The academic curriculum is taught in ordinary classrooms, and the computer courses are taught in large computer classrooms. Each classroom supports each other, reducing space waste and increasing efficiency.

◆ Curriculum Planning
 
The curriculum is generally divided into three categories: basic courses, professional courses, and advanced management courses. The professional courses adopt the principle of placing an equal emphasis on theory and practice, with particular emphasis on the following four directions – general management (including organization and human resources), marketing, finance and banking, and business information. Coupled with the combination of theory and practice, “3I” will also be incorporated into the curriculum to develop students’ core competencies for their further employment, which can be divided into five major domain knowledge:
 
 (1) Professional knowledge: In addition to the four major professional courses, three degree programs – “Financial Management Course,” “Marketing Planning Course,” and “International Business Course” – are implemented to strengthen students’ professional knowledge.
 
 (2) Cross-domain knowledge: The International Business Course works with the Department of Applied Foreign Languages to focus on international business and trade-related knowledge and professional training on the application of foreign languages in the business domain. There are three cross-disciplinary mini-programs that were set up to enhance students' cross-domain knowledge and practical skills, including “Business Wisdom Application,” “Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP),” and “We Media Marketing.”
 
 (3) Market knowledge: Students can have a deeper understanding of the industry and the market through special topics on industry practice, enterprise case studies (question-oriented learning), collaborative teaching by professionals and professors, corporate visits, CEO forums, etc.
 
 (4) Social knowledge: Students are able to develop their humanistic qualities and ethics by using the general education curriculum, corporate ethics courses and series of lectures, as well as the activities organized by the department and student associations. 
 
 (5) Practical knowledge: Implementation of industry-academia collaboration, license training courses, various off-campus internships, the Ministry of Labor’s work and study plan, industrial-academia collaboration classes (in the continuing education section), and other approaches of acquiring practical skills are used in order to integrate theory and practice and to get students employed as soon as graduation.
