Program Overview

In Taipei, Chinese culture is embroidered with the threads of Japanese, southeast Asian, and U.S. influence. Spend the semester immersed in this unique environment to explore business, media, and politics – and ways in which they’re intertwined. Select from an impressive list of courses across a range of academic areas at CIEE Taipei and our partner school, National Chengchi University (NCCU), while immersing yourself in the rich culture of Taipei – where diversity is embraced, and the community is warm and welcoming.

Options for internships are also available for students who want to gain real-world work experience at a local company. All courses are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.

AACSB and EQUIS Accreditation
Business classes offered in English are available at the National Chengchi University (NCCU). CIEE-administered classes are not included on the NCCU transcript.
