On July 26th, 2023, Stan Shih, Chairman of StanShih Foundation, Dr. Sanjeev Khagram, President of Thunderbird School of Global Management, and Wei-Ta Pan, President of Soochow University, signed a Memorandum of Understanding on "International Talent Cultivation Program for Semiconductor Industry," which is aimed at cultivating international management talents specialized in this particular sector.
By providing systematic and customized training courses on language, cross-cultural communication, and leadership, this program aims to help would-be expatriates not only acquire basic communication skills but also gain an in-depth understanding of how cultural differences impact business management.
In addition, these expatriates can also know how to take proactive measures and practice harmonious cross-cultural management. They will become high-quality international talents through this program.
According to Stan Shih, founder of Acer Group, Taiwan's semiconductor industry ecosystem is accelerating its efforts to establish facilities in the United States, Europe, and Japan, further extending Taiwan's economic power. However, as the problem of insufficient international management talents will soon surface in the process of the internationalization of Taiwanese enterprises, companies should make early preparations to counter it.
Dr. Sanjeev Khagram stated that this cooperation is not only a program but also a commitment. It will tailor-make training courses for high-end international management talents to meet the needs of different industries. In addition to improving the efficiency of management and employees in Taiwan, this initiative will enable overseas staff to quickly adapt to local cultural differences and to shine on the world stage in a timely manner.
Jin-Shyang Roan, Dean of Soochow University's Business School, pointed out that besides professional expertise and language skills, a great international talent should also be equipped with four essential abilities: "Learn to know,” “Learn to do,” “Learn to live together,” and “Learn to be” in order to communicate with people around the world, establish connections, and ultimately make contributions. This is what this tripartite program hopes to achieve in nurturing future labor force.
