The department is responsible for the construction and the teaching of the major of information management and information system in undergraduate education. The department is actively involved in cooperation with others, including the jointly established postdoctoral research station and doctoral program of management science and engineering, the jointly found master’s degree program of management science and engineering, system engineering, international trade (the direction of E-commerce), international business and etc.
Remarkable achievements have been made by the faculty team of the department in both research and teaching over the years. 26 national projects has been undertaken and accomplished by the department’s faculty including national 863 plan project, national natural science foundation project, and national social science foundation project. 8 awards of science and technology at provincial level or above was received, including Shanghai science and technology progress award, Ministry of Education science and technology progress award, Shanghai decision-making consultation achievement award, and China machinery industry science and technology award. 8 awards of teaching at provincial level or above was received, including Shanghai teaching achievement award, Shanghai education award, Baogang excellent teacher's award, and Shanghai excellent teaching materials award. And 30 honorary titles at provincial level or above was received, including National outstanding teacher, Shanghai model labor, technical expert of China machinery industry, oriental scholar and etc.
