【IBMBA】IBMBA student - Akshit Mehta won the Honorable Mention Award of 2022「Fabulous Taiwan!」Photography and Short Film Contest

IBMBA / JUL 01, 2022

Akshit Mehta(明亮) has joined our IBMBA program since September 2021, and he is one of the awardees of Ministry of Education Taiwan Scholarship as well.

How did you know about this competition?
Since I am on the Taiwan Ministry of Education Scholarship, I got an email from the central committee about the 2022 Fabulous Taiwan! Photography and Shortfilm Contest. The moment I saw the email, I just couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. My love for photography has always been there since childhood as I like to capture beautiful moments and natural beauty with my camera but never thought of taking part in a competition one day. This was the perfect opportunity for me to share the photographs which I clicked in Taiwan (during my stay till now) on the competition platform. I feel I am lucky enough to receive the appreciation from the committee and get the name in Honorary Mentions for this year's competition.

The Philosophy of my Choice of Captions!
The captions which I narrated for the pictures I took were a tedious process as it was not easy to describe natural beauty in words; however, I did whatever best I could. The competition requirement was to give the captions in both English and Chinese, here is how I choose to describe my pictures:

“Uniquely tantalizing TAIWAN is how I would choose to describe my experience. The rare amalgamation of vivid nature & efficient technology is what it is all about. I don't think anywhere else on this planet we can't find this possible combination this well preserved & nurtured as we experience here in this beautiful island nation. Experiencing natural lifestyle every day; from train track in the morning, going through the scenic Sicao ecological park (by boat) in the afternoon, observing picture-perfect sunset in NSYSU & looking at lucent city lights at night.”

Akshit also shared,
It is really commendable to witness how Taiwan has showcased itself as the safest place to be after the Covid-19 pandemic started. This is what influenced me to select Taiwan to study for an MBA degree and what could be better than National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU) in Kaohsiung! I just love the overall experience here in the city and university. For me, Kaohsiung is a perfect blend of modern lifestyle with a relaxing environment. Whenever I feel like missing home, I go to the Love River or the beach just beside our university and relax. It could not get any better than this. Taiwan is a modern, developed, and beautiful island with diversity that always has something to offer to everyone; be whatever your interest is.

How does a place get its hooks in you? By how it looks, how it feels to walk around, how are the people, or how is the food? And after a while, you think “Oh, I could maybe live here, and that is not a terrible idea at all.” Does this ever happen to you? Well, this is how I feel about Taiwan.

【IBMBA】Speech- Being a “doctor” of a company

IBMBA / JUNE 21, 2022

On Friday, May 27th, 2022, students of accounting class (IBMBA) welcome a guest speaker from EY Taiwan with a guest lecture on the topic of “Experiences in the accounting and auditing fields”. Mr. Evan Chen, Senior Manager of EY Taiwan, opened his speech with an interesting comparison of an audit career with a “doctor” of a company.

Mr. Evan Chen has more than ten years of working in the accounting and auditing fields in Taiwan, Shanghai, and Sydney. Besides, he is an adjunct Lecturer of Department of Accounting, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Department of Accounting, National Chung Cheng University (CCU). During his professional career, Mr. Evan possesses extensive and cross-border assurance experience including auditing clients listed in SEC, ASX, HKEx, and TWSE in multiple sectors experiences including Technology, Media and Entertainment and Telecommunications (TMT), Energy and Resources, Consumer and Manufacturing industries. Regarding professional expertise, he is specialized in accounting standards of IFRS, US GAAP, and Taiwan GAAP as well as international taxation compliance.

In the first part, Mr. Evan talked about his experiences in the accounting and auditing fields with the description of being an auditor, and the challenges and opportunities of this profession. With the position of an auditor, you are a “doctor” of a company who must identify problems and give advice to the company in order to deal with the risk during operation. Apart from the angle of financial and accounting, you have to look into the company from all kinds of perspectives (marketing, logistics, and operation) to understand the company well. Then, you can help the company improve the quality of its financial statement. Besides, an auditor needs to understand all the risks of a cycle of a company and can realize any risk within financial information. With a vivid example of the story of a coffee shop, Mr. Evan analyzed the whole process of business operation from preparation to collection in the relation to accounting and auditing tasks.

In the second part, Mr. Evan shared his working experience in the accounting and auditing fields as well as in EY. With extensive experience accumulated from international working environments at different levels from staff to senior manager, Mr. Evan strongly emphasized the importance of learning. Being an accountant and auditor, it is very necessary that you have to be humble, and willing to learn from your supervisors, colleagues, and even your subordinators. Keeping updated knowledge and skills is integral if you want to pursue this career. Besides, he described the career path in accounting and auditing fields from staff and senior to manager and partner that reflects a constantly learning and growing process. Mr. Evan also introduced some tools that can support accounting and auditing jobs. Especially, he introduced a more effective way of auditing, the digital audit, which allowed the auditors and companies to improve the quality of performance and efficiency by focusing on weird trends with the support of digital tools. Finally, he shared about the role of culture in accounting and auditing fields, specifically in EY, supportive culture in working with the motto of keep asking and consulting. One of the significant cultures that he is impressed with is the culture of emphasis on family – family is always the greatest support. Mr. Evan, specifically, stressed the role of culture in working in the international environment that students need to equip and prepare before entering the job market.

In the last part, both professor and students enjoyed asking and discussing the role of digital tools in accounting and auditing jobs, the practical experiences with memorable stories, and the advice for the upcoming novices. After this guest lecture, several students may decide their career paths in this challenging but promising and interesting field – to be a “doctor” of a company.

IBMBA / July 19, 2022

On May 31st, 2022 (Tuesday), Wil Martens, a professor from NSYSU International Programs, was invited by Professor David Andersson to give a speech on the topic of “A Brief Look at The State of The Nation: Canada,” which was conducted online, to provide students with an overview of the Canada market.

During his career, Mr. Wil Martens had different experience in various countries like South Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Taiwan. He used to be the finance lecturer of RMIT International University Vietnam, the director of marketing and student recruitment in Canadian International School Kunshan, the business development in Vietnam Asset Management Ltd., the business manager in Spring International School, and the business Administrator in Mountainview International Christian School.

Although the class was conducted online, the guest lecture was very successful and effective. During the speech, Mr. Wil Martens takes us around Canada from different aspects and follows up with the connection between Canada’s history. We get to know one of the trivia is the name from Canada comes from the Iraqi word for village. Close behind was the topic of immigration to Canada. Mr. Will Martens present the pull factor (why people immigrate to Canada) and the push factor (why people emigrate from Canada). As the rules, to get into Canada Independent immigrants must achieve a certain amount of points. We discussed the points systems, compared them with other countries, and concluded that it’s not too difficult to immigrate to Canada. Given that Mr. Wil Martens has a German and Russian background, he presented a comparison between Canada and Germany. Both professor, guest speaker, and students enjoyed discussing and discussing the differences with the combination of personal experiences.

Every coin has two sides. Mr. Will Martens also mentions that Canada is not perfect and follows with the discussion on the rights of indigenous peoples, housing issues, inflation, etc. Lastly, he summarized an overview of the cultural part of Canada by applying the Hofstede Cultural Framework. The Q&A section has been integrated into the lecture; students seemed unusually willing to share their thoughts. Afterward, we all took a group picture to remember this unique occasion.
