1. After having a master’s degree in management in London, what is your intention to have another MBA degree here in Taiwan? Comparing your management master degree and GMBA, can you tell me what is the main difference?
The difference is the everything except sitting in the lecture room. Let me give you example when I was assigned the groupwork. Firstly, my team members when I studied in London were four Thais and two Chinese; while in GMBA, there were one Thai, one Singaporean, one French, one Korean and one Panamanian. Therefore, in GMBA I not only learnt co-operating with others, but also learnt others’ working style, attitude, culture and experience from very diverse team members. Secondly, in GMBA, there are more courses to choose from and the size of the class is smaller than in the UK. Lastly, there are many more after-class activities such as volunteering, seminars, parties and so on.
