【IB+GHRM】Inspirational Afternoon: NSYSU Alumni Share Stories at Career Networking Event

On Friday, November 10, 2023, National Sun Yat-sen University’s (NSYSU) Student Association of the International Program hosted a career networking event for MBA in International Business (IBMBA) and Global Human Resource Management (GHRM) students. The event featured three distinguished alumni who offered insights into international careers, providing valuable advice and tips for globally-minded students.

The event started with an opening speech by Professor Timo, who welcomed the guest speakers and the students and set the mood for the rest of the afternoon. He also thanked the student association for their efforts in organizing the event and creating a platform for learning and networking. Additionally, two very important individuals, namely Cindy and Scarlett, from the IB office attended the event, whose constant support and guidance made it possible for the Student Association to carry out such meaningful events for the students.

The speakers included:

  • Ms. Hkawn, a GHRM alumnus from Myanmar and marketing specialist at Asus. She discussed her post-graduation career journey, her experiences in a multicultural work environment, and her work-life balance in Taiwan.
  • Mr. Jetsin, an IBMBA alumnus from Thailand and a software configuration engineer at SUSS MicroTec, a German company headquartered in Hsinchu. He shared his passion for software engineering, applying IBMBA skills in his role, and his experiences in a cross-cultural team.
  • Mr. Vigor, an IBMBA alumnus from Indonesia and assistant product manager at FUNPODIUM, a Taiwanese company based in Taipei. He offered key insights from his professional journey.

Following the presentations, a group photo was taken. An afternoon tea session with pastries and beverages facilitated informal interactions between alumni and students in a round table setting. This allowed for personal questions and idea exchanges.

The event was a great success, as it provided a valuable and enjoyable experience for both the guest speakers and the students. The students gained a lot of insights and inspiration from the alumni and made some new connections and friends. The guest speakers expressed their gratitude and satisfaction for being invited to the event and offered their continued support and mentorship to the students.

The Student Association of the International Program thanked the guest speakers, the students, and the faculty for their participation and contribution to the event. They also announced that they will be organizing more events and activities in the future and encouraged the students to join and benefit from them.
