The Graduate Institute of Finance offers four specializations - financial engineering, corporate finance, investment, behavioral finance, and quantitative analysis - which broadly reflect the research interests of our faculty. In the past, the  GIF has also built a reputation in the field of commercial gaming studies through the research center “Lottery and Commercial Gaming” (until 2021) that had been directed by Professor  emeritus Dai-yang Liu. In 2021, the "FinTech Digital Sandbox P.O.C. Base" was jointly established by FinTech Innovation Park and Taiwan Tech to cultivate talents in innovative experiment-based financial technology. The new facility will help the integration of empirical research results with the needs of the industry, and serve as a regional center of innovative experiment-based financial technology.

Currently, the GIF is running the following research laboratories:
