Bio

Joni Su graduated in 2011 with a dual Bachelor of Arts degree from National Taiwan University and Waseda University, Japan. In National Taiwan University, she majored in International Relations in the Political Science Department where she utilized a variety of social sciences to raise her global awareness. With a responsible attitude and outstanding performance, she not only received the Presidential Award (top 5% of students in academics), but also qualified for the Shimamura Scholarship to enroll in a double-degree program at Waseda University.

During 1.5 years in Waseda University, she was immersed in Japanese culture and received her degree in Global Political Economy from the School of Political Science and Economics. The interdisciplinary curriculum cultivated her ability to consider diverse perspectives, to analyze real problems from global and multiple aspects, and to draw up and implement practical solutions.

After graduating, she worked in a non-profit tourism association. She has 3 years of experience in project management, including international conferences, cross-organizational cooperation, travel and culinary exhibitions, and tourism promotions, meetings and trade shows. Through these experiences, she not only developed leadership qualities, but also refined independent and team-oriented working abilities.

It is her tourism-related job that motivates her to study in sustainability management. While marketing plays an important role for sustaining a competitive advantage, she also sees the importance of protecting the beautiful natural world, which provides sustainable incentives for people to travel. As an MSc sustainability management graduate, she hopes to help public or private sectors to obtain a sustainable path to improve both environmental conservation and economic development.
