Through the competition from April 1st to June 15th, the SCU library hoped to encourage students to make good use of this platform and then obtain its certificates after watching the courses online.

Tsung-Ho Lee, the director of the library, said she was glad to see that many students have been utilizing this resource to broaden their horizon as well as to explore and consolidate new knowledge.

It was too precious to be missed.” Chen has always paid attention to information and materials about business and management, which Leader Campus often provides.

As it is a privilege for Soochow to work with the Common Wealth Magazine to have access to the articles and interactive courses on the online platform, the Library suggested that both teachers and students grab the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and strengthen their competitiveness for future job market whenever they are free to read something by a few clicks.
