Words from the Chair
Greeting to all students, I would first like to welcome you all to join the extended family of the Department of Economics and Finance!
The Department of Economics and Finance, formerly Department of Economics, has existed for over 25 years. Our alumni have been prosperous in various sectors at home and abroad, especially in the financial sector (including banking, securities, and futures and insurance trades), which accounts for 50% of the total employment of our graduates. Upholding Ming Chuan’s “one key concept expressed three ways” and “attending to all students with parental care, support, and guidance” principles, we aim at cultivating economic and financial professionals with global vision, econometric and information application ability, problem-solving capacity, team spirit, and humanitarian hearts, to be able to cope with international competition and information technology developments, and to excel in the dynamic economic environment.
In order to focus more on financial training on top of the foundation of economic theory, our elective courses are divided into industrial economics and finance tracks to foster financial professionals with analytical ability in industrial economics. In addition, to cultivate cross-disciplinary talents, we offer financial technology and e-commerce focused course programs along with financial economics and banking, to embrace the evolution of technology in the far-reaching Internet and big data era. We expect that, through the new course and program design, the Department of Economics and Finance will continue to nourish financial professionals with network creativity and application competence, so that all students will have a rewarding experience and reach their full potential.
