New Elective Course Introduction

論文寫作 Thesis Writing
(Course ID: 749 M1610


This course evolves out of a recognition that GMBA students have a growing need for guidance on practical Thesis Writing and builds on the Quantitative Research Methods for Thesis Research course.


This course focuses on developing core academic writing skills through a series of applied activities. Specifically, students are introduced to critical synthesis writing for literature review. For the writing of the results section, students are provided with datasets then introduced to analytical writing skills. This is followed up by an introduction to inferential writing skills by demonstrating how research findings and the literature are combined to develop a discussion chapter. Students are also introduced to summary writing, especially in the context of writing Abstracts, Executive Summaries, and Conclusions. The course is concluded with a series of academic writing and editing skills.


企業風險管理 Enterprise Risk Management
(Course ID: 749 M1600



We are going to offer a new elective course, Enterprise Risk Management, in the spring semester 2023, to be instructed by Pochin Shiue, PhD.


In his career with global consulting firms, Pochin has provided financial advisory services, including risk management framework, solutions and strategy, for various financial institutions in South East Asia. Moreover, he frequently instructs training courses on risk management to bank professionals across ASEAN. In particular, he has developed and implemented quantitative risk models relating to IFRS 9, Basel 2/3 for banks in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Taiwan.

Pochin holds a PhD degree in finance from University of Cambridge and a MSc degree in finance from Lancaster University. Also, he completed his undergraduate studies in finance from College of Management, National Taiwan University.

Risk is persistent everywhere for enterprises running business under rapidly changing global business environment and in particular in the recent surrounding of Covid-19 pandemic. Managing effectively any substantial risks confronting an enterprise is becoming more and more important in its day-to-day tasks. Enterprise risk management (ERM) is a practice that examines and implements risk management strategically from the perspective of the entire enterprise. It aims to prevent any potential losses and dangers that may impact the operation of an enterprise. Proactive risk management strengthens an enterprise’s ability to contend with existing and emerging risks and adapt quickly to unexpected risk events. Furthermore, integrating enterprise risk management with strategy helps to enhance business performance.

Also, every enterprise faces financial risks which would cause potential losses under business uncertainty. Financial risk management is the process of measuring and managing financial risks to which an enterprise might be exposed either now or in the future. The economic crisis during the 2008 affirms the importance of risk management, especially in the financial services industry.

This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills commonly used in practice to implement ERM framework utilising risk management qualitative and quantitative methods. Students will learn to identify, assess, control and respond to risks for an enterprise, and also integrate risks with business strategy to improve performance. In addition, this course will introduce practical implementation and application of financial risk management covering market, liquidity, credit and operational risk measurement and management from the viewpoint of financial institutions.

Upon completion of this course, students are expected to be capable of using the techniques learnt to analyse, evaluate and manage risks, and develop business strategy from an enterprise point of view. Also, students will acquire the knowledge of the best practices in financial risk management.




Winning Strategies of Asian Semiconductor Industry in Global Chip Contest
(Course ID: 749 M1620



On August 2, 2022, Taiwan attracted the world’s attention as never before by the visit of Nancy Pelosi, while serving as the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Her visit was fiercely objected and threatened by China. Even as the visit serves its political purpose on the U.S. and Taiwan, there is a more important strategic and realistic purpose of her visit on the future global development of one particular industry: “semiconductor”.


Her 18-hour short stopover visit was highlighted with an unannounced luncheon with few semiconductor industrial leaders in Taiwan, including TSMC founder and its current chairman. Her visit came just days after U.S. Congress passed the Chips and Science Act in providing $52 billion incentive subsidies to attract semiconductor manufacturers to build factories in the U.S.


With such backdrop in mind, this course aims at introducing the semiconductor industry in Taiwan and in Asia. Students will gain an industrial overview,  acquire fundamental understanding of its supply chain and major players, and obtain insights regarding the winning strategies of Asian semiconductor industry in global chip contest.


Students will benefit from the unique background of the course instructor Dr. Edward Hsieh to bring to this course and from a few executives in semiconductor industries to be invited as guest speakers.


Dr. Hsieh's M.S. and Ph.D. research and industrial career was in the area of semiconductors for high-speed and optical nano-devices. His M.S. advisor was awarded Nobel Prize in physics in Semiconductor. Dr. Hsieh’s later career in finance and investment was also related to investment analysis in the semiconductor industry.



從財務到策略 From CFO to CEO

(Course ID: 749 M1590) 



As its title is named, this course intends to furnish students with sufficient know-how regarding finance, macroeconomics, corporate sustainability issues, etc., and in turn, help them construct better decision-making skills from CEO’s perspective. The approach to this course is focused on the practical application of finance knowledge. This course will cover important issues and key topics in recent.

To start with, we will focus on international macroeconomic situations including the influence of interest rate increases, what is stagflation and its impact, the formation causes of the financial crisis, etc. As for an international corporate, there is nothing more important than the global economic situation; consequently, constructing the capabilities to analyze the macro-economic information and anticipate what would happen and how to address them is our first step.


The second session is regarding the capital market. In this module, we will introduce different approaches to financing – DCM and ECM. To make the best use of the capital resource, there comes to 2W1H:

◆ Which approaches to choose?
◆ When to finance?
◆ How to allocate the proportion of them?


Further, the next topic is the corporate responsibilities issues – ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance). With increasing attention and valuation of corporate responsibilities to society and the environment, it is essential and indispensable for top executives to get familiar with these regulations. Last but not least, the ending part of the course is to exploit the future. To discover the potential of the corporate, top decision-makers play a key role to capture the opportunities to grow up; it could be accomplished by M&A or spontaneous growth.


After finishing this course, I believe students can not only build up professional skills and capacities but also expand their international horizons. All students are welcome to take this course to build up their own big picture and think things big.


氣候變遷與企業永續發展 Climate Change and Sustainability

 (Course ID: 749 M1580) 


This spring semester 2023, we invite interested students to join a new elective course, Climate Change and Corporate Sustainability, instructed by Prof. Joe Hsueh.


How to take a systemic approach to address climate change?

How can corporations create effective climate strategies?


Climate change is not the consequence of a single action, but the result of an interplay of various factors. Hence, solving it requires a systemic approach. Students of this course will first learn about the basic drivers of climate change, available solutions and underlying dynamics. Equipped with this fundamental knowledge, we will then take a deep dive into frameworks that corporations can use to set effective climate targets and based on that formulate strategies for successful climate action. Finally, students shall apply their learnings with a project presentation.


This one-credit introductory course requires no prior knowledge in climate science or business management and is designed to prepare students with a high-level knowledge of creating corporate climate strategies.
