This move was mirrored by other major universities in the east of China who relocated their operations to Western China during that time. In 1946, the Chengdu branch of Kwang Hua University formed an independent private university called Chenghua University. After 1952, the university became a public school and was renamed and restructured several times until it received its current name, Southwestern University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE), in 1985. In 1995, SWUFE became a Project 211 University, in 2011, SWUFE was listed as 985 Innovative Platform for Key Disciplines Project University
