Taipei Tech, the University of Texas at Arlington Team Up to Offer Dual Master's Degrees, Allowing Students to Earn U.S. Degree Without Going Abroad

Taipei Tech is working with the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) to offer two dual master's degree programs starting in Fall 2024. The two programs–Executive MBA (EMBA) and Executive MBA in AI and Big Data–make Taipei Tech the only Taiwanese university to offer two dual degree EMBA programs concurrently.

According to Taipei Tech Office of Continuing Education, courses in both of these programs will be conducted in-person at Taipei Tech, allowing students the access to high-quality education at a reduced cost and without the need to go abroad. Both Taipei Tech and UTA professors will give lectures, which will be recorded for reviewing online. The program is open to applicants who have had at least five years of working experience.

UTA is ranked 31st among U.S. public universities according to QS World University Rankings, and its MBA program also has high global ranking. The QS rankings have also reported that UTA EMBA students have solid background and extensive experience, placing them 2nd among U.S. universities.

Liou Jiann-haw, director of the Office of Continuing Education, said that Taipei Tech is known as the “birthplace of future entrepreneurs” and emphasizes both theory and practice in teaching. The dual degree EMBA programs at Taipei Tech have dedicated staff to provide support. Taipei Tech also communicates directly with UTA to ensure consistency and quality in admission interviews, course scheduling, and teaching support.

Students who enroll in the dual degree EMBA program must complete a minimum of 42 credits (24 from Taipei Tech and 18 from UTA) to earn EMBA degrees from both universities. Students of the EMBA in AI and Big Data program need to complete a minimum of 48 credits (30 from Taipei Tech and 18 from UTA) to earn a Taipei Tech M.Sc. degree and a UTA EMBA degree. Taipei Tech will issue the diploma on behalf of UTA.

The dual degree programs bring top international EMBA resources to students. Liou is confident that these programs will offer students a broader global perspective and enhance their career competitiveness.
