oThe Department of Business Administration (DBA) offers several programs at undergraduate level, i.e. a four-year Bachelor's program, a two-year Bachelor's program, and a short sub-degree certificate program with 18 credits.

Currently, these programs do not accept international applicants.The following brief description of our four-year Bachelor'sof Business Administration (BBA) program provides an insight into the program stucture and our educational goals. An understanding of the knowledge and skills, that our students will be equipped with upon graduation, can serve as an orientation for prospective international students. Students who wish to join the Master's programs offered by the DBA are expected to have obtained an undergraduate education of similar depth and scope.

The curriculum of the BBA program offers a solid training in the foundations of business studies, such as calculus, statistics, accounting, different areas of management studies etc., but aso responds to new developments in business, by including courses on technological innovation or Artifical Intelligence applications into the program.
To ensure that theoretical knowledge is combined with hands-on practice, practical courses in the third and fourth year of studies are incorporated into our program.

Furthermore, the program includes a range of free electives, so that students may broaden their horizons and align their studies with their personal interest and strengths.
Students are also encouraged to do off-campus internships as free electives in designated companies or institutions.

Program Structure 

The BBA provides a solid undergraduate business education that combines obligatory core courses (67 credits) with electives and practical courses. In the first two years of the program, students with be equipped with a solid theoretical foundation in Business Administration, i.e. basic courses like calculus, statistics, introductions into economics and management and others have to be taken during the first four semesters. Obligatory courses in the first two years also include General Courses (34 credits), such as English courses, Physical Education, and Liberal Studies, which are part of the undergraduate education at Taiwan Tech. In line with Taiwan Tech's commitment to University Social Responsibility (USR), undergraduate students are required to earn one credit through an USR project as part of the Liberal Studies Courses (16 credits).
Our curriculum also allows for individual choices through free electives (23 credits), i.e students can choose any courses - including foreign languages  - offered by Taiwan Tech and its alliance universities, NTU and NTUST. As part of a well-rounded business education, hands-on training through Practical Courses (4 credits), which can be internships or practical projects, are scheduled for the third and fourth years of studies. The DBA encourages students to do off-campus internships with recognized companies and institutions for which a maximum of 9 credits can be earned (counting as free electives). Regarding the choice of companies/ institutions, length of internships, the  number of credits that can be earned etc., university-wide regulations are in place.
