The goal of Department of Data Science and Engineering Management is to be a leading academic department in cultivating data managers and professionals who possess up-to-date training and frontier knowledge in the areas such as information systems and electronic commerce, decision making and optimization, as well as neuro-management. The department is established in July 2016, in response to dramatic changes and great demand for talents to meet the arrival of the era of data. The history of the department can be tracked back to 1979. In that year, Zhejiang University established the first department of management science in Mainland China, and enrolled the first generation of graduate students. Later on, in 1986, the management science and engineering doctorate was established, which became one of the very initial doctoral programs in this discipline in the country, soon followed with the built of post-doctoral research station in 1998. In 1999, the management science was approved to be a key discipline of Zhejiang Province, and is featured by "211 Project" & "985 Project" key construction disciplines of Zhejiang University. Based on the rapid development, the discipline was approved as a national key discipline in 2007, and was ranked as NO. 2 in the evaluation of National Ministry of Education in 2012.
