On August 17, Director Audrey Hsu, and Professor Leon van Jaarsveldt had the pleasure of meeting with Ambassador Gómez of the Republic of Guatemala in the Republic of China (Taiwan).
We had a fruitful dialogue with Ambassador Gómez, and we were able to agree on several points of cooperation:
Ambassador Gómez has graciously agreed to address our students at the GMBA Graduation Ceremony on September 12. As the Republic of Guatemala is celebrating its Bicentennial, Ambassador Gómez will be joining us remotely.
We have also formed a partnership with Ambassador Gómez to introduce excellent Guatemala companies to GMBA. This includes inviting Guest Speakers and developing case studies.
The invited companies will represent Guatemala’s digitization successes, especially in its extended efforts to becoming a regional hub for Customer Management Service Centers.
Companies will also include leading companies in CSR and ESG practices from the especially its booming sugar mill industry.
Initially, we plan to have a talk on Business Culture, Leadership and Motivation in Guatemala as part of the Organizational Behaviour class, provisionally scheduled for December with the date and time to be confirmed. This talk will be participated in by Ambassador Gómez and a Guatemala company leader. This talk will be open to all students of GMBA.
In the long term, we will also work with to develop partnerships with Guatemala Business Schools. This partnership will initially focus on developing joint virtual class sessions.
We look forward to growing this partnership with Ambassador Gómez and the Embassy of the Republic of Guatemala and look forward to announcing more news on cooperation in the near future.
