NTU wishes to be the boundary crossing, aggregating, fulfilling, and innovative pioneer to help businesses to do whatever they prefer to do, said Xie Ming-Hui, CEO, NTU EMBA, that they may help the society while realizing profit.

According to Xie Ming-Hui, CEO, NTU EMBA, as a leader in values and constant innovation, NTU must carry a greater share of responsibilities in combining diversified values, and that is also the spirit of NTU EMBA. We are tasked to lead Chinese EMBAs, and NTU EMBA firmly believes that the fulfillment of Social Innovation must combine the diversified values like “concurrently preserving shareholders’ profit and social responsibilities”, “management capacity and entrepreneur spirit”, and “pursuit of intellect potentiality and the quality in physicals, minds, and spirits”, and build a platform on which the elites may congregate. In the future, NTU EMBA shall continue to compete with itself especially in terms of “diversified values” and “innovative learning”. In essence, social innovation is not a transitory task, but to help businesses to achieve sustainability and, even more important, to inject new stamina and momentum into Taiwanese society.
