The admission of the Master’s program is conducted through general examination and exam-exempt recommendations. There are two tracks for a Master's degree. One is the Research Master, focusing on scientific research with education of the underlying theories and cutting-edge knowledge. This is a two-year model involving 14 majors and adopting the tutorial system, where two supervisors are responsible for students’ on-campus study and off-campus practice respectively. The curriculum is comprised of compulsory courses and elective courses and is balanced between study and research. Students have an opportunity to be admitted to doctoral program in the second academic year after an application and an exam and thereafter can be eligible for a first-class scholarship during PhD studies. (For more details, please refer to the training program). The other track is the Professional Master, which is more focused on real practice to meet the social demand for professionals. The model also takes two years, involving two majors, i.e., international business and tax. This program also adopts the tutorial system and students are offered with compulsory and elective courses.
