Albert K. Ting’s myriad professional responsibilities—he’s chairman of two companies and director of another—are more than enough to keep him extremely busy. The fact that Ting has an equal amount of philanthropic commitments—he serves as director of more than a dozen nonprofit organizations in Taiwan alone—is testament to his dedication to improving the lives of others.

As director of the Lawrence S. Ting Memorial Foundation (founded in honor of his late father), Ting has worked with the Ministry of Education in Vietnam to set up 113 high school computer labs in 63 provinces of Vietnam.

It was during his time at MIT Sloan that Ting grasped the importance of the digital age. Now, through his work with the foundation, more than 200,000 Vietnamese high school students are utilizing these labs and bridging the digital divide.

“I am thankful for the education that I received at MIT Sloan,” says Ting. “It is a precious gift, and I try to ‘pay-it-forward,’ so others may benefit in the future.”

Ting’s commitment to giving back extends to the programs and people of MIT Sloan. He is an active supporter of G-Lab, having sponsored the first-ever G-Lab project in Vietnam, along with three other subsequent G-Lab projects in that country, and is a member of the Dean’s Circle, through Founder-level support of the School’s Annual Fund.

As a member of MIT Sloan’s Asian Executive Board, Ting has found an ideal platform for his passion and commitment to Asia and his alma mater.

“I strongly believe that an MIT Sloan education is an education for leaders,” says Ting. “That education should not be for people to focus solely on pursuits for themselves. MIT Sloan trains leaders to better the world around them.”
