It is my great pleasure and privilege as the Head of Global MBA program to welcome you all to NCTU. A special welcome to all our international students who have brought in diversified knowledge and astuteness that our faculty members and domestic students can learn with and from. In this ever-growing borderless world, it is imperative for all of us to remember the fundamentals of respect—how critical it is to honor everyone’s culture—as our professional lives progress. I believe this is what being GLOBAL is all about.
The global business environment has radically changed. We exist in a turbulent business environment full of disruptive innovations, smartly collaborative consumers, severe cross-border security concerns, ambivalent economic uncertainties, and complex and intertwined governmental regulations. Now is a great time for you to prepare, engage, transform, and aggressively propel forward. Our GMBA is AACSB accredited, cutting-edge, and well-respected in the Greater China region and across the globe. The program will prepare you for tomorrow’s business opportunities while keeping you grounded in today’s business reality. Our faculty provides a unique learning experience through lectures, case studies, workshops, field trips, country visits, business competition and rigorous academic research. At NCTU, we respect the freedom of speech and thought; discussion, discourse and debates are central for you to thrive and succeed personally, socially, and academically.
As managers and future business leaders, we expect all of you to respect yourselves and others, to follow protocol in administrative and academic matters, pursue excellence in your academic endeavors and to be accountable for your role as an MBA student. Once again welcome and I wish you much success in the near future!
