It was agreed that the intelligent era requires business schools to produce talents who are well versed in both information technology applications and management methods. To achieve this goal, we need to make more efforts in academic training and faculty building. From the perspective of academic training, we should go beyond the limitations of a single major and strengthen the cross-fertilization of multiple disciplines; while in the construction of the faculty, we should let the teachers, especially the young teachers, give full play to their strengths in technological innovation, so as to promote the growth of teachers to a virtuous cycle of "consciousness, automaticity and autonomy".
