Network economics is the science that studies the operation way of all kinds of network economy. In a narrow sense, the network economy mainly refers to the information and computer network as the core of the information and communication technology industry groups. In a broad sense, the network economy mainly refers to the network operation industry groups such as telecommunications, electricity, energy, transportation and so on.

Network economics trains talents with a solid knowledge of the economic theory, systematic knowledge and skills of network technology. This program trains compound practical talents with strong practical ability, adapt to the network economy environment. As "network economy" professionals, students will have to use the means of network to finish information collection, sorting and simulation and prediction, in the technical means of auxiliary use economics theory to analyze and solve practical problems.
As a cross discipline that integrates economics and network computing technology, network economics reflects a strong cross and integration in the curriculum setting. Among them, the network economics, network finance, information economics, software project management and other courses are both the basic knowledge of economics, but also related to the content of computer network technology.
2. Training Objectives
