiers of various fields and disciplines of business studies to explore hot issues of business studies, promote academic exchanges and cooperation, deepen young scholars’ comprehensive understanding of Shanghai University and SILC, so as to attract and gather worldwide talents to join us for the implementation of “first-class business studies” construction program, thus to build Shanghai University to be a high-level university.
