【107】CTBC Students share their learning in the United States at Wharton School

Four senior students from CTBC Business School have received full sponsorship for one year study abroad program at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and shared their learning experiences of local life as the first semester is coming to an end, and left us a wonderful record as the first batch of the sponsorship for one-year overseas program.
 
All four had expressed appreciation to the school for the solid foundation in the first three years, whether it is the professional courses, financial certification counseling, various English activities and training, requirement for second foreign language, or the sponsorship for summer overseas program in sophomore year. In addition to all the pre-arrangements for travel abroad, the school had also assisted them on the planning of study track, admission to the University of Pennsylvania, student visa interviews, etc. to make sure they face the new adventures in the states as smooth as possible. 
 
After the first semester, Ms. Chia-Ying Li stood out as she received the offer as International Guest Student from the University, and she scheduled to take more professional courses in a different field. Ms. Li also shared her learning experience from one of her classes titled “International Business Management", saying the professor would set a theme each week, and all students had to choose a company focusing on its recent development and impact under the current political and economic situation. To complete the course, Ms. Li proposed a decision-making policy, and assessed the imminent risk then she simulated an official report to supervisor in verbal and written format to gain her own insights in business operation. Ms. Li plans to take four courses in psychology, negotiation, and data marketing in her second semester at the University as she looks forward to enrich her overseas learning experience.
 
For the upcoming semester, Mr. Cheng-Hung Liu plans to take a Global Real Estate professional course at Wharton. He believes that real estate is also a financial product worth investing in and observing, and hopes to learn more about the dynamics and knowledge of the international real estate industry. With his former experience in sports analytics at CTBC Business School, Mr. Tung-Hsuan Tsai plans to continue his interest in the field by taking one course in Sports Management at Wharton next semester. Even though Mr. Tsai already knows the course requires a 15-page long as final report, he is still very much looking to enhance his understanding in this field. As for the only student majoring in law among the four, Ms. Chun Chen plans to prepare for lawyer license exam once she returns to Taiwan, and she also aims to take on more challenging courses in the next semester.
The four seniors also gave different advices to their peers back in Taiwan. Ms. Chen encouraged her peers to be more active and progressive when it comes to English learning, and start to cultivate independence if one wishes to pursue studying or working overseas in the future. Ms. Li said that mastering the fundamental and theoretical knowledge is essential; one must train to be more responsive to the changing environment. It is important to stand firm on your ground and learn how to express and implement your own tasks as planned whenever being hit by new encounters, unexpected situations, or sudden changes.
 
Both Mr. Liu and Tsai suggested the sophomores to strive the utmost for exchange programs or summer overseas sponsorship. It is crucial for the younger generation to step out of their usual surroundings and be ready for the global community. Finally, Mr. Liu concluded his learning with a quote from Benjamin Franklin, “Life is a kind of chess” to encourage his peers being mindful and cautious with every decision they make like playing chess, then bravely step out.
