I. Introduction to the Program

The International Master's Program in Global Finance is an English-taught program that was launched in the Fall semester of 2015 with a primary focus on the practical application of theories in finance, accounting, and economics to global financial markets. This degree program aims to nurture financial experts with a global perspective and a deep understanding of the functioning of global financial markets. The main themes of this master's degree program include:

(1) Fostering interdisciplinary cooperation among finance, accounting, and economics disciplines, as well as between academia and industry.

(2) Developing students' professional knowledge of the global operation of financial markets.

(3) Creating opportunities for cross-border research and internships.

※ Application Requirement

All individuals aspiring to build a successful career in the global financial markets are encouraged to apply. Applicants should hold an equivalent bachelor's degree, preferably in a business-related field; however, candidates from other academic backgrounds are also welcome to apply.

Students are required to successfully complete a total of 36 credits of coursework and submit a master's thesis to fulfill the degree requirements for the International Master's degree in Global Finance conferred by the authority of the university. Additionally, each student must participate in cultural exchange activities totaling 54 hours (1 credit hour is equivalent for 18 credit hours of instruction at the university; e.g. a language course offering 2 credits provides 36 hours). Upon passing the thesis defense examination, students will be eligible to receive a Master's degree (Master of Science in Global Finance, M.S.).


III. Degree Examination

(1) Graduate students in this degree program may apply for the degree examination only after fulfilling the required credit hours, completing the academic ethics education course, passing the thesis proposal review, finishing the master's thesis, and obtaining the approval of their academic advisor.

The application materials must be signed by the academic advisor, the program office, and the relevant department head or supervisor, and submitted to the Academic Affairs Office during the application period.

(3) Degree examination results are based on a comprehensive assessment of the thesis content and oral defense performance. A passing grade is seventy points, and the maximum score is one hundred. The final score is determined by the average score given by the committee members. However, if one-third or more of the committee members rate the student as failing, the examination is deemed unsuccessful, and only one re-examination is allowed.

(4) If a student fails the degree examination and has not completed the maximum allowable period of study, one may retake the examination in the following semester or academic year. The re-examination is limited to one attempt. If the student still fails the re-examination, they will be dismissed from the program.

(5) The composition of the Degree Examination Committee for this degree program should include three to five committee members, with at least one external member from outside the program. The academic advisor cannot serve as the convener. The number of committee members from outside the program must be more than half.

(6) Members of the Degree Examination Committee must meet one of the following qualifications:

  1. Current or former professors, associate professors, or assistant professors.
  2. Academicians of the Academia Sinica, current or former researchers, associate researchers, or assistant researchers of the Academia Sinica.
  3. Holders of a Ph.D. degree with notable academic achievements.
  4. In specialized or rare fields, or in professional practice with notable achievements in academia or the profession.

Qualifications under items 2 and 3 above require approval by the program's class affairs meeting.

(7) If plagiarism or academic misconduct is confirmed by the Degree Examination Committee, the student will be considered as having failed the examination.

(8) After the completion of the thesis oral defense, the final version of the thesis submitted before departure must include a Turnitin report as proof. The similarity index, excluding literature and references, should not exceed 20%."
