Visions of the Department of Finance

The United Nations in 2015 launched the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which propose seventeen core goals for global governments and enterprises to jointly move towards sustainable development.

Many of the core goals are closely related to finance. SDGs Goal 4 is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Particularly, the main visions of the Department of Finance are to develop students to be equipped with ability to internationalization, informatization, and practicality.

In the aspect of internationalization, our department attempts for students to reinforce global competence to thrive in a rapidly changing financial market. With regard to informatization, our emphasis is placed on students’ abilities in data collection, overall information analysis, digital reproduction, and how digital marketing is adding value to business. Pertaining to practicality, the Department of Finance actively cooperates with enterprises on employment programs and internships.

We encourage students to learn how theory and practice interact through the employment program and internship because these further explore experiential learning opportunities for students and continue to the development of employability skills.

Therefore, the Department of Finance is dedicated to enabling students to become important financial talents in society and country in the future through the abilities they have learned at the university.

Department Emblem

The Department of Finance, Chung Yuan University was established in August 2005, coinciding with the university’s fiftieth anniversary.

The department emblem contains many symbolic meanings:

-The snowflake metaphorically represents the rigorous and meticulous organization of the financial system, akin to the intricate structure of a snowflake; while the unpredictable and harsh financial environment is likened to a sudden change in temperature that causes the snowflake to melt instantly.

-The shell symbolizes financial value, susceptible to the impact of significant changes in the financial environment.

-The unicorn embodies strength and purity, inspiring students to not only enhance their professional knowledge but also to possess good moral character to protect the snowflake and the shell.

-The unicorn’s “horn” symbolizes students’ unremitting professional training and their courageous and forward-looking attitude.

-The castle represents the path to success in the field of finance, requiring mastery of two key elements: opportunity and innovation. As shown in the emblem, the “V” shape in the opportunity point connects the idea of linking key success factors.

-The Greek letter “α” represents the establishment of the Department of Finance, embodying the ideals of inception and innovation, inspired by Revelation 1:8.

The shield represents the blessings of the overall guardians of the financial environment, echoing the Latin phrase “Domine up scuto placabilitatis” from Psalm 5:12, which means “the Lord’s favor is like a shield.”

 

The motto and department emblem are designed by Professor Jo-Hui Chen, the first chairman of the Department of Finance.
