National Chung Cheng University - College of Management
National Chung Cheng University is located in Minxiong, Chiayi County, Taiwan. It is also the most distant university from Taiwan city.
It was the first university founded after the economic boom in Taiwan in the 1980s, with the aim of developing higher education in the Chiayi region.
The AACSB-accredited College of Management at National Chung Cheng University is one of the first five colleges planned by Chung Cheng University when it was established in 1989.

For Chinese language courses, the language center offers Chinese language courses without additional payment for exchange students. In this case, the first course session is mandatory in order to complete the placement test.
The CCU campus offers many services, including a food court (a restaurant and cafe), photo stores, a bookstore, a supermarket, 24-hour stores, a post office and a clinic. Other restaurants can be found off campus, about a 15-minute walk away. The price of meals is quite low, the average cost for a meal is about 80 TWD (about 2.60€).
The campus also includes a library, a computer center, a language center, student clubs, sports facilities such as a golf course, a tennis court, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and many other sports facilities.
The university is located in the central region of Chiayi County. The administration building is located in the center of the campus. In front of the auditorium is the library and the information center. A real added valuer for the campus is the lake, a popular and scenic spot for visitors and residents of the University community.
Minxiong is a rural town with a population of over 70,000. It is the most populous district in Chiayi County and consists of 28 villages.
Mixiong Township is located in the Chianan plain surrounded by low hills. The climate is humid and hot.
If you have the possibility, we advise you to move and visit also the rest of the island.
In terms of nature, the Taroko Gorge is a small paradise where you can see impressive gorges of height, incredible blue water and rich vegetation.
Located just north of Taipei, Yangmingshan National Park is worth a visit. There, you will be in the middle of nature: you will feel the sulphur of volcanoes, you will see beautiful flowers, hot springs, lakes, mountains…
The nature is incredible in Taiwan, but don’t miss the historical part of this country either. To see old houses, we suggest the cities of Tainan and the capital Taipei. In Tainan, there is for example the Shennong street, with traditional houses, of Taiwanese (with bars on the windows), Japanese or Chinese inspiration. Today, these beautiful storefronts have become the meeting place of Taiwanese youth who meet in the evening in the many cafes and bars of this district. Do not miss the beautiful temples of Taiwan. Often places of commemoration or prayers… You will obviously see them in every city.
Taiwan is one of the most famous tea producers in the world, especially Oolong, which is – in short – a semi-fermented tea, between green and black tea. You can taste it in the Alishan region where a famous tea is produced, plucked and roasted at more than 2,000 meters.
And if you can’t go and enjoy the tea there, you can always do it in a tea bar in the middle of Taipei. There, tea is served in stemmed glasses, like a wine that is tasted!
You can also walk through a tea plantation or among beautiful cherry trees. Si vous avez la chance d’y aller en février ou en mars, alors vous aurez la chance de voir la floraison. There are several places known for this. In the Alishan region, in particular. But also around Taipei, in Yangmingshan National Park (around Zhu Zihu road).
As in some Asian countries, such as China, it is always very interesting to walk through a night market. Just to see the animation as the Taiwanese appreciate these markets.
