Elaine • 鄭伊涵
Hello, I am Elaine Cheng. I graduated from IBA in 2019. I entered into University of Illinois Urbana Champaign to pursue the degree in Master of Science in Accountancy right after graduated from both Tunghai University and University of Rhode Island.I had so many great memories in IBA, such as Christmas party and IC night. The most special and memorable experience was the dual degree program. I spent my junior and senior years in University of Rhode Island. I changed to accounting major when I applied for the program.
During those two years, I met many friends from different countries, and I experienced how different the university in the United State is. Most importantly, I learned not only the knowledge we learned in class is important, but also the soft skills we possess are important as well.
Thanks for International College providing a whole English teaching environment, so I did not experience hard times getting used to the lectures in United State. Looking back at those two years in the state, I do not have any regret of making this choice. I would say that I could not be who I am without those two-year experiences.

Hi guys! My name is Owen Yang, the graduate of IBA in 2019. After graduation, I started my double master degrees of design and PR & Advertising in UNSW, Sydney. At the same time, I became a social media intern in Success Resources, the world's largest education seminar company across 35 countries. However, I always believe all of these would not happen that easy without the education I had in IBA. I truly feel so lucky to get the chance to be a part of IBA which changed my life by educating me to be a good leader who always thinks outside the box.
During my 3+1+X program to UNSW in my senior year, I got the chance to bring my startup idea to Australia and we were ranked in the top 9% in UNSW Peter Farrell Cup Start-up Competition 2018 among 500 groups at the end.
This also made me become the one to represent Taiwanese international students to be featured on the cover of the UNSW 2020 international student guide. The culture adaptability and awareness developed through my study in IBA gave me the great potential to fit in and stand out in any international occasion. Plus, gratitude is the greatest thing that IBA taught me in the past four years and it made me a better person who never stop thinking about making this world a better place.
Sarah • 何童羚
My name is Sarah Hor, I am from Malaysia. I am currently doing graduate program in Brock University, Canada, major in Marketing. I was grateful to have many professors and seniors that inspired and encouraged me during my study in IBA. I decided to study overseas since sophomore. The preparation to study overseas was not easy but I received support and courage from professors and seniors, which motivates me to be in Canada today. Being a business master student, I realize that solid foundation of business knowledge and language skills are crucial.
I am thankful that I was well educated in IBA, so that I can easily adjust to the environment abroad. IC started small, but we were close, like a family. We shared every joy and tears and it was satisfying to see each other’s growth. I was proud to be one of the members in IC and hopefully one day in the future, I will make IC proud as well.

I am currently studying in the Institute of Service Science in Tsing Hua University. The days in IBA is like a memorable four-year journey to me. During this four-year, I had met lots of friends and classmates from the world. In fact, I used to afraid of speaking English in front of everyone, but after the four years of training and practices in class, I could talk to friends and classmates In English confidently. Even better, the teaching environment here is desirable. The relationship between a professor and a student is like a friend, so you don't feel too stressed when studying in this international environment.
IBA program is particularly special to me because it focuses on student’s English interview and presenting skills, which gave me an edge over others. I appreciate that I am part of the IBA Family which helps me with English learning because it is such an important skill in a globalized world.
