        Zhao Zhongxiu said that at the historical moment of the 70th anniversary of SDUFE, the students became members of Shandong University of Finance and Economics family. The university is jointly established by the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education and Shandong Province.After nearly 70 years of hard work, we already have a talent training system that integrates undergraduates, masters, and doctors, Postdoctoral Research Station in Applied Economics, 4 first-level doctoral degree authorization points—Applied Economics, Business Administration, Management Science and Engineering, and Statistics, 11 first-level discipline master degree authorization points, 20 authorized types of master’s degree, and 3 Shandong Province project-approved first-class disciplines: Applied Economics, Management Science and Engineering, and Business Administration.The overall discipline strength has placed SDUFE in the top 10 financial universities in the country, and it is movingto be recognized as a first-class financial universitywith characteristicsin the country.The university has educated more than 200,000 outstanding graduates from all walks of life, contributing to the country and local economic and social development.

        Zhao Zhongxiu has three hopes for the 2021 freshmen. He said: “First, we must cultivate the ambition of a lifetime and work for national prosperity, national rejuvenation, and people’s happiness. In the past 100 years, the Chinese Communists Party have led the people of all ethnic groups across the country to achieve a great leap from standing up, getting rich, to becoming strong.In the great new journey of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way, we must learn from history, create a future, and write a new chapter in the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.Facing the great changes in the world unseen in a century and the overall strategy of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, everyone of us need to work hard for the national progress by contributing to our nation while following the trend of the times. Second, we need to establish ideals and beliefs with a heart of worrying about the country and the people, patriotism and love for the people, noble character, unity of morality and behavior. We’re supposed to light up the sky of humankind with benevolence and kindness. Besides, we need to strictly restrain our own ethics and behavior, be brave to take responsibilities and be enthusiastic for public welfare. Third is to master the current major. Only by seeking the truth and practicing the true skills can we realize the dream of life in the temper of youth. Zhao Zhongxiu hoped that students will adapt as soon as possible and realize the transition from high school to university, from passive learning to active learning. All of the freshmen must work hard every day, think in-depth, ask frequently, analyze problems from different angles, and make efforts to maintain a keen insight, judgment, and perception.Besides, all the freshmen should learn to recognize, know themselves and others, get close to the world, respect and understand differences, maintain self-discipline and make pursuing excellence as a habit.”


        Zhao Zhongxiu also wished students to have a diversified and colorful life in SDUFE and strive to grow into pioneering talents of the era who can shoulder the important task of national rejuvenation.

        The heads of all schools and related functional departments, teaching auxiliary units, representatives of alumni, and teacher representatives, deputy secretaries of the party committees of all schools, heads of the academic affairs office, 2021 undergraduate instructors, and 2021 undergraduate freshmen attended the ceremony.This grand ceremony was watched by alumni and parents of students via live webcast.
