My Nguyen completed her Graduate Diploma of the RMIT Master of Global Trade in 2021 through the Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship.
I have always been interested in how the global economy impacts world peace and Mr Merle Hinrich’s statement about trade resonates with me. He says, “Peace is a natural effect of trade, but only when trade is mutually beneficial and sustainable for peace and prosperity.”
I believe the Master of Global Trade program will bring to life his vision and further build our leadership in trade. As a beneficiary of the program, I hope to increase my experience in my current role as Head of Product and Marketing and further my pathway to a regional and global role. This requires deeper knowledge, understanding and ability to facilitate sustainable trade among countries and companies.
With the combination of work experiences, structured academic programs and engagement in alumni projects, I will be able to contribute and share my talents within my current company and with the rising stars in the Hinrich Foundation and RMIT University.
I commit to be a mentor for fresh graduates who will start their career in trade, sales and marketing soon. It is also my vow to participate in building case studies and best practices to be shared among my post-graduate peers and fellow students.
Upon the completion of the MGT program, I will be able to achieve my professional and personal mission, which is not only to earn the master’s degree, but also to meet and learn from people from different backgrounds and industries. I wish to continue the growth of my career and the Samsung business, and to contribute to the future generations of global trade leaders. I hope to participate in facilitating sustainable global trade that subsequently results in world peace.
