Greater China EMBA Elite Study Week
The three economies of Greater China have thrived through interaction and partnership. Each has evolved fast, creating more opportunities for new business partnerships. This program aims to facilitate this via an educational partnership comprising a top business school from each economy: the CUHK Business School (CUHK) in Hong Kong; the Guanghua School of Management of the Peking University (PKU) in Beijing; and the College of Management of the National Taiwan University (NTU) in Taipei. This program was the first of its kind conducted worldwide.

The EMBA programs of the three universities are taking turns to organize a study week in their home regions. Last year, the CUHK EMBA program hosted the study week in Hong Kong, with the theme of “The Value & Contribution of Global Financial Centre: The HK Experience”. This year in February, the NTU EMBA program hosted the study week in Taiwan, with the theme of “Service Upgrade and Industrial Transformation”. Lectures, seminars and site visits were conducted to enable participants to identify in-depth the gist behind service upgrade and industrial transformation and to come up with insights to help corporations make better decisions in the future. The visits included a corporate visit to the Far Eastern Electronic Tolling Company (FETC). The Executive Director and President of FETC, Mr. Y. C. Chang (遠通電收股份有限公司執 行董事兼總經理張永昌先生), delivered an insightful speech and interacted with participants on a wide range of issues on Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT).

Students from the three schools were required to complete their projects in teams. The teamwork helped participants develop an understanding of differences in culture and business styles. The class emerged not only with a broader perspective on the above topics in Greater China, but also with strengthened business and social networks.
