Mr. Joseph Tsoi (Vice-Chairman, Standing Committee of Convocation, CityU) represented alumni to ask some questions to Prof. Way Kuo including student exchanging program, university ranking, online free course named MOOC, and School of Veterinary Medicine, etc.
President told us several stories to answer those questions such as MIT’s research of internet, USA only 50% graduation rate, etc.
During discussion the School of Veterinary Medicine, President told us a story about receiving a donation when he under clinical inspection. It could be found in Way Kuo Blog - http://wikisites.cityu.edu.hk/sites/president/default.aspx. He encouraged us that no one could look us down after establishment of Vet School.
I asked a question how to enhance the entrepreneurship training in CityU so as to increase innovation and commercialization in CityU. President said they were working on this direction and encouraged students to apply patent in their distinction project.
One of questions was about teaching language such as EMBA in Chinese. President told us Tsinghua University also used Chinese for their EMBA. He said language was important for communication but the most important was content/message. Once your country strong, everybody would use your language. He told another story about Taguchi training. No one (participant in USA) knew what his said (in Japanese) but everyone followed his method. He also joked that many people said Hong Kong student they didn’t speak in English. It was same as USA’s student. Why? It was because they didn’t communicate with each other! President’s colleague added EMBA was a platform. President another colleague answered how to enhance personal development. He replied that he would challenge student who didn’t take risk that was also answer my question about entrepreneurship. He also mentioned the mentorship and internship program for solving this program.
I took a photo with my teacher Prof. Paul Lam.
