Donor Stories

EMBA Class 11

The class of EMBA-11 (2008-2010), whose graduation year coincided with the establishment of the College's Academic Heritage & Dream Realization International Exchange Scholarship to help disadvantaged students or those who have suffered sudden changes, decided to award an annual scholarship of $20,000 each to 16 students. The class representative, Mr. Tsu-kang Lei (雷祖綱), who is also a distinguished alumnus of National Sun Yat-sen University, strongly agreed with this idea and rallied his classmates to support the scholarship, and they have since donated $320,000 each year in the hope that the students can pursue their studies without worries.

It is now the 12th year since then, and the donation amount has reached 3.84 million dollars, and more than 100 students have been helped. Through practical support and encouragement from the alumni, many students who were suffering from hardship at that time have felt the strength and care of their seniors. They have also promised to pass on this love by giving back to the students in the future.

Prof. Ting-Peng (TP) Liang, Master of Business Management, Class 1980

He was born in Magong City, Penghu County, hence the name "Ting-Peng". He grew up in the military village of Renmei in Kaohsiung. He went to Renmei Elementary School, Wenshan Elementary School, Fongshan Junior High School and then Kaohsiung Senior High School, where he grew up as a simple boy who loved to read and play sports. In 1971, he studied in the Department of Chemical Engineering at National Cheng Kung University while taking classes in business management. Aside from school work, he participated in the New Poetry Club and Debate Club, and he also won the Hong Chien-Chuan Children's Literature Award. He was a young man who was into literature and lived a colorful life during his college years. After finishing college in 1975, he has worked for companies such as Chi Mei Corporation, Huikwang Chemical Company, Taiwan Synthetic Rubber Company, and Caofu Chemical Corporation as a pragmatic office worker.

In 1980, when the National Sun Yat-sen University was founded, he was admitted to the graduate program in the Department of Business Management as the top student and was the first batch of alumni to graduate from the Department. During the time at school, he had positive interactions with the faculty members under the leadership of the first president, Mr. Li Huan, and he was a motivated student. In 1981, he was awarded a scholarship from the University to study Behavioral and Decision Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania, and he received his master's and doctoral degrees in 1984 and 1986, respectively. During this time, he actively participated in various cultural exchange activities as a patriotic young man who loved to share Chinese culture. After receiving his doctoral degree, he was offered a position as an assistant professor in the Department of Accounting at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and in 1990, he moved to Purdue University as a tenured associate professor in the Department of Business Administration. He had had nearly a decade of experience in studying and teaching at internationally renowned schools and was an outstanding scholar who had accumulated tremendous research capabilities and a wide range of connections internationally. In 1991, he decided to return to Taiwan with his family and teach at his alma mater, National Sun Yat-sen University, to contribute his knowledge, experience and resources to the country.

Dr. Liang was a highly respected academic in the field of information management at home and abroad. He had not only been awarded the Distinguished Research Award by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) for three consecutive years and the Distinguished Research Fellowship by MOST for two consecutive years, but he also received the Ministry of Education National Chair Professorship in 2008. In 2014, he was awarded the LEO Award for Lifetime Achievement by the Association for Information Systems (AIS), and he was appointed as the President of the AIS in 2018, which made him the first person in the Chinese world to receive this honor. Professor Liang's enthusiasm for sharing and bringing up his juniors was admirable. Every year, he invited outstanding scholars in the field of information management from abroad to Taiwan for exchange events, giving domestic scholars the opportunity to see the world at a higher level. He also enjoyed cross-disciplinary exchanges and had always been a pioneer in the global field of information management, offering many research and learning opportunities for faculty and students, which made him a role model in the field of management.

Dr. Liang was not only a visionary and a practitioner. He was not only passionate about academics, but he was also devoted to singing. In addition, he loved playing tennis. During games, he was a good player with a good tempo of attack and defense, just like he was in his academic research. He was always able to foresee and accurately grasp the trends of research. Sadly, Professor Liang passed away on May 20, 2021. The falling of an academic star is a great loss to the field of information management and management academia. Mrs Chen-Li Wang donated NT$2 million on behalf of her late husband to establish the Lifetime National Chair Professor Ting-Peng Liang Memorial Award, in the hope of nurturing more management talents for Taiwan. "Always believe in the future, always believe in your dreams." was the motto of Professor Liang's, and it also serves as a guideline for students on their journey of study. "The sages, whose times have been far away from us, were models of great virtue from the past." The influence of Professor Liang had on many people during his lifetime will continue to live on.

Thank You Messages from Students

Mr. Geng-Hao Chang, Department of Business Management, Class 2014

Since I entered college, I wanted to be independent, so I have been applying for various scholarships since my freshman year, and I was lucky to have received the Academic Heritage & Dream Realization International Exchange Scholarship from the College.
With the support of the scholarship, I did not have to spend too much time on part time jobs and was able to spend my time on participating in extracurricular activities. I was fortunate to receive the TOEIC scholarship and be an exchange delegate to Europe for the Young Entrepreneurs of the Future program and to Japan for the EPSON Green Project.

In my senior year of college, I went to the Netherlands for six months as an exchange student. Before I went, I applied for the Youth Empower Scholarship. For this application, I chose the boat house as my research topic and learned that there are tens of thousands of people living in boat houses in the Netherlands, and many of them have small boats next to their homes to cruise around the lakes or canals. I suggest younger students expand their social circles. Besides Asian students, try to communicate with people from different countries and reach out to different social circles through parties, trips, course taking, internships, etc. In this way, you will see more and have a better understanding of things you see. After the exchange in the Netherlands, I returned to Taiwan and served in the military. By chance, I came into contact with boats (yachts) that I was familiar with and started my own business, ranging from event hosting, rentals, estate agency, and running clubhouses and clubs. After I started my business, I was fortunate enough to meet many people who helped me along the way, and with the knowledge I gained in the University and the experience of studying abroad, I was able to establish my footing and create a leisure ecosystem for yachting, and now I am the co-founder of the Conflux Yacht.

From a young age, my mother taught me to "always remember to help those who need help more than we do." Since my freshman year of high school, I have been involved in non-profit organizations and social enterprises, and I have been actively sharing my experiences on the internet, hosting various events and organizing activities to make a positive impact. Now I want to devote myself to solving urgent and important social problems to make the society a better place. I hope that everyone can find the light in their hearts and find the beauty in their own lives.

When I received the invitation from the College of Management to write this article, I was curious about the people who have been providing the scholarships on a long-term basis, and I found out that they were the seniors who donate voluntarily every year. Therefore, I decided to donate a portion of my company's profits to this scholarship every year, hoping that the power of goodness can be passed on so that more younger students from the College will thrive, excel, and pass on their love to make the society better together.

Finally, I would like to share my life experience with the younger students: Think outside the box and do more. It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Mr. Liang-Chiu Su, Master of Public Affairs Management, Class 2019

I am honored to receive the scholarship with honors from the Sun Yat-sen Management Education Foundation. I recall the time I applied for the scholarship in my first year of study. I was very apprehensive. From compiling my past experiences to sending in my resume for review, I kept reflecting on whether I was qualified for the scholarship. And when I received the scholarship, I was very grateful and deeply aware that the scholarship was not easy to come by.

Reasons for Application:
After graduating from college, I applied for the master's program in the Institute of Public Affairs Management at National Sun Yat-sen University, and I was admitted to the program. At first, I didn't know what research direction I wanted to take, and I couldn't imagine what kind of career I wanted to pursue in the future. In addition, I wasn't financially stable at the time. However, I was told by the assistant of the Institute about the scholarship, so I started to compile my profile slowly. During the process, I found that I was highly interested in the concept of "social influence", which includes photographing the streets in the society and experiencing the customs of different communities through participation in community development. Therefore, I gradually discovered the career direction that I wanted to pursue in the process of compiling application data.

Establishing a foundation for future development:
After being awarded the scholarship, I attended a gathering at Sunset Beach Resort. Many of the faculty members and alumni who attended that gathering shared their stories as well as their efforts to promote the connection with the local community and to preserve the beautiful harbor and bay. While chatting with various seniors, I learned about the concept of "sustainability" that the College of Management was about to promote, and I became interested in the concept. At the same time, the College has begun to offer many sustainability-related courses to nurture talents in this field, and I have been involved in learning a lot of knowledge about sustainability, including taking courses such as sustainability report writing and corporate carbon emission calculation. My dissertation is a study of social engagement, and I have made a correlation research between CSR and USR, and this dissertation has been awarded the top five in the 2020 CSR Master's Thesis Award.

Commitment to Sustainable Development:
The scholarship I received from the National Sun Yat-sen Management Education Foundation opened up opportunities for my future development and inspired my passion for sustainable development. After graduation, I joined KPMG International, where I mainly work on climate change and sustainable development, writing reports for companies and formulating their net-zero carbon emission pathways. As I am very enthusiastic about the field of sustainability and have seen the development of international trends and the revision of domestic regulations related to climate change, I suggest that the younger students take the courses like "Writing of Corporate Social Responsibility Reports" and "Life Cycle Analysis and Writing of Inventory Report." Through theory and practical experience, take your the first step into the field of sustainability. Meanwhile, I hope that you can use your power to make an impact on the sustainability community and make a contribution to the environment and society.

Hsui-Hui Tsai, Information Management, Class of 2013
MBA in Information Management, Class of 2015

After graduating from the National Sun Yat-sen University, College of Management, I entered the software industry and continued to move up as a front-end engineer. From accumulating technical skills and product development experience, to participating in competitions and publishing books, I am fortunate to have chosen this path, which has allowed me to develop and has opened up a variety of possibilities and surprises. But for me, this was not an easy choice make. Without the support and assistance that I received, I might not have had the opportunity to experience this kind of life. I remember that from the time I was in fifth or sixth grade all the way to graduate school, my family always qualified as a low-income household. Although I did not have to pay most of the tuition and fees, and I continued to receive subsidies and supplies from the government and various charitable organizations, my family had many special circumstances. From an early age, I felt the need to be as independent as possible in school, life, and financially, and even to help my family. Therefore, from high school on, I would try to get part-time jobs and apply for scholarships whenever they were available. In retrospect, I am very grateful to these scholarships for helping me through my long school years and my family’s financial struggles.

However, because of my sensitive nature, I remember that during my high school years, every time I received a tuition waiver or a scholarship, instead feeling happy, I would feel ashamed. Although this feeling of inferiority has been greatly reduced since I entered graduate school, for a long time it has made it hard to feel confident in myself.

Leaving Tainan and coming to NSYSU to study was a very important period in my life. In addition to being truly independent in my life, my participation in departmental activities and the mentality I learned as part of a sports team helped me to gradually forget my inferiority complex. I began to care less about my family’s situation and develop my self-confidence step by step. In addition, after receiving the College of Management’s Work-Study Scholarship, I was required to serve a certain number of hours helping out with the College of Management’s general affairs or activities. In addition to being able to participate in special events and lectures, I was able to break away from my previous feeling of just accepting money without giving anything back. Gradually, I stopped feeling so awkward and ambivalent about receiving scholarships, and now simply feel grateful and hope that I can move forward in response to these noble people’s wishes.

Finally, what I want to share with younger students is that when you are immersed in negative emotions, you can try to think from a different perspective. Although these difficulties and challenges you encounter may seem like obstacles, they can also become forward momentum to push yourself ahead. When you really get your ideal life and look back, you will be grateful for everything you encountered along the way.
