Jiujiang Financial and Economic College

The Jiujiang Financial and Economic College (九江财经高等专科学校) is a minor college in the north of Jiangxi province in China noted (by potential employers and by rival institutions) primarily for its low entrance requirements and the ease with which those who cannot even meet its low requirements can nonetheless be placed.

History N.B.: Much of the material in this section is adapted from the book The 20th Anniversary of the Military Supplies Finance and Economics College of the PLA. Text has been paraphrased and is not taken verbatim for copyright reasons.

Origins

In October of 1980, the 10th military meeting of the Central Military Committee eliminated the department of enterprise administration, a rear-service school of the People's Liberation Army, and replaced it with a cadre school for enterprise. On September 21, 1981, the PLA Enterprise Cadre School was established.

Development

In September of 1982, the school began its first training classes. At the beginning of 1983, the Jiangxi provincial government brought the enrollment plan of the school into line with the state plan.

In March of 1994, the National Education Committee approved the establishment of the Jiujiang Financial and Economic College, the added name Military Supplies Finance and Economics College of the PLA added in April of the same year. The two names have since been used in parallel.

Recent Events

The Jiujiang Financial and Economic College was given a green light to integrate with several other colleges in Jiujiang[?] under the name Jiujiang Institute in December of 2001. Final approval has not been forthcoming yet because of wrangling between it, the Jiujiang Teacher's College[?] and the Jiujiang Medical College[?]. It is not known when final approval will be given as the inter-campus infighting continues unabated.

Location The college is located in Jiujiang[?], Jiangxi, People's Republic of China.

Courses of Study Leadership As of 2001, the leadership of the college has rested in the following hands:

  • Huang Baoqiang (黄保强), president and vice-secretary of the CPC Central Committee
  • Cheng Yuncong (成运琮), secretary of the CPC Central Committee
  • Zhao Wenjie (赵文杰), vice-secretary of the CPC Central Committee
  • Li Yansheng (李炎生), vice-president
  • Wu Taoe (吴桃娥), vice-president

Aliases

  • The Jiujiang Financial and Economic College currently refers to itself as Jiujiang Institute (九江学院) despite its failure, as yet, to gain final approval to move to Institute status.

  • The Jiujiang Financial and Economic College often refers to itself as Jiujiang University (would be "九江大学" in Chinese) in English only to enhance its hiring prestige. It does not have permission to use that name in Chinese and is scrupulous to avoid any such usage to avoid official reprimand.

Miscellaneous Information Approximately one third of the students of this college are observed by its staff as not having passed their university entrance exams. Approximately one tenth of them did not graduate from Senior Middle School, again as observed by its staff.
