Mr. Liu Lifeng said that with the development of wireless Internet, big data, analysis technology and Internet media, almost all behaviors can be described with data. Management decision-making also needs data to mine insight and guide practice. This is a very good opportunity. Students in relevant majors are hoped to continue to focus on the research industry and make contributions to the country and society that this generation should have.
