In recent years, NTUB has aligned its recruitment efforts with the local New Southward Policy, enhancing educational cooperation and fostering exchange programs with institutions in Thailand, Vietnam, and Myanmar. The strategy also facilitates collaboration among domestic and international academic entities, businesses, and organizations within the ASEAN community.

NTUB is expanding its ASEAN-focused academic initiatives, offering cross-disciplinary teaching and research projects both domestically and internationally. The university is actively recruiting international students and establishing specialized classes for them. The approach aims to broaden the academic options available to overseas students, particularly those from Southeast Asia, with the goal of developing them into high-level management professionals with global expertise.

Additionally, the university has launched the New Southbound Talent Development Centre on the Taipei campus to offer customized talent training solutions for Taiwanese businesses, addressing local talent needs.

The institution has developed a comprehensive academic system that ranges from five-year specialized education to doctoral programs, solidifying its reputation as one of Taiwan’s premier business schools and a leader in technical and vocational business education. With nearly 150,000 distinguished alumni, NTUB have made significant contributions worldwide.
