To welcome the new 15th batch of “GMBAers”, and in preparation for the coming Fall semester, GMBA office held an orientation event last weekend (2020,09,13). The orientation event is aimed to facilitate the networking between GMBAers. And simultaneously, this event also allows the new students to have a better understanding of the GMBA program. Due to COVID-19, there were students joining remotely as well, which is a first for this event. Regardless, everyone participating the event can still feel the enthusiastic atmosphere and passion from all the participants. We, as one big GMBA family, gathered around last weekend to welcome everyone, new and existing, past and future for a promising and exciting year ahead.
It was a whole day event with plenty of activities arranged, including team building, case study, open spaces and so forth. During these activities, new GMBAers from diverse culture and industrial background interacted meaningfully with each other. The orientation not only helped to build up team chemistry but also provided students with the chance to “pre-experience” the richness on course arrangements and innovative teaching methods. Furthermore, the experience sharing of current students and alumni also helped new students to cultivate the learning skills toward future GMBA courses.
Director of GMBA, Audrey Hsu, introduced the development of GMBA program. She encouraged students to explore new opportunities with international perspectives. She also advised new grade students to take advantage of the rich resources of NTU during their graduate program. In the end, new GMBAers wrote down future letters to address the expectations on themselves two-years later. It was a day full of joy and was the beginning of an exhilarating adventure!
