In the past 30 years of China’s reform and opening, 21 universities and organizations, including Fudan University, and thousands of institutions at home and abroad, are committed to learning, discussing and refining the essence of management in ancient and modern China and abroad. After more than 30 years of exploration and research, led by Prof. Su Dongshui, the chief professor of Fudan University, these institutions created an emerging management discipline, the Oriental Management, which was built on the basis of “3-Xue” (Chinese Management, Western Management and Overseas Chinese Management), and then an innovative theoretical system of “3-Wei” (Putting People First, Regarding Morality As Priority, and Conducting Oneself to Serve Others), “4-Zhi” (State Governance, Business Governance, Family Governance, and Personal Governance), “5-Xing” (Practice of Humane Orientation, Practice of Human Heartedness, Practice of Interpersonal Connectedness, Practice of Strategy Implementation and Practice of Talent Development) and “3-He” (Unity, integration and Harmony) formed. Oriental Management Science takes root in Chinese management and learns from others. It combines the practice of overseas Chinese management with the practice of domestic enterprise management since the reform and opening and integrates the essence of many other subjects.
Up to now, the Oriental Management Studies have had three thousand disciples, two hundred elites, and more than one hundred publications. It enjoys a great influence and status in the domestic and international economic management academia; its research results are at the forefront of domestic and international studies. In the past ten years, experts and scholars, mainly researchers from the Oriental Management Research Center of Fudan University, led by Prof. Su Dongshui, have made significant achievements in the research of this theory.
In order to make the oriental management culture, which is based on China’s excellent culture, be easily understood, and the Oriental Management Studies can be better integrated into the world, to influence the world more, and to promote the research, education and dissemination of Oriental Management, since 1997, the International Federation of Management Scholars Association (IFSAM) Committee of China, the Research Center for Oriental Management of Fudan University, the Institute of Economic Management of Fudan University, China National Economic Management Association, Shanghai Management Education Society, School of Shanghai Donghua International Talent and other organizations hold the “World Management Forum and Oriental Management Forum” once a year, and totally hosted 22 forums successively at Fudan University, Shanghai International Studies University (SISU), Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Peking University, Hohai University, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM), Huaqiao University, Shanghai University of Engineering Science and Donghua University and other well-known universities at home and abroad. Each forum has gained the domestic and international recognition with profound and prospective topics, high-level speakers and meaningful research results. During the period, the World Overseas Chinese Management Conference (1999), the World Management Conference (1997), the ninth IFSAM World Management Conference (2008) and the 14th IFSAM World Management Conference (2018) were held, which have extensive influence at home and abroad, promoting the development, innovation and integration of oriental management into the world.
The number of participants in the forum has exceeded 10,000, and nearly 2,000 papers have been published. More than 20 symposiums named The Oriental Management Forum have been edited. The Oriental Management has developed into a unique modern discipline around the world. Lots of outstanding, promising academic elites, regulators and business operators who apply oriental management ideas to practice come to emerge. Oriental Management combines the essence of Eastern and Western management thoughts and culture, promotes the innovation of management, and makes great contribution to the development of Chinese management studies.
