NSYSU's IBMBA program enriches global experiences
CNAKAOHSIUNG--Students attending National Sun Yat-sen University's (NSYSU) International Business MBA (IBMBA) program are being given a special — and rare — chance of gaining Canadian and Austrian experiences through its ACT program, which school administrators predict will give students a leg-up in their future careers.

Yang Hung-duen, president of the university, said many Taiwanese students dream of studying abroad, and attending the school's IBMBA program will help them realize that dream. Half of the students in the all-English program are non-Taiwanese, so being in the program is like studying abroad, he said.
Also, as students choose to fulfill some credit requirements overseas, while paying only “local” tuition — much lower than they would otherwise have to pay — they can obtain actual “foreign experience.” Cooperating universities in Austria and Canada will issue them certificates for course credits.
Additionally, the IBMBA program is seeking to sign agreements with Canadian and Austrian universities on awarding degrees to participating students, whose “double degree” is expected to boost their competitiveness in the job market.
