Features

1. Stemming from the framework of economic theory, the department also attaches importance to financial application

To meet the economic development and job market demands, the content of the main curriculum courses combines the fields of economics and finance, which in turn focus on industrial economic analysis in conjunction with investment portfolio. As for elective courses, they are divided accordingly into two tracks--industrial economics and finance—to nurture financial professionals with a sense of economic pulse.

2. Emphasize the cultivation of data processing ability

In response to the era of big data, the Department of Economics and Finance further incorporates the training of information technology on top of the foundation of econometrics and software packages to increase students’ ability to process and analyze big data to meet the demands for financial technology talent.

3. Stress the development of the last mile (stage)

To enable students to keep abreast of the dynamics of the job market, our department promotes the development for the last mile, which enhances the effort to help students to pass license exams through holding on-campus exams and offering practical courses with professional teachers, to sign up co-op agreements, and to set up internships. These measures assist students to gain in-field experience and competitiveness.

4. Thesis writing

The Department of Economics and Finance requires students to write a graduation thesis in the form of collective team work advised by a faculty member. Through the process, not only can the students combine theory with empirical events, but also foster the capacity and mindset for continued learning, communication, and coordination.
