Mission

Given the rapidly and dramatically changing business environment, current business knowledge and management theories are quickly becoming obsolete. Our mission is to educate and nurture business professionals who not only possess up-dated management theories and concepts but also implement them at various business scenes.

The immersion of theories and practices is an essential policy in our course. In addition to a variety of important subjects, we provide several field-based learning programs so that students can try to carry out their business knowledge in the real business arena.
