The Department of Business and Management, founded in 2000, is responsible for disseminating the spirit of business management of Formosa Plastics.

With regards to setting its educational goals, the department is working towards the educational goal of "nurturing management talents who meet the technical requirements of the industry, possess the attitudes of being industrious and honest, and have the basic and specialized knowledge in both theory and practice." The department is cultivating a new generation of talents, who are trained in theory and practice, technology and humanity, and are adaptable at both home and around the world.
Educational Goals
The academic goal of our department is to fulfill the actual requirements for managerial talents of the domestic industries, using the unique management mechanisms and business philosophies of Formosa Plastics as the blueprint for cultivating students’ business managerial talent along with giving them a broad management perspective.
