China Center for Economic Research (CCER) was founded in 1994. Since being transformed into the National School of Development at Peking University in 2008, the CCER has been one of the most important research centres in Peking University.
The China Center for Economic Research (CCER) aimed to institutionalize the reform of teaching and research models. Since its inception, CCER has focused on the development of a curriculum for China Economic Studies for undergraduates and nurturing postgraduate students while contributing to science-based research.
In 2004, CCER was chosen as one of the “Hundred Key Schools in Humanities and Social Sciences” by the Ministry of Education.
Since 2008, after CCER was transformed into National School of Development at Peking University, CCER has acted as a subordinate unit of the National School of Development. CCER also serves as a platform for dialogue and research for academic exchanges between foreign and domestic scholars.
Professor Yao Yang, Dean of the National School of Development at Peking University heads the CCER as its Director.
