Sabrina Ching-Mei Chang, who hails form Taiwan, started her Aalto EMBA studies last fall. “I wanted further training and skills in business, and after searching for a suitable EMBA program, I ended up at Aalto EE in Finland for a number of reasons. Firstly, I wanted to understand globalization and the internationalization of business also from outside Taiwan.”

Finland is renowned as a creative and innovative country, which are characteristics that are also needed in Taiwan.”

For Taiwanese Chang, the program at Aalto EE offers an international network and wider perspectives for her own work.

“People in Taiwan know how to work hard, but we still have plenty to learn in working smart”, comments Chang during her visit to Finland. “Finland is renowned as a creative and innovative country, which are characteristics that are also needed in Taiwan. We are in a strategic position regarding China, but also vulnerable, if we don’t know how to renew ourselves, and see issues also from outside Taiwan.”

To begin with, Chang carefully compared the rankings of different EMBA programs. “Aalto EE has performed well, so I know the training would be of a high standard.”

Studying alongside working is tough, but Chang explains that she enjoys learning new things and the encouraging atmosphere.

“The Aalto Executive summit in Helsinki has been incredible! Yesterday, we talked about the digital future. Of course it’s a familiar notion, but it was exciting to hear American and European perspectives on the topic. For instance, Rogier Van Enk, Head of Commercial Strategy, Distribution & Data Science at Finnair, was really interesting, encouraging me in my own thoughts around developing eco-friendly products.”
