Some keys to the ranking include “salary percentage increase”, “aims achieved”, “women/ international faculty (%)”, as well as “international mobility rank”.
With regards to alumni career performance, the Department of Business Management, NSYSU, calculated the “weighted salary”, which is average graduate’s salary with adjustment for salary variations between industry sectors, to be US$45,368, reflecting an average increase of nearly US$6,000 over the past three years. After three years of graduation, the salary is increased by 43% compared to their first salary after graduation. It has been observed that the performance of the alumni of the Department of Business Management has grown year after year. In terms of school diversity, the women/ international faculty, the international board, and the international students have all increased by 2 to 6 % over the past three years. The first three criteria have even reached a record high in the recent three years.
In addition, with regards to the "international course experience " criterion, which is calculated according to whether the most recent graduating class undertook exchanges, company internships or study trips in countries other than where school is based, the Department of BM, NSYSU ranks among the top 50 in the world this year.
