From 2010, the freshmen and sophomores of Beihang University began to use the new campus. Since 2011, School of Economics and Management in Beihang University tried to implement a new Monitorial System-the Mentor Program. The program focuses on the freshmen adjustment and builds a sophisticated management structure, based on the practical courses. Using a close mentor mode, it covers all freshmen by setting up moderate mentor groups. The grid management and meticulous guidance speed up the freshmen adjustment to university life, enhance their professional identity and improve their comprehensive ability. With the successful practice over 5 years, the program has explored a new path for talent cultivation. It has been widely recognized by the students, and a unique "family" culture emerged thanks to the program.
