The Research Institute of Economics and Management (RIEM) at SWUFE was established in 2006 among China's other four pioneers in the promotion of modem economics and business education. RIEM dedicated to high-quality teaching and research in economics, finance, and management. RIEM enjoys a national and international reputation for its high-quality academic programs and research.
