Establishment of the Department of Civil Servant Course in the Faculty of Economics

This course of study is designed for students who intend to enter national and local public service, including positions in the police, firefighting, and other public service sectors. If employees within a company can be considered as the human capital responsible for managing the company, then public servants serve as the human capital tasked with "managing the public." The purpose of this major is to nurture public servants who can contribute to the public interest by applying the essence of management education that our university has cultivated to the public sector.

NUCB has established the Civil Service major as a program that allows students who aspire to become civil servants to acquire the necessary skills to pass the civil service examinations through systematic and practical study. The program offers an environment in which students can systematically take classes related to the academic fields that will be tested in the civil service examinations. Moreover, it provides a support system to assist students in preparing for examinations in areas such as numerical processing and text comprehension, which require logical thinking skills.
