Since the " Reform and Opening up", UIBE witnessed unprecedented development and expansion, and in 1984 was renamed the current name, University of International Business and Economics. In May 1997 UIBE was put on the list of " Project 211" universities of the first batch, a governmental program aimed at turning about 100 Chinese universitiesinto exceptionally world renowned high-quality academic institutions in 21st century. In the year of 2000, UIBE has become one of the state universitiesunder the leadership of the Ministry of Education, and in June of the same year it merged with China Institute of Finance, from then on, it has become one of the leaders not only in the studies of economicsand business management, but also in finance. [http://www.uibe.edu.cn/uibeV12/gaishu/gaishu.htm] Since its establishment, UIBE was committed to make high emphasis on academic research and business practice，preparing students to work in the areas of business, economics, finance，foreign trade，foreign languages etc.
The University main areas of study are related to
business, economics, foreign languages and finance, including trade, managementor commercial law. It absorbed the former China Institute of Financein early 2001.
The university has traditionally had a reputation as a training ground for top civil servants in the (previously known as "Ministry of Foreign Trade", "Ministry of Foreign Economic Relations and Trade" and "Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation") under the
Chinese government. Until 1989, graduates went to work either for the Ministry or the many state-owned import & export companies throughout the country. Though Peking Universityand Tsinghua Universityare much more comprehensive in their choices of majors and graduate programs, UIBE has more economists, including those with PhDs. In order to get tenure, economists at UIBE now must earn a degree from the West or from Japan.

Chinese languagecourses, as well as other courses taught in English, by a vast array of professors from Beijing's top universities.
