ABOUT APIBM

  The original idea underlying the establishment of the Department is to accommodate the development of regional economy and the changes of the industrial and business

environment. We aim to train students to become professional management personnel with cultural awareness needed to work effectively in the fields of Asia-Pacific economy and overseas investment & management, helping them develop problem-solving skills, maintain sensitivity to environmental changes, and obtain practical experience. With rigid and professional training, the students are expected to have an international perspective and the ability to manage international corporations. The Department provides four groups of courses:
