National Chengchi University

“It was nice to take the IMBA classes because most of them were intensive and over in a short time period. I enjoyed taking classes in the International Master's in International Studies program … NCCU assigns buddies to each incoming exchange student, which is great. I had the best buddy at NCCU and we spoke often and hung out together at least once a week.” Alissa Medley, Global MBA ’13. Spent the fall 2013 semester at NCCU.

Is this program for me? 
National ChengChi

The National Chengchi University (NCCU) was established in 1927 and the Department of Business Administration was established in 1962 under a cooperative program with the University of Michigan.  The mission of this department is to be a leading research and teaching institute in Asia-Pacific region. By capitalizing on the unique geographic position of Taiwan, it strives for globalization and localization of research and teaching.

NCCU's College of Commerce offers the premier English-taught MBA program in Taiwan. The International MBA (IMBA) program has dual accreditation by AACSB and EQUIS and emphasizes the cultivation of elite professionals from around the world into future business leaders in an international environment.  The unique design of the IMBA curriculum aims to equip students with the foundational knowledge of commerce and leverage on this to provide students with a global view as well as an Asian perspective of the world's latest business trends.  

In the news: Congratulations to Team IMPACT from the IMBA Program at National Chengchi University who bested more than 20,000 entries to take home the 2015 Hult Prize at the Global Finals and Awards Dinner held in New York on September 26, 2015 bringing home USD 1,000,000 to implement PlayCares, the innovative and sustainable start-up they envisioned in the competition.

The NCCU exchange is open to all degree-seeking graduate students within the School of Business.


The Republic of China (Taiwan) ranks among the top fifteen trading countries in the world today. It also enjoys one of the highest living standards in Asia.  The island of Taiwan is located about 120 miles off the eastern shores of Mainland China, approximately central between Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and the Philippines.  Taipei City is Taiwan’s capital and the center of economic, cultural, and political activities. You will find in Taipei City a combination of tradition and modernity in its architecture styles and vigorous cultural activities.
