The Department of Finance was established in 1985 to fulfill the demand for highly-trained finance and investment specialists at a time when Taiwan had emerged as a leading regional economic center. The department aims to equip students with the analytical skills and theoretical knowledge in finance essential to tackling current real-world problems.
The undergraduate program emphasizes on four areas of specialization: corporate finance, financial institutions, portfolio management, and international finance. Students receive thorough training in both the theory and practice of finance through courses that combine knowledge with an intensive exposure to data analysis, software applications, communication skills, and financial ethics.
The MBA and Executive MBA programs are built on four pillars: data analysis with Excel/VBA and open source tools, industry analysis, financial analysis, and wealth management. Students learn not only from faculty members engaged in a broad program of research, but also from professionals in diversified fields as co-teachers who bring the intelligence of practical financial experience to classes. Another aim of the program is to instill in students an ability to identify and resolve the financial and ethical issues they will face in their future work
Graduates excel in a wide variety of jobs at corporations, banks, securities firms, and financial institutions. Some have developed careers in government department and education industry, while others have further pursued their advanced studies locally and overseas.
