The department of Information Management was established in 1998. In the same year, we introduced an undergraduate program that granted admissions to approximately 50 students each year. The graduate program, awarding the M.S. degree, was established in 2000 to meet the growing need of professionals. This program aims to provide multidisciplinary training in both Information Technology (IT) and management. In 2003, the admissions to undergraduate program grew to 100 students per year. In the same year, the professional graduate program in Executive Management Information Systems was set up to cultivate mid- to high-level officers or executives to enter the industry. Both theoretical knowledge and practical training are provided in this professional graduate program.

I have spent five years studying in the Department of Information Management. It's the place which changed my business outlook, structured my thinking process, and provided a solid base for me to stand out in my career. Thanks to the teachers, they gave me a good environment to study and conduct research. I particularly want to thank my advisor, Chun-Yi Lin, for his support and encouragement. I really appreciated his guidance.
The department’s educational goal is to “train and support future IT-professionals by providing solid theoretical training and hands-on practice opportunities, with a view to building integrated information systems that may serve in business, industry, and medicine.” With emphasis on the combination of “information technologies” and “management theories,” students are required, before graduation, to participate in the development of innovative and integrated software systems. It is our expectation to see students to apply what they learn in class to real life.
Number of students and teachers：
At present, there are 20 full-time professors, and about 450 undergraduate and postgraduate students, with 22.5 student to faculty ratio in this department.
