Other practices had also been taken such as sending MPA lecturers for training, implementing dual-adviser system, employing NPO scholars, administrative officials and corporate administrators as off-campus advisers. Laborious efforts had also been made in collecting MPA education cases for case library building, learning case library experiences from the Harbin Institute of Technology, launching anonymous assessments on tutoring cases, standardizing MPA program, course titles and managements, organizing MPA Alumni Association parties, renewing the MPA joint training program agreement with the Training Center of General Administration of Customs.
