In 2003, the Department of International Business at the Tamsui Campus, Tamkang University, launched a four year, exclusively English-based lecturing program as part of the university’s policy of promoting globalization in education. The program provides undergraduate students with theoretical, practical, and specialized knowledge in the field of international economics and international business.

After a thorough evaluation and a consequent series of improvements, the program was extended to accept foreign bachelor’s students starting from 2006. Now, foreign students join local students in a friendly and multicultural learning environment. More than 85 foreign students from 23 nations are currently enrolled in this pioneering degree program. As added incentive to take part in the degree program, scholarships are offered by the Office of International and Cross-Strait Affairs to those who display outstanding academic performance.

Courses offered cover all those that are required to become a specialist for working in international business. The courses are taught by full time professors and industry experts. Faculty members possess Ph.D. qualifications in international economics, international business, or international trade laws. All the courses of the program (100%) are instructed in English. The major courses of the first two years of study focus on the fundamental theories related to international business. The Junior Year emphasizes international marketing, international business management, international financial management, and international economics. The fourth year curriculum highlights the features of the development of international business in practices.The department has also established affiliations with local companies to offer foreign students practical training opportunities to enhance their learning.

The Tamsui campus provides a variety of extracurricular activities organized by student groups, as well as leading edge facilities, such as a world class library, gymnasium, and art center. Students may choose to join a student association and work with fellow students to achieve mutual goals or hone their skills in an area in which they are interested. Moreover, the Office of International and Cross-Strait Affairs holds numerous Chinese festival celebrations throughout the year, allowing foreign students to experience the local culture.
