2023International Programs Alumni Gathering Event
16th September 2023 (Saturday), the IBMBA and GHRM MBA Alumni Gathering was held on September 16th at BUNA CAF'E in Taipei Neihu District. This is Taipei's first alumni gathering event that we can chow down after three years of the pandemic. The IBMBA and GHRM MBA programs prioritize the program's academic excellence and strengthen the alumni network. This event was an excellent opportunity to bring together the distinguished alumni, faculty, and staff of our programs' close-knit community. There were 70 alumni working around Taiwan gathered together to enjoy lunch with the professors of the College of Management. The professors representing our programs were Program Director Prof. Chieh Lee, Prof. François Bouchetoux, Prof. Ryan Brading, Prof. Wil Martens, and Prof. Wen-Shin Chen. The event's success would not have been possible without Cindy Lin and Yvonne Huang's organization.
The event started with the opening speech of the President of the Alumni Association of International Programs, Justin Tang, and followed up with the passionate welcome of our program director, Prof. Chieh Lee, to all alumni. After a brief introduction to our coming professor, follow with the event's highlight, Kahoot Games! Simple games simple questions, are precisely the right ways to break the ice and splash back everyone's memories in NSYSU. Melody Hsueh, Kevin Yeh, and Ysanne Chen, three lucky alumni winners who earned the highest score, bagged prizes home successfully.
After these warm-up activities, the event goes straight to the main point: gathering! The delicious buffet-style lunch was served at the same moment. The room was full of excitement and good vibes. Alumni were excited to reunite with old friends and make new connections. The alumni event brought back cherished memories from their time at NSYSU while creating new ones and strengthening their relationships and friendships. The event was filled with smiles, hugs, amusing conversations, positive emotions, and delicious food. It was heartwarming to witness the strong bond between our alumni and how easily they reconnected with the faculty and staff.
Could it be imagined that the most amazing things in the world you are with the right people at the right time and with great food！ It was truly a day with lots of fun, positive vibes, entertainment, and beautiful memories. The alumni gathering event is always highly anticipated and brings so much fun, positive energy, joy, happiness, and precious memories. It's definitely one of the best occasions that everyone cherishes and enjoys to the fullest.
