In addition to good foreign language communication skills, foreign language students wishing to become an
all-round international professional manager must equip themselves with the fundamental knowledge in related functions. Incomprehension of management and industry characteristics and in lack of knowledge in human resources, organizational structure, cost, and finance will keep you away from being a professional manager.

Global Government Procurement Program

The Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) is a plurilateral agreement (effective only for GPA signatories) under the WTO framework. As Taiwan is a GPA signatory, if the amount of government procurements in the market-opening list reaches the threshold, Taiwan must allow other GPA signatories to bid for the procurement. Likewise, other signatories will open their government procurement markets to Taiwan suppliers based on the principles of reciprocity and non-discrimination. Currently, there are 41 GPA signatories, including the USA, Canada, the EU, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

The main objectives of this credit course include culture and language understanding, transnational communication and negotiation skills, understanding of related laws and regulations, and business intelligence development. If students
enrollingto this program can understand better the culture of GPA signatories, improve their communication and negotiation skills, and understand GPA related regulations, the status of the global government procurement market, and its marketing and management strategies from this program, this program can help them prepare themselves for connecting with the world in earlier times and improve their future employability.
