“The knowledge and experiences gained from this program give me more insight into how to boost sustainability in agricultural supply chains.”
Linh is an Investor Relations Supervisor at Saigon Commercial Bank in Ho Chi Minh City and responsible for fundraising plan and forecasting business prospects. Prior to SCB, she was a Business Development Executive at SAM Agritech, a leading integrated exporter of fresh produce, where she worked on an avocado development project with New Zealand Plant and Food Research in Vietnam. Linh has also worked at Vietnam Airlines as a commercial executive for three years.
Linh earned a bachelor's degree in International Business Economics from the Foreign Trade University in Vietnam in 2015 and completed her Master of Global Trade at RMIT University through the Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship Program in 2022.
I am pursuing a career related to trading agricultural products and my company is a start-up in this sector. We aim to offer the best quality Vietnamese fruit to the global value chain.
I believe that there is no better place to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and work experience, as it relates to international trade, than the Master of Global Trade program. Agriculture in Vietnam starts from a low base and faces many challenges when exporting to foreign markets.
When I learned about the Hinrich Foundation Global Trade Scholarship, it seemed a vibrant experience to get the opportunity to meet professors and leading experts in this field. Furthermore, Hinrich Foundation is well known for trade research and initiatives to promote mutually beneficial global trade. To my way of thinking, the knowledge and experience from the Foundation would also give me more insight into how to design and optimize a sustainable supply chain of agricultural products in the global market.
I am confident that this MGT course brings me and my team a step closer to becoming a leader in global trade. Starting from avocado production as a pilot program, I hope to expand our production model to other crops with the aspiration of letting the world discover the fantastic taste of Vietnamese fruit.
