About the University
DUFE serves as a multidisciplinary, teaching-and-research-oriented university focusing on economics, management, law, arts, and science. It offers full-time as well as part-time education programs.
DUFE is located west to Xinghai Park, a state-level scenic spot in Dalian. It has been well-known for the tranquility and beauty of the campus since the mid-1990s.
A center for trade and finance, Dalian is one of China’s most prosperous cities, attracting top international companies such as Microsoft, Nokia, HP, IBM, and Intel, as well as major banking, insurance, and security companies. Dalian is also a popular tourist destination, with a mild climate and beautiful beaches – the most visited in China. Described as ‘a city built in gardens’, visitors can enjoy leisurely walks through the city parks, lawns, and civic squares, taking in an array of fountains and gardens. Dalian is also home to three zoological parks, including Shengya Ocean World.
If you’re a fan of the sport, go and see Dalian Shide – the most successful football team in China, having won the Chinese league eight times. And at weekends, get out of the city and explore the Binhai Road – 22 miles of scenic coastline with many beautiful beaches along the way.
As part of your orientation programme, you will be shown how to use the libraries and locate key resources. DUFE has two libraries, with more than 1.25 million books and 220,000 ebooks in both Chinese and English.
The university subscribes to over 1,500 journals and you will have access to thousands of e-journals. There are a number of special collections and reference books as well as electronic touch-screen newspaper-reading machines accessing Chinese and international newspapers. There is a range of open access IT suites with high-speed internet access, quiet spaces set aside for private and group study and a video room with high-quality audio-visual technology.
You will have access to free IT training and IT technical support and more than 160 computers, open 13 hours every weekday, and on Sundays in the cybercafé. There is also campus-wide, high-speed wifi access available for every student.
Taking education quality as the lifeline of the development, DUFE gives constant priority to fostering qualified professionals. For this reason, DUFE integrates both in-class teaching and extra-curricular learning to make appropriate training schemes for students so as to enhance students’ social responsibility, professional dedication, and sense of community. In the past decade, the employment rate of DUFE graduates has kept above 95 percent. Noticeably, many of DUFE graduates hold important positions in various kinds of organizations ranging from financial institutions, business companies to government agencies; many of them have been promoted to leadership positions in administrative departments.
