KIT Program is a joint program led by National Taiwan University Global MBA, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and Universitas Prasetiya Mulya Business School (PMBS).

The aim of this course is to provide students with the opportunity to experience first-hand the business cultural practices of the region; in a learning environment that promotes cross-cultural understanding and insight into business processes in an “Asian context”. 

A variety of perspectives are explored with the aim of familiarizing students with the business contexts of Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan, as well as issues pertaining to cross-cultural management, innovation and CSR.

The course involves an overseas stay in the Host Country (Indonesia for 2016-7, Taiwan for 2017-8 and Korea for 2018-9) and incorporates company visits, business meetings, networking with local business leaders, as well as lectures from professors of each partner university.

Progress Review

It comes to the fourth day of the KIT Program as time goes on. This year all participating students were teamed up into six different groups for helping three companies, namely Yuanta Bank, DOMI Earth and Ucarer. Each company was served by two groups with customer-made consulting solutions for the proposed problems. This Friday all groups will be presenting their final work to the audiences and each company will point out a group with the best consulting advice. 

With the hope of maximizing each group’s performance in the final presentation and securing their solutions to be in line with the companies’ needs, professors have called for a Progress Review this morning. During the review session, each group had 10 minutes to present what they have gone so far. Professors, as well as the other group members, could give feedback to the proposed solutions and if possible, provided suggestions from a different perspective. Ensuring each group was able to cut deeply into the business problems, Professors also raised several challenging questions to the group members to think it over. The intensive Progress Review lasted for one and a half hours. Each group was released back to their discussion room afterward and kept working on their presentation for tomorrow’s presentation.
