  • Delegates at the conference also discussed the limited aspects of students’ scientific research, for example, the proportion of students participating in scientific research is still less than the total number of students (about 7.3%); the research activities of students in various departments are uneven, research topics are mostly concentrated in the Departments of Marketing, Commerce, Finance and Banking. Hence, delegates also proposed solutions and orientation aimed at enhancing scientific research among students, and implementing activities in 2018.

    Lecturers and Students receive the prizes.

  • In general, the scientific research of UFM students in the past year achieved remarkable results over the previous years but there are still lots of shortcomings. With the above-mentioned specific orientations and solutions, it is hoped that UFM students’ scientific research will be more fruitful in order to help students apply scientific research methods to solve practical problems in life and improve their professional capability.
