The Institute of Business and Management, originally named Institute of Management Science, was founded in August, 1970 in the Hsinchu main campus with the objective of training management experts to meet both academic and practical needs. To facilitate cooperation with business and government organizations, the Institute moved to the Taipei campus in 1979. The location is particularly convenient for business and government part-time students.
The Institute offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, a Part-time MBA degree, and a doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. Every graduate student in addition to his/her solid course work must write a doctoral dissertation or a master thesis and pass the oral examination to earn the degree. In addition, two published journal papers are required to earn a PhD degree.
The main research areas of the institute include Business Strategy, Organization & Human Resource, Marketing, Finance, Technology & Information, and Operation & Decision Science. Interdisciplinary studies are strongly encouraged. The Institute values both theory and practices.
The Institute has established good relationships with government organizations and private companies for decades through cooperation projects. A non-degree extension program (Credit Program) in business and management is offered for students seeking for reeducation.
NCTU’s College of Management has been an AACSB accredited business institution since 2007.
