Our Dean, professor Shing-Yang Hu, welcomed all the new students on behalf of NTU. He briefly walked us through the history of NTU College of Management and then introduced the “Restart of 4 digits” to encourage the students:

Starting from “0” 
Our students are elites from various industries. But when the students should expect changes when they join the EMBA family. And to change, everything has to go back to the very start first.

Unifying into “1”
Theories and practices should be unified as a whole. Practices can be complicated and chaotic Theories are great tools to understand practices. Put what you learn from theories into practice. Students’ actions should be aligned with theories and they should keep practicing over time. At the end, theories and practices will be unified.

Training in “2” ways
Students should pursue both their studies and their health.

When “3” are walking together, I am sure to find teachers among them.
Students are encouraged to learn not just from the professors, but also the classmates and alumni.

Professor Chi-Chun Liu welcomed the students for joining the big NTU EMBA family. All our students are enterprisers or managers in different industries. Building a career is like sailing in the ocean, NTU EMBA is the telescope in one’s hand, helping our students to stay confident and maintain a clear direction.

Echoing the theme of 2020 enrollment “Seek changes, create differences”, Professor Lis said “All of you have your own profession, what NTU EMBA offers you is the confidence. To help you become more confident, be brave to challenge traditional wisdom, and dare to be different.” Lastly, professor Liu encouraged the students with NTU’s motto” Integrity, Diligence, Fidelity, and Compassion”. He wishes the students to study hard, be compassionate and bring more positivity to the society.
