The GMBA approach to “Globalization” goes beyond merely making students the most effective managers working with multinational corporations to allowing students to understand and work effectively within the unique cultural, legal and regulatory constraints that each market presents. This experience helps graduates maintain the profile of an ethical corporate citizen whether remaining in Taiwan or working internationally after graduation.

The full-time Global Master of Business Administration program at the National Chiao Tung University broadens your world view. The two-year curriculum was developed to equip professionals with the skills necessary for transitioning to a managerial role in their current industry or when pursuing a change of career path. Grounded in real-world experience, the GMBA includes an internship requirement that students must complete to be eligible for graduation. 

Class size is limited to 20 domestic students and 20 international students, ensuring class sizes that promote close group work, building networks and friendships that open access to global organizations and top business leaders internationally.
