The Department of International Business (IBS) was set up in 1995 and master's degree program was the first course introduced in 1995. Undergraduate degree programs were then provided to students in 1996. Later in 1999, a doctoral degree program was introduced. In addition, NCNU IBS also created external classes in Taichung for master's degree program in 2000 and in-service education program in 2001. However, due to the changing environment in industries, the in-service education program was then transferred and managed by the College of Management in 2007 and therefore, Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) was formed. Also, the Ph. D program in Strategy and Development of Emerging Industries was later transferred and managed by the College of Management in 2014. IBS currently has 11 academic staff members and 2 administration staff. The overall students' population in IBS is 324. There are 235 undergraduate students, 47 master students and 40 Ph.D. students.
