President Chang who serves as the chair of GF-EMBA consultant stated that the fashion industry has become the star of future. Although Taiwan is productive in designing and, the fashion industry of Taiwan is not connected to the world. That’s why President Chang believes that NTNU should now establish an EMBA to cultivate future professionals in fashion management with the NTU Triangle.
When it comes to teachers, GF-EMBA executive Professor Hsia said that they will make good use of NTU Triangle. Despite professors from NTU Triangle, they will invite general managers and chairperson in the industry to open lessons.
