With clear senses of purpose and burgeoning excitement, more than 30 students from MBA programs in Northern Taiwan mounted the steps at Brownie’s Cafe in Taipei’s Xinyi district, hoping to reach out and make contact. Organized my NTU’s own GMBA student council president Tina Lai and VP of Corporate Sergei Naboichenko, the event was a first, bringing together students from National Taiwan University, National Chengchi University, National Tsing Hua University, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, and National Chiao Tung University. A large number of the students traveled to Taipei from Hsinchu, their commitment setting a confident tone for collaboration and communication to come. The dinner represents an earnest attempt to build bridges and bring together like-minded students from international MBA programs. Hopefully, we’ll see more such inter-connected activities in the future.
