The education of Economics and Management at Tongji University can be dated back to 1956, and Tongji was one of the earliest institutions in China to start such programs. Now the school has merged the main disciplines of economics and management and become the School of Economics and Management(SEM). For the past 2 decades, SEM has cultivated thousands of professional management talents, who are making a significant contribution to national economic development.

SEM hs collaborated with ESCP Europe Business School and ESSEC Business School(France) in undergraduate and graduate programs, with Manchester Business School (Britain) in MBA double-degree program, with University of Mannheim (Germany) in EMBA double-degree program, with Case Western Reserve University (America ) in MBA and Finances programs, and with ENPC School of International Management in SIMBA program, and Sino-US-India Global MBA Program. At present, SEM has established collaborative partnerships with 70 renowned business schools and universities in 26 countries and areas in faculty exchange, scientific research, and student exchange. SEM has already joined the EFMD and AASCB and become their official member.

SEM has made great achievements in exploring internationalization while making disciplinary developments. Now, the School is the official member of EFMD and AASCB. In 2011, the School passed the accreditation of AMBA, becoming the first business school to win 5-year valid accreditation in China. In the same year SEM ranked No.7 in Excellent Business Schools in China by the Eduniversal -- an authoritative business school ranking institution in Europe.
