商業新聞討論

Stephen Downing

Stephen 來自美國,畢業自 Tulane University 並主修商學,後來於交通大學取得MBA資格,目前是交大的博士候選人,專攻商業競爭與策略。平時他喜歡游泳、彈吉他,最喜歡的電影是1994年的《黑色追緝令》。


課程簡介

本課程專注在口說的練習,教材選自 Bloomberg, HBR, Vox 等等媒體。老師將於課前公佈當週教材,每週1-2篇選文,並提供討論問題。譬如說: Nike and the history of “commodity activism”

透過這堂課,學員將能補充商業時事,同時更理解商業運作的邏輯。如果你的口說已有一定程度,本課程將幫助你突破瓶頸、再往上進步一個層級。如果你需要應對外國客戶,本課程將幫助你擁有源源不絕的話題。

課程目標

  • 增進商用英語能力
  • 增進商用單字量與閱讀能力
  • 增進表達想法與參與討論的能力

進行方式

老師將於每週課前指定當週的文章,每週1篇短文。課程前半段,學員將練習總結、回顧、討論文章內容,老師將會適時提出問題以引導討論。

課程後半段,我們將結合課程內容與自身的職場案例,學員有許多機會練習以英文討論商業主題,這將有助於職場中英語情境的表現,包括出差、開會、參展、con-call‧‧‧ 等等。

Really useful class which make me try to arrange my thoughts of news. I also like Stephen’s choices of articles, not only help me to know what happened in business world but also make me try to know what also happened in Taiwan. If you’re also need talk with your colleagues in English and need to describe something happened in the world, don’t miss this class!

This class is definitely not for beginners, which is perfect for students interested in advanced and intellectually stimulating discussions. Stephen's breadth and depth of knowledge, and willingness to share it is very refreshing. He aggressively encourages students to engage in thoughtful conversation, and is innovative in how he arranges the sessions. I have already signed up for his next class!

Stephen is good at guiding us to discuss the topic of HBR. Through quick summary to provide a brain storm. If you are looking for a chance to experience professional MBA, then I recommend you to attend his sessions.

Stephen 和大家的互動很好, 對於新創的商業模式也很了解. 閱讀教材因為是 HBR, 內容多且比較深入, 如果可以先準備point of discussion, 學生可以提早準備

收獲良多,不過如果可以在上課前先提供討論題綱,會更幫助非相關領域的學生先查詢相關知識,以更踴躍參與討論。
