Words from Our Alumni
Pei-Ya Cheng, Master in Industrial Technology Graduate Program in Finance Innovation Class of 2018
While learning appropriate workplace ethics, you will be able to decide whether the industry field is suitable for you and reduce the gap between expectations and reality and the painful period of transitioning to the workplace. In the end, life is not all about work. I hope that everyone can find their own interests and achieve work-life balance, health and peace on the road to becoming stronger.

The second point is to make good use of school resources. For example, National Sun Yat-sen University provides students with free one-on-one language exchange opportunities with foreign students, and the College of Management provides big data analytics courses. These and other opportunities are really worth taking advantage of. In addition to this, the internship experience during the semester is a great opportunity to explore your career options.
Also, because the Master in Industrial Technology Graduate Program in Finance Innovation program provides bank internships, students can understand the skills required for the workplace and prepare for them in advance. The above three points were the nourishment for me to grow up in the midst of all my stumbling, and you can enjoy the fruits of your work only after you put them into action. Just do it!
