NCCU was re-established in Taiwan in 1954, and when the university was expanded in 1958, the Ministry of Finance requested the establishment of the Department of Finance and Taxation at NCCU to promote the development of experts in the field of public finance and taxation. In 1963, the Graduate Institute of Public Finance was established to offer an M.A. program in public finance and to advance the academic level of Taiwan’s research in public finance theory and its applications. Along with economic development and the needs of Taiwan’s National Economic Plans, great importance was attached to the government’s resource management and cultivation of experts in the field of policy analysis. Recognizing this trend toward specialization, in 1990 the department started recruiting more undergraduate students into two separate classes, and, beginning in 1994, undergraduate students were split into three divisions: taxation, public financial management, and public economics.

In 1995, in accordance with the university‵s departmental unification policy, the Department of Finance and Taxation and the Graduate Institute of Public Finance merged to become the Department of Public Finance. Our department has continually recruited the best teaching staff from overseas. In 1996, the department established Taiwan’s first Ph.D. program in public finance to promote and advance the level of teaching and research in the fields of public finance and public policy. According to an authoritative report entitled “Departmental Ranking Research of Taiwan Universities: Economics, Accounting, Finance and Banking, Trade and Marketing” released in December 2006 by the Education Evaluation Section of Tamkang University’s Center for Teaching, the NCCU Department of Public Finance was ranked second in the field of economics. At present, this department is actively working towards its lofty goal of becoming the leader and model for the public finance institutions for twenty-first-century Taiwan and Asia.
