History and Goals

Founded in 1997, the College of Management provides an environment to cultivate and produce outstanding management personnel so as to meet the needs in Taiwan. Currently, it is organized into six academic departments and two research centers: Tourism, Information Management, Economics, Finance, Public Policy and Management, and Business Administration, Public Management Consulting Center, and Center for International Business Management and Marketing Research. All the departments offer a Bachelor of Arts program, Master of Business Administration program, and Executive Master of Business Administration program. A doctoral program of Public Policy and Management was set up officially in 2005. In addition, International Master of Business Administration has established in 2007.

Currently, the College has 96 full-time faculty members (90% with a Ph. D. degree), and over 94 percent of the teaching staff has the rank of assistant professor or above. Furthermore, there are nearly 2,758 undergraduate students and 877 graduate students.

SHU has established both faculty and student exchange programs with the following institutions: University of Wisconsin-River Falls(U.S.), Saginaw Valley State University(U.S.), Emerson College(U.S.), University of Hawaii Hilo (U.S.), Kokugakin University (Japan), Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea), and Liaoning University(China).With the exchange programs, the students gain valuable international experience that gives them an edge in today’s competitive job market.

Although the College does not have a long history, it possesses a carefully considered quality educational plan for all prospective students. We will enhance teaching resources and cultivate managerial academia overall. In order to have an excellent, internationalized and humane College of Management, management courses are designed innovatively. Besides, in an effort to cope with the trend of the world, flexibility and diversity are emphasized in the course content.
