Student Council

Imagine yourself five years from now: you’re settled into a new job, maybe in Taipei but perhaps San Francisco, Hong Kong, or Amsterdam. On the wall of your office hangs your GMBA diploma, a document forever linking you back to a few short years at NTU.

 

What does it mean to you? Is it just a piece of paper, or does it evoke bonds of friendship, unforgettable memories, and meaningful accomplishments?

 

As GMBA students, we believe that we strengthen the value of our degree by:

 

  • Encouraging lifelong friendships amongst ourselves and our GMBA alumni
  • Investing in our professional and personal development
  • Supporting a network of globally-minded business professionals in Taipei
  • Advocating for continuous improvement in the GMBA, the College of Management, and NTU

We invite you to join your classmates in taking part in the life of the GMBA. Together, we will work to make the GMBA something that everyone – students past and present – can be proud of; to add value to our degrees in a way that goes beyond the number of hours spent in the classroom, marks earned on exams, and pages written in a thesis.
 

What We Do
  • Unity Ball – the annual celebration of all things GMBA
  • Our biggest event of the year, held each spring, brings together alumni, current students, faculty, sponsors, and partners for a formal evening of reunion, celebration, and connection.
 
  • LIVE Event Series – Inspiring Global Business

 
  • Welcoming New Students – Passing the torch

Class-by-class, we welcome the next group of GMBA students through social events and matching activities, and connect one generation to the next.

 
  • Expanding Our Network and Engaging with Taipei’s Business Community

We connect with professional networking organizations, industry groups, and our counterparts at other global MBA programs in the region. We head out into the world to explore the events, groups, and companies of relevance to business students, because no one person can do it all alone.

  • Social Events
  • Dragon Boat Team – Row your way to victory to the beat of a drum

Both those new to Taiwan and those who grew up here are invited to join in for a hard-fought and fun competition steeped in local culture.

 

  • Making a Difference in Our Community

For some of us, Taipei is home. For others, it is home… for now. For all of us, community outreach is a way for us to give back to this place and the people that make it so special.

 
Invest Your Time and Talent in the GMBA
On behalf of all present and past Global MBA students, welcome to our GMBA family! While you are here, you have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally. In ways you expect, because of goals you set. And in ways you didn’t expect to, because this is real life, and the best surprises are sometimes those that aren’t expected.
Through planning experiences, Student Council gives GMBA the opportunity to grow together, so we can enjoy the journey of life. We encourage you to join a student council committee:
 
  • Community Relations -Gets involved locally, and with social service organizations
  • Corporate -Builds connections with companies and sponsors
  • Marketing and Events -Plans and promotes GMBA social events
 
Joining Student Council helps you get to know each other and your surroundings. It also gives you the chance to experiment and nurture your own sense of what makes you special. And, build relationships by showing what GMBA can do when we do things together.
When you graduate, you will have a story to tell about your time in GMBA. Stories are based on what we think is important, so when we live a story, we are telling people around us what we think is important. Join us, and let’s create a GMBA story you want to tell!
