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.

Finally, it was the time to meet our customers and deliver our outputs. The main meeting hall was filled with stressful atmosphere at the very beginning and it became more relaxed when the first presentation had been started.
 
 

Samsung and Fubon Hyundai representatives were with us at the main meeting hall. Stephan Dold, Samsung representative, also gave us a special workshop on managing different interests among multiple stakeholders under constraints.
 


At the end of the day, though there were winners and losers as customers’ decisions were made, the most valuable thing was not a reward or the word “winner”, but it was OUR FRIENDSHIP, LEARNING EXPERIENCES FROM FAILURE and REAL LESSON ON CROSS-CULTURE MANAGEMENT which merited all of our efforts.
 


Finally, as it was always reminded during the study trip, don’t forget to “PUT YOURSELF IN INCONVENIENT SITUATION and FIND OUT HOW TO BE CONVENIENT IN THAT SITUATION”. It was a WONDERFUL trip in Seoul City. SEE YOU AGAIN!!!
