National Chengchi University (NCCU; Chinese: 國立政治大學; pinyin: Guólì Zhèngzhì Dàxué; literally: "National Political University") is a public university at Muzha, Wenshan District, Taipei, Taiwan. One of the most prestigious universities in Taiwan,[2] NCCU is well known for its concentration on the social sciences, law, commerce, communication, liberal arts and MBA programs.[3]

According to QS Asian University Rankings, NCCU is listed as one of Asia’s Top 40 Universities in Social Sciences & Management (No. 2 in Taiwan), and in Arts & Humanities (No. 2 in Taiwan).[4]

NCCU had close ties to the Kuomintang (KMT), but today imposes no political requirements on its students.

NCCU is also a member university in the Aim for Top University Project of the Ministry of Education (Republic of China).


Former Gate of National Chengchi University in Nanjing

The National Chengchi University was established in 1927 in Nanking as the Kuomintang's Central Party Affairs School. In 1929, it changed its name to Central Political School, after the "Northern Expedition" victory of the Nationalists in mainland China. In 1946, the National Chengchi University was formally founded, signifying the end of the Second Sino-Japanese War. When the Kuomintang lost control of mainland China in 1949, the university's activities were halted. The university opened once again in Taipei in 1954 to meet the growing demands of tertiary education in Taiwan area. At first, it was exclusively for graduates, but in 1955, undergraduate programs were created. In 1964, Yang Bi-li (楊必立) initiated the earliest Chinese MBA education.
