NEW DEANSHIP AT
NATIONAL TAIWAN UNIVERSITY
Dr. Shing-Yang Hu became the Dean of the College of
Management on August 1st, 2019.
He joined the Department and Graduate School of Business Administration faculty
in 1995. He received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, USA, and MBA from San Jose State University, USA.
The College of Management aims to be a leading management
school in Asia and to exert global impact based on outstanding educational and research
capabilities. To do so, we are determined to increase the College's influence
on academic, education, society, industry-university collaboration,
international affairs, as well as to establish a service-oriented
administration. Working closely with the Associate Deans and all staff members,
I have envisioned the College to contribute to the academic and business
sectors in the following five aspects.
Establishing multiple learning platforms to nurture
innovative management talent and excellent staff, e.g. leverage mentoring and
peer observation projects, encouraging the writing of case studies on
businesses in the Mandarin-speaking world to provide customized courses and to
train new-coming faculty.
Setting up interdisciplinary research teams to pursue
comprehensive management issues, e.g. bidding government projects, seeking out
more diverse research resources, and inviting top international scholars to
visit; promoting intra-college, interdisciplinary researches communities and
corporate management research into Chinese-speaking firms, and seeking
opportunities of international collaboration.
Fostering industry-university cooperation to help
transform Taiwanese firms and facilitate entrepreneurship, e.g. continuously
inviting industry experts to share their experience, striving for
industry-university cooperation opportunities and building up network,
consulting and helping industries upgrade, exerting full capabilities of the
Career Development Office, and providing a platform for EMBA alumni to sponsor
Strengthening international cooperation in order to have
a global impact, e.g. increasing exchange opportunities for staff and students
to world-renowned universities, signing dual-degree agreements with partner
schools, working with multinational consultancies in short-term courses, and
continuously participating in the AAPBS and keeping on AACSB accredited.
Encouraging students to participate in social
entrepreneurial initiatives. This is to inspire them on social responsibility
and inviting alumni to improve the “Last Mile” project.
With the help of professional managers,
we are strengthening the executive capabilities of individual functional
offices led by the Associate Deans. I have great confidence in achieving these
goals, and I am grateful and honored to have full support from my fellow
colleagues. We will keep improving administrative processes, promoting
innovative educational programs, and enhancing administrative efficiency in
order to make the College a respected academic institution with ever-greater
