School of Economics
The The School of Economics at Renmin University of China (RUC) was established in the year of 1998, which combined the department of economics, the department of international economics and the institute for economic research as a whole. The history of the school could be traced back to 1946, when the North-China United University, the predecessor of RUC, set up the department of finance and economics, which was renamed as the department of economics in 1947. After the University was renamed as RUC, the department was restructured in 1956, with the addition of world economics section in the next year. Professor Song Tao held the post of the head of the Department and then the honorary head. Professor Wu Dakun led the world Economics section. Currently, Professor Yang Ruilong has been serving as the dean for the school of economics.
School of Finance
The School of Finance, one of the oldest schools in Renmin University of China, dates back to 1950 when its forerunner – the Dept. of Public Finance & Credit was founded. Early at that time, the School of Finance had established itself as an intellectual powerhouse already. After the reconstruction of Renmin University in 1978, the School set up its Dept. of Public Finance under which there were teaching and research sections on public finance, finance and accounting. And later the teaching and research section of international finance was also added in. From then on the School has gained huge progress and adapted itself to meet the country’s needs for economic construction, social development and scientific advancement.
School of Statistics
The root of the School of Statistics goes back to 1950 when the discipline of statistics was initially set up in Renmin University of China (RUC). Two years later, the Department of Statistics was founded, which indicated the emergence of such departments among economic disciplines, and in July 2003, the School of Statistics was officially approved by RUC. In recent years, we have been actively forging the combination of statistical theories with their applications, and expanding the area of statistical teaching and research. The Center for Applied Statistics, one of the key research institutes for the Humanities and Social Sciences in China, was also founded in the School of Statistics. By so far, it holds programs for doctors’ degree in the majors of statistics and risk management & actuarial science, programs for masters’ degree in the majors of statistics, probability & mathematical statistics, risk management & actuarial science and epidemics & biostatistics, and a postdoctoral program in applied economics.
