It was the first Master’s Program in the university, and was administered by the College of Management. In 1999, in response to the Ministry of Education’s policy to support the nation’s growth and future development needs, an additional work placement Master’s Course was added and administered by the doctoral program, with the aim of providing high-level training to managing directors in the business community. CJCU thus became the first private university in southern Taiwan to establish a doctoral program, gaining expertise in academic research into management issues. In 2006, the work placement Master’s Class was renamed the “Executive MBA Class” (EMBA), a change approved by the Ministry of Education. And since 2007, the EMBA has been administered by the College of Management, specializing in high-level management personnel training and academic research. Through hard work and strong management skills, the institute’s directors have implemented a system which has achieved a high level of expertise in such areas as teaching and student affairs, academic research, and paper presentations. As the only doctoral program in the CJCU, a unique atmosphere has formed in the GSBOM, where the research culture is strong, organized,and cohesive, and the experiences of graduate students are well respected. The institute also strives to maintain a strong and stable learning environment for Master’s and Doctoral programs’ students, making the overall academic experience a harmonious one. Scale At present, the GSBOM has 4 Master’s Program classes, with a total of 54 registered students, and has 7 Doctoral Program classes, with a total of 34 registered students. The total number of students of the GSBOM is 88. Faculty The GSBOM is committed to providing a complete teaching environment which cultivates business management and research professionals who have professional knowledge and abilities, creative thinking skills, good characters, and an international perspective. The current teaching team includes nine full-time teachers (four professors and three associate professors), seven part-time teacher, and more than ten supporting teachers from different departments, with the entire faculty holding doctorate degrees. These individuals represent a board range of academic and professional skills. Facilities We currently provide a business management automation technology laboratory, two study rooms for MBA program students, a study room and a seminar room for PhD program students, and two large professional ladder classrooms for different uses in research and teaching.
