Our university ranked TOP 18% among the 1, 106 undergraduate colleges covered by innovation and entrepreneurship competition, ranked fourth among universities in Liaoning Province, and first among private universities in Liaoning Province!
After the overall analysis, data mining, multi-party investigation of domestic innovation and entrepreneurship competitions, the report finally selected 22 items of national innovation and entrepreneurship competitions in universities, including the "internet plus" College Students' Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition and the "Challenge Cup" College Students' Entrepreneurship Plan Competition.
