Nowadays, learning Chinese is a huge advantage for those who aspire to work in multinational companies in any part of the world. Taiwan is absolutely the best place to learn Chinese, and the GMBA program also offers students tailor-made Chinese language training programs through their study in Taiwan. Here, international students will experience a democratic, modern society rooted in one of world’s most venerable cultures, and populated by some of the most friendly and hospitable people on the planet.

International Program on Urban Governance (IPUG)
College of Public Affairs

Much evidence shows that there is a trend of global urbanization in that people are increasingly moving to cities worldwide, in particular in China and Asia. For example, in 2007 the number of people living in cities in the world for the first time exceeds that residing in rural areas. This process of rapid global urbanization causes thorny problems in cities that are unprecedented to deal with. Together with worldwide challenges, such as global climate change, city planners and managers are faced with urban problems of various scales that require innovative, effective decision skills to resolve. Put differently, the planning of cities must be complemented by the governing of cities in order for city planners and managers to work together to cope with the unprecedented urban challenges. Urban governance that incorporates plans, regulations, and administration for cities thus provides an interdisciplinary platform that helps city planners and managers to enhance their decision skills in governing cities. Therefore, the mission of IPUG is to foster global leaders in managing urban complexity to improve human settlements. The program intends to train the prospective students with the cutting edge knowledge of how cities work and how we can deal with the urban problems that emerge from the global urbanization process, and equip the students with effective decision skills in order for them to pursue a career as a city planner or city manager.

Our faculty members are distinguished scholars with various specializations in urbanization, urban and regional planning, public administration, and policy analysis and evaluation, to name just a few. For more detailed introduction of our faculty, please refer to our website:

All the courses offered by the Program are taught in English. The curriculum includes, among others, courses in urban planning, public administration and policy, real estate investment, housing, environmental planning, and public finance. All courses are designed to provide insights into urban governance from Chinese perspectives, while retaining their relevance to the current research and innovations in western countries, in particular the U. S. The prospective students are required to take 36 credit hours of courses within two years, including six credit hours of thesis, as the fulfillment of the Master of Urban Governance. In order for the students to learn more about how cities are governed in Chinese perspectives, a workshop course is offered by the Program so that the students can participate in real urban governance situations in the Taipei metropolitan area.
