A series of high-level reports and seminars were held, which played an important role in promoting our school's first-class construction and internationalization level.
At 3:00 PM on September 4, Professor Tan was invited to the Lecture Hall of Economic Management and gave a lecture themed “What's wrong with America? ---- Reflections on the changes of American society after the war from the perspective of system and economy”. The lecture was hosted by Professor Gong Yanping, dean of the Business School, with Professor You Daming, secretary of the party committee of the school, Professor Ren Shenggang, Professor Liu Yongmei, Professor Guan Jian, Professor Shen Chaohong and more than 100 graduate students attended this lecture.
Professor Tan mainly reflects on the social changes of post-war America from the perspective of system and economy. Starting from the election results of the United States, he systematically thought and summarized the political, economic, institutional and cultural roots of the recession and existing problems in the United States by combining his observation in the United States for over 20 years and his professional accomplishment in sociology and management. At last, the school faculty and students present consulted Professor Tan about the paper writing and got detailed answers from him.
On September 5, Professor Tan had an in-depth communication with Professor Gong Yanping, Professor Liu Yongmei, Professor Guan Jian and Professor Wei Ping on further promoting the first-class construction and internationalization level of our school. Subsequently, Professor Tan gave detailed guidance to the research results of related research teams in our school, and put forward strategically and highly operational suggestions.
