Senior Executive in Residence Elizabeth Nien Tze Chen launches a new series of conversations for NYU Shanghai students. Once each semester, Elizabeth Chen will invite a prominent member of the business community to discuss life, interests, opportunities, and responsibilities beyond the corporate world. How must undergraduate students perceive learning beyond the requirements of the core curriculum? What are the ways in which the pursuit of a business degreeĀ couldĀ be combined with the opportunities to take courses in the humanities, theĀ artsĀ and the social sciences?Ā  How could students incorporate engineering and science into their undergraduate academics?Ā What is the best combination for a successful and purposeful life that students could consider at crucial stages of their academic life? These are some of the probing questions Elizabeth Chen will discuss with her special guest.
