►Brief History


The College of Business and Management was established in 2012 by combining the original college of  Business and college of Management. Currently, it has twelve departments -Business Administration, Accounting, Statistics, Information Management, Transportation, Public Aministration, Management Sciences, Banking and Finance, International Business, Industrial Economics, Economics, and Insurance and an E-learining EMBA program. It has kept expanding into the current largest College of Business and Management in Taiwan with more than 10,800 students and 230 full-time faculty members.

The main objective of the College of Business and Management is to cultivate well-trained and high quality young managerial talents both at undergraduate and graduate levels for Taiwanese society, which has experienced more than 50 years of high economic growth and diversified industrial development. In the past 30 years, the College of Management and College of Business have built up a good reputation through hard working alumni in different professions of the society. The College of Business and Management focuses on systematic approaches to educating students to equip themselves with competence in problem analysis and decision making, planning and programming, budgeting and control, organizing and leadership in the professions of business administration, statistics, finance, accounting, transportation, communication, information technology, government administration, international business, economics, Industrial Economics, insurance and quantitative analysis. In addition, College of Business and Management also offers cross-department doctoral programs, English MBA programs, nine EMBA programs, and several cross-department programs subsidized by the Ministry of Education. Furthermore, the College has an agreement with University of Michigan-Flint and the University of Queensland for a co-master program. Students would be able to gain master degrees from both Universities when they complete their study. Furthermore, an EI and TSSCI indexed journal "International Journal of Information and management Sciences" published by the College is an indication of its academic excellence.

The College of Business and Management has been guided by the triple-objective in its course design and faculty recruitment: globalization, future-orientation, and information orientation. It's very active in conducting joint academic conferences with TKU's over 150 renowned sister universities around the world and short-term overseas study programs every year since 1995. The College has also devoted a great deal to establish practice-oriented courses and public speech programs by inviting key business executives as speakers around the year; hence, substantially enriching and benefiting the students beyond the textbooks. Computer and Internet facilities are available to students for their homework and practice. An academic journal is issued by every department to encourage faculty members to publish their research results. Exchanging visits and seminar programs across the Taiwan Strait with colleges and universities in Mainland China every year is the most special activity among the eight colleges in Tamkang University.

Motto and Goals

To cultivate high-quality young talents with managerial professionalism, cultural depth and global views; and to establish an everybody's dream management school.
 

►Future Development

The College of Business and Management will continue working hard toward excellent professional management education in Taiwan through research, teaching, and service, a three-in-one strategy by the faculty. It will keep attracting outstanding new faculty members. The facilities and teaching equipment will be improved along with student–faculty quality enhancement. The international and cross-strait exchange programs are also a main direction for development in the future. To match the trends of globalization, we prepare to set up a new graduate program (English MBA), which all courses will be given in English. It will provide more opportunities for students to communicate with international students, but also cultivate students with a broad mind and a new vision of international management. In the near future, the Management College will help the graduate students obtain two degrees in an efficient way. We've signed the academic corporation agreements, offering the so-called "dual Master’s degree", with the University of Michigan at Flint. Besides, we also offer a digital in-service master’s program, the so-called "E-Learning EMBA of Global Chinese Traders", which was highly approved by the Ministry of Education. The e-learning via the Internet will provide global Chinese business traders a good chance to get a Master's degree. In addition, five Executive MBA programs for the vast number of Tamkang alumni and others who have bachelor degrees will be another important development progress to obtain master degree; and four new Ph.D. programs for Business Administration, Accounting, Information management and Applied Statistics have been added and will greatly enhance the quality reputation for the College and the University as a whole.
