With one of the newest and best faculties in the Taiwan, our students develop not only a deeper set of skills but a broader perspective of the role of information technology and management in the world.

  We believe in the value of our uniquely collaborative community and provide an abundance of leadership opportunities, team roles, clubs and cohorts to foster a culture of collaborative learning and study.
Global hub for local industry
  We believe in integrating the energy of Taiwan and around the world into our academic culture. We leverage the proximity to business and the cultural riches of South-East Asia in creative and innovative ways.


In addition to general information management courses as well as information systems, there are three main tracks in our programs: (1) information management and applications, (2) e-commerce, and (3) information systems. The information management and applications track emphasizes on how to apply information technology (IT) efficiently and how to reach IT-based solutions for problems faced by organizations. The e-commerce track emphasizes on how to design and implement a successful e-commerce business website and participate in national competitions to gain real-life experience. The information systems track emphasizes on building modern fundamental information technology skills and serves as foundation to both information management and applications as well as e-commerce tracks.
