EMBA Commencement: Class of 2018 to Work Toward Social Innovation
As a leading business management education program, NTU EMBA has been a platform where top elites from various industries gather together to brainstorm, debate, and create new ideas and practices. On June 23, the NTU EMBA Commencement Ceremony sent off 217 graduates, adding new members to the program’s pool of over 3,500 alumni.
At the ceremony, Interim President Tei-Wei Kuo (郭大維) congratulated the graduating students and encouraged them to continue lifelong learning after graduation. In his address, Dean of Management Ruey-Shan Guo (郭瑞祥) provided an alternative interpretation of the NTU motto, “Integrity, Diligence, Fidelity, and Compassion,” as a gift to wish the graduating students every success in the future.
The invited speaker of this year was Ms. Hsin-Ling Shen (沈芯菱), an activist who established an online agricultural production and marketing platform at the age of 11 and has continued to commit herself to public welfare since then. As the youngest speaker who has ever spoken at the NTU EMBA Commencement Ceremony, the 29-year-old Shen redefined EMBA as “Empathy, Mission, Benefit, and Action,” asserting the power and value of social innovation and individual change. Shen also stressed the importance of cooperation in fulfilling individual and public goals.
NTU EMBA is pleased to have more elites joining its alumni network, as all NTU EMBA members will continue working toward social innovation, business–society reciprocity, and sustainable development. The graduating students included Donald Huang (黃亞興), Chairman and CEO of Global TEK Fabrication; Hao-Yuan Xu (徐浩源), CEO of Taiwan E-go Car Rental Group; Anne Liu (劉盈秀), President of Tatung System Technologies Inc.; Xin-Ping Zhao (趙心屏), former Commissioner of the Department of Information and Tourism at Taipei City Government and Director of Dawin; Jason Hsueh (薛聖棻), Producer of Golden Bell Awards; and Wen-Yan Zeng (曾文衍), Brand Director of Bear Forest Villa.
