Since its establishment in 1997, the College of Management has equipped students with the training they need, including a macroscopic business perspective, to become dedicated administrators in all fields of work. The following six departments comprise the college: tourism, information management, economics, finance, public policy and management, and business administration. All six offer undergraduate and graduate programs, plus continuing education programs for Master’s degrees. A two-year continuing education program is available from the Department of Business Administration: it also offers an undergraduate program in industrial and business administration. The Department of Public Policy and Management, on the other hand, offers a Ph.D program.
To encourage interdisciplinary studies, the undergraduate program provides courses on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Electronic Business Management, Government and Enterprise Management, Financial News, Innovation and Communications.
In addition, to monitoring increasing demands for financial transparency and greater business integrity following the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis, the college set up the International Master of Integrity & Governance (IMIG) program in 2013, and will set up the Master Program of Nonprofit and Social Enterprise (NSE) program in 2015. To boost research and service effectiveness, the College inaugurated the Center for Computation and Empirical and Statistical Studies, the Center for Integrity & Governance, and the Public Management Consulting Center.
The college boasts 93 full-time instructors, 95% of which are Ph.D holders. The caliber of the faculty, together with a new building in 2006, have ensured the program’s excellence. In addition, the college engages noted scholars, veteran experts and specialists in the industry to deliver keynote speeches, enabling Shih Hsin’s grasp of the latest, international issues across its broad spectrum of learning.
