Faced with the rapid market changes and the large amount of information, effectively grasping and managing data has become a common issue for managers. For an enterprise to be globally successful in twenty-first century Taiwan, the key is to not only be innovated in technology, but effective in managing and using data. IM was established in response to the shortage of information professionals in Taiwan. We aim to nurture students who possess both a global and local perspective to satisfy information application, service, and management demand in Taiwan. Cultivating students to transform from “T-type” single talents to multi-talented “π-type” people by emphasizing on both IT skills and business practice. Taking the current industry demands into account, IM not only nurtures IT management talents, but also promotes academic research in central Taiwan strengthens the competitiveness of local industries related to IT.
