About School of Management, Xiamen University
Xiamen University (XMU) was founded in 1921 by entrepreneur Mr. Tan Kah Kee, the revered ‘Henry Ford of Asia,’ whose motto was ‘Education is a nation’s foundation, its promotion of the people’s responsibility’. In 1920, a year before construction began, Paul Hutchinson wrote, ‘When we think of the future days, it (XMU) is one of the most encouraging things to be seen in the whole of China’.
The first Overseas Chinese (though of Xiamen origin) to start a mainland university, Mr. Tan was both visionary and pragmatist, starting XMU with a business college and a teacher’s college—the former to teach business skills, the latter to ensure education’s sustainability. XMU’s first 6 disciplines were Commerce, Law, Education, Engineering, Science and Liberal Arts. With the motto of ‘Pursue Excellence, Strive for Perfection’, XMU set three goals: ‘Pursue knowledge, Educate students, and Promote awareness of world cultures’. In 1926, XMU became one of China’s first 3 universities to offer graduate education. After President SA, Bendong adopted ‘Quality before quantity’ as XMU’s education philosophy in 1937, XMU rapidly earned the reputation of ‘Strength of the South’, and in 1952 was designated one of China’s 14 comprehensive universities.
