238_2c1c97b0.jpg    The Department, established in 1984, has developed traditions of being democratic and progressive, nurtured by the highly regarded scholastic environment of National Tsing Hua University. Being located in the heart of Taiwan’s hi-tech industry, we have close collaborations with the Industrial Technology Research Institute, Hsinchu Science Park, and world famous private companies. Hence, our students have excellent opportunities to cultivate networks for their career development. The department currently has 23 full-time faculty members, all received PhD degrees from internationally renowned universities. Each faculty is fully committed to rigorous teaching as well as research. Engaged in a congenial and cooperative atmosphere, our faculty members not only actively pursue their own research, but are also involved in collaboration with colleagues and external scholars. The department has shown strength in various areas including econometrics, industrial organization, institutional economics and international economics. While the faculty works in diverse fields, a common characteristic of their research is the application of frontier theoretical and quantitative tools to the analysis of important practical issues, resulting in publishing articles in well-known internationally journals.

    The department moved to the College of Technology Management since 2005. Except for typical core courses, starting from 2009 our students are required to take courses with business perspectives, including Financial Management, Management, Accounting, and Commercial Law. To further enhance job opportunities of undergraduates, the department offers the “International Management Practice” program, and Marketing, Financial Markets, Futures and Financial Derivatives, and Economic and Business Law. We believe that the reorganization can motivate our faculty members to create novel economics research. It also provides our students in economics and management a solid foundation for general understanding of the world.
