Chengchi the place for EMBA
National Chengchi University was ranked the top choice to study the executive master's business administration (EMBA) program, beating the two-year titleholder National Taiwan University (NTU), according to survey results released yesterday.
EMBA courses are aimed at business executives and have become a popular field exploited by a growing number of universities, said the third annual report by Cheers Magazine (快樂工作人雜誌).
National Chiao Tung University ranked second on the list, followed by NTU, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, and National Central University -- which ranked joint third.
Three-fourths of the polled executives said they plan to attend EMBA courses to learn business operations in different fields, while 48 percent said their priority is to build connections.
