Nearly 12 years after the dean of the school of economic management of Tsinghua University, Qian Yingyi, 62, is going to leave this year, and the incumbent vice president of the school of economics and management is going to take over as president. It is reported that the appointment is at the stage of publicity.

The Tsinghua college of economics was established in 1984 as the mission of "creating knowledge, cultivating leaders, contributing to China and affecting the world" as the first president of Zhu Rongji.

In his book "the reform of the University", Qian Yingyi recalled: "the situation of being Dean is a little special: I was recommended by Zhu Rongji, the first president of the school of economics and management."

In June 1993, Qian Yingyi, who was taught at the Stanford University, walked into the Zhongnanhai purple Pavilion. Together with 3 other overseas Chinese economists, he exchanged the "how to use the market means to implement macro regulation" with Vice Premier Zhu Rongji, the vice premier of the State Council. At that time, Zhu Rongji was also the dean of Tsinghua School of economics and management.

Later, when Zhu Rongji was looking for the dean for the school of economics and management, he remembered Qian Yingyi, who was keen on China's economic reform. He once told Qian Ying that you had been in American University for a long time, and the Americans could not deceive you.

Qian Yingyi became the first vice president of Tsinghua School of economics and management since October 2005, and took over as Dean in September 2006.

Since he took office, Qian Yingyi has always insisted on taking the dean's identity as the basic course of economics principles for undergraduate students, and has created a set of super luxurious Advisory Committee for the school of economics and management. The series of contributions and achievements are all commended.

Qian Ying spent a lot of energy on promoting educational reform, and criticized his "short-term utilitarianism" for many times. He once said, "can you find areas that are more utilitarian than ours? But it is precisely in this most utilitarian college that we are pursuing the most utilitarian education.

For this reason, Qian Yingyi did not take a doctoral student in the college for more than ten years, did not apply for a research fund, nor did he presided over a research center, a research institute or a research institute. In explanation, Qian Ying said, "education reform is more difficult than economic reform, but the contribution to society and the country will be enormous."

From 2013, when the freshmen of Tsinghua college received a letter of admission, they would receive a list of Qian Yingyi's books: "the way back to the University" by Bock, the former principal of Harvard University, Diamond's gun, germs and iron and steel: the fate of human society, and the book of He Zhaowu, in addition to "devil economics". It has nothing to do with economic major.

The undergraduate curriculum of the College of economics and management is more "no ordinary road" - among the 140 total credits, there are only 50 credits for professional courses, 70 credits in general courses and 20 for optional courses.

At the end of 2016, Wu Jinglian, a famous economist, said in the first China Economics Prize for Qian Yingyi: "over the years, Qian Yingyi has been busy with the management of the College of Tsinghua, which has undoubtedly reduced his energy in economics, but we have harvested an educator."

In 2017, Qian Yingyi was asked by the media: "do you think you have achieved the expectations of Zhu Rongji in the past 10 years?

Qian Yingyi replied: President Zhu Rongji put forward a world-class management institute in 1994, when China's per capita GDP was only 200 dollars. We are far from the "world class". He has always been particularly high in the work of the college. Every time I report to him, some aspects of the college have been in the lead in the country, or when a certain ranking is the first, he is always not satisfied, repeatedly told me, that does not count, to be recognized first. Later, I would like to report on the work. Once I am ranked first, I will say "there is still a big gap between the first and the first".

"On the one hand, he has high expectations of us; on the other hand, he is pleased with every achievement we have achieved. He is so fond of Tsinghua and loves economics and management college. Qian Ying said.

Qian Yingyi, who was born in Beijing and his native Zhejiang, had been in the four years of Miyun. When he did not drop his books, he liked to study two subjects in mathematics and English. He recalls that his English and mathematics are "School of ridge".

In 1977, Qian Yingyi and the 5 million 700 thousand candidates of the whole country walked into the examination room to restore the first year of college entrance examination, and became one of the 818 students admitted to Tsinghua University. After graduation, he studied in the United States, received a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University, and later taught many famous universities in the United States.

Qian Yingyi and Bai Yan, who also have the background of overseas study, are "brother brothers", who have followed Nobel Economics Prize winner and Professor Eric Maskin of the Department of economics of Harvard University to study the stage of doctoral students.

Their "same door" also includes Li Daokui, Wang Yijiang, Xu Chenggang, Zou Hengfu and other famous economists. The economics circle called six of them "Ha six" because they had studied at Harvard.

According to the official website of the school of economics and management, Mr Bai received a bachelor's degree in mathematics from University of Science and Technology of China in 1983 and was awarded a Guo Moruo scholarship. After that, he won Ph. D. of mathematics at University of California at San Diego in 1988 and Ph. D. in economics of Harvard University in 1993.

In the eyes of those who had met Bai Zhong en, he was gentle and generous. Although things are arranged in a systematic way, they are sharp and sharp as long as they publish their views. During the two sessions of this year, Bai said in an interview with the media that the large and fast investment of the local government brought low investment efficiency, and also made up the investment of the market sector, making the overall efficiency negative.
