NTNU is regarded by most people as a normal university responsible for cultivating teachers for junior and senior high schools. As the government changed the policies on teacher cultivation, teacher cultivation was no longer proprietary to normal schools. Amid the circumstances, NTNU began to focus on talent cultivation for all enterprises and across all disciplines while maintaining the professionalism in teacher cultivation. The trans-formation is now on track. Under the leader-ship of the President Kuoen Chang, National Taiwan Normal University has become one of the twelve members in the Top University program in Taiwan.
Our institute has a great faculty: in addition to the prestigious scholars in the field of management, we have many distinguished researchers recruited from other top universities. The institute is named “Graduate Institute of Management”, which differentiates itself from other management institutes focusing on business and enterprise administration only. With the abundance of resources in Arts, Humanities, Music, Sports and Recreations, students can learn an incomparable variety of management skills from our program. We expect our students to make the most out of our MBA program and become more diverse and creative in their management thinking.
In 2009, we started to recruit international students and provide some courses lectured in English in order to increase internationalization of our program. Since 2013, we have hired business leaders to provide lectures in our program, so as to enhance the interactions between the academic and the business. Starting from September 2013, we formally establish two concentrations in our pro-gram—“Financial Management” and “Marketing Management”. The concentrations in-tend to provide depth and breadth to students’ experience, as well as marketability for students as they position themselves for employment.
