IntroductionNTNU’s Graduate Institute of Global Business and Strategy (GBS) is the first institute to provide "strategic management" and "global business" that gives first priority to training business professionals in Graduate school. GBS which was formerly known as "Graduate Institute of International Affairs and Global Strategy," was establish on August 1, 2008, a time when National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) transformed into a comprehensive university and established the College of Management. In response to the changes and certain policies, our department was officially renamed to "Graduate Institute of Global Business and Strategy." In 2014 NTNU’s College of Management took another step forward by restructuring itself into a professional school. The framework of the College of Management allows GBS to access to a large resource of faculty members while still providing “an international style of teaching, curriculum diversification, professional and competent teachers, and innovative industry and university cooperation". We would like to help students possess strategic thinking and the ability to develop certain tools for the future so that students will be able to compete internationally. In the ever changing industrial environment, GBS uses many different course modules to adjust to the curriculum needs. By using student-centered teaching philosophy through business management case studies, we plan our modules which allow us to have deep interactive learning and desired outcomes. Many of our alumni have been recruited as managers to be involved in Taiwan's financial services and high-tech industries which have transformed them into elite professionals
Features of CurriculumThe curriculum design of the Institute is based on methodology and the context of the environment. The four professional modules are “Technology Management and Decision Making”, “Business Environment Analysis”, “Global Business”, and “Strategy and Management”

The curriculum design is based on case studies, research methods,multivariate analysis, and data mining, and deepens the understanding of the global economy and industrial environment. Finally, students can apply their basic knowledge on taking global business courses, such as Managerial Decision, Strategic Planning, and International Business Management.
Career ProspectsAfter two years of study, our graduates can play their part in the workplace. At present, many of our graduates are employed by well-known domestic and foreign companies and financial holding companies, including TSMC, SYSTEX, CyberLink Corp., Agricultural Bank of China Limited, Fubon Financial Holdings Co., Cathay financial holdings, Shin Kong Financial Holding Co., etc. There are also some outstanding graduates who choose to pursue their Ph.D. studies at the National Chengchi University and NTNU.
