At a new height, ACEM will create a healthy and broad 'business ecosystem' with the strategy of 'pursue two streams of scholarship, one horizontal and the other vertical, and the two streams cut across each other so that knowing and doing become one'.

In 2019, the new curriculum system of EMBA 5.0 of ACEM has been officially released.
