Executive Master


Department of
Innovative Information and Technology

Lanyang Campus is situated in I-lan County. The design of the core courses in Lanyang follows in the spirit of the world-renowned Oxbridge system in England, which is to facilitate a "whole person" education. To become a "whole person", the core courses provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge in humanities, sciences and business. This education is further supported by a traditional English residential collegiate system that accommodates all students and staff. With staff and faculty members in residence, a sense of "family", pastoral care and the "whole person" education" can be successfully cultivated. To optimize Oxbridge spirit, the language of instruction is English in all classes, and all local students study for one year abroad in their junior year. International students can choose to study abroad in the junior year or study in the Tamsui campus instead.

Scoring categories: academic performance, application documents and English ability.
