About the National School of Development
With economics at its core, the NSD is a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive institute at Peking University. It’s formerly known as China Center for Economic Research, founded in 1994 by six doctors in economics, including Prof. Justin Lin Yifu, who had all returned from overseas study. The subsequent years saw the joining of more scholars and development in research and pedagogy, and in 2008 it was re-named the National School of Development.
The NSD prides itself on a strong faculty consisting of leading Chinese scholars in economics, management, political science, educational economics and demography, among others. Adhering to the PKU’s spirit of all-inclusiveness and harmony in diversity, the NSD spares no efforts to contribute to China’s advancement by being highly focused on China’s practical issues and committed to the fusion of academics and reality. In the course of over 20 years, the NSD has grown into a comprehensive institute with three major branches: pedagogy, research, and think tank, and is an integral part of PKU in its efforts to develop into a world-leading university.
