As the program is designed to educate full-time working employees, placement is not an issue in this program. However, the target students have strong need to acquire basic skill and knowledge and update these skills and knowledge set to the level of practical implementation.

- Students should acquire cutting -edge knowledge, analytical abilities, and practical application skills in general management through coursework and thesis and/or workshops reports.
- Students should improve students’ logical reasoning ability and their capacity to apply knowledge in solving management problems by conducting case-analysis in class and writing a practice-oriented workshop report.
- Students should acquire required knowledge to improve the management strategies and utilize the knowledge fully.
- Students should be capable of understanding the importance of corporate ethics and applying the standard of ethics to their decision-making.
