Career Pathways After Graduation

The department has a team of 14 PhDs that graduated from institutions in Taiwan, the United States, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and other prestigious universities. The full-time professors have different national management knowledge and research training backgrounds. They are divided into four majors – “Marketing Services,” “Business Information,” “Human Resources and General Management,” and “Finance and Banking.” They have rich teaching and research achievements and a majority of them have practical experiences, which helps students broaden their scope of learning and international vision.

 
Private enterprise and public service professionals are recruited as part-time teachers to meet the needs of the department’s annual curriculum. Their practical areas of expertise include marketing, finance, taxation, accounting, human resources, production management, quality control, general management, etc. Students are educated by a comprehensive, in-depth, and practical pedagogy.
 
The curriculum of the department focuses on the principle of balancing theory and practice and integrates basic business management and professional courses into “3I” to develop students’ core competencies to fulfill their future career aspirations. There are four domain knowledge:
 
1. Professional knowledge: Focuses on curriculum planning in the four major professional majors – “Marketing Services,” “Business Information,” “Human Resources and General Management,” and "Finance.”
 
2. Market knowledge: Students are expected to gain a deeper understanding of the industrial market by means of “industry practices,” “case studies,” “corporate visits,” and “CEO forums.”
 
3. Cognitive knowledge: The “CEO forum,” “General Education Course,” “Corporate Ethics Course,” and “operation of student associations” are utilized for participation in various activities organized by student associations, and the department is encouraged to assist students in the development of cognitive domain knowledge.
 
4. Practical knowledge: Implement “industry-academia cooperation,” “license courses,” “internships,” and other approaches to achieve the functional goals of practical application.
 
Apart from the curriculum implemented by the college and schools to develop students’ basic abilities and literacy, our department also provides professional courses in four major areas, employs industry experts for co-teaching, and offers license courses to sharpen students’ abilities for their future employment. Finally, the senior students begin to accumulate experiences in the workplace through off-campus internships/special topics on practical application so that students can be employed in the future right after graduation. Our goal is to achieve the integration of theory and practice, seamless integration, and employment after graduation (see the figure below).
