Taiwan Tech is the frontrunner of internationalization within Taiwan's higher education institutions, with more than 300 partner universities in 55 countries all over the world. The regional focus is on continental Europe, particularly Germany and France, East Asia (Japan and Korea), and South-East Asia (Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia).
Every year, the SOM sends about hundred students overseas on student exchange, and receives an almost equivalent number incoming students.The courses offered by the SOM departments have been by the far the most attractive choice for incoming exchange students, with about 45% of the international student mobility on campus happening within the SOM.
Popular outbound choices are Germany, Spain and Austria, where Technical Universities (TU) and Universities of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschulen) have proved to be attractive for our students. European students choose the SOM and Taiwan Tech for our high academic standards, but also for Taiwan's reputation as a safe and liberal country that protects privacy and freedom of speech.
Upon attaining dual international accreditation, the SOM managed to sign several collaboration agreements with overseas institutions and organizations, such as the Waseda Business School, Nagoya University of Commerce and Business in Japan, IESEG and Excelia Group (formerly La Rochelle) in France, the MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business in Italy, the Heilbronn University Graduate School in Germany, and Groupe ISCAE in Morocco.The SOM als offers three Dual Degree programs with partner schools in Australia, Germany, and Japan that allow students to deepen their education and earn an additional, internationally recognized degree.
