The “Career Growth Path” Activity mainly invited professional managers who succeeded rapidly after graduation to analyze their career growth path for our students, so that our students can “know themselves, know the society, show themselves, manage themselves and realize themselves”. The “Enterprise Growth Path” Activity mainly invited successful entrepreneurs to share their successful experience of running enterprise and analyze the management functions of “Human Resources, Finance, Material, Production, Supply and Sales”, so as to stimulate college students’ consciousness of starting business and passion for starting business, and strengthen their purposefulness and self-consciousness of study.

The “Academic Growth Path” Activity was the beginning of the Activity Series. The first lecture was given by He Xiaoming, Associate Professor of Department of Business Administration. The title of the lecture was FIRM RESOURCES, COMPETITIVE ACTIONS AND PERFORMANCE: INVESTIGATING A MEDIATED MODEL WITH EVIDENCE FROM THE IN-VITRO DIAGNOSTICS INDUSTRY.

In the lecture that lasted over an hour, He Xiaoming expatiated on the stages of topic selecting, data collection, model building, paper forming, periodical selecting and multiple modifications, and gave a systematic explanation of the paper. Teachers and students present at the activity showed great interest in the “Resources→ Competitive actions→ Performance” model, and had a deep communication on the related problems of the model and their confusion about writing academic papers.
