Within my current role, I am responsible for developing and maintaining the export business between Nestlé Vietnam and other affiliates in the Nestlé Group, as well as its international distributors. My position provides an amazing opportunity for me to learn about the global business environment and coordinate with cross-functional teams from supply chain to technical functions.
I am inspired by the Master of Global Trade program. The curriculum is developed with high practicality and up-to-date mindset, strongly matching my expectation for an advanced study in global trade, as well as personal development goals.
Global business and trading routes are growing faster than ever, while my position at Nestlé Vietnam is a strong vantage point for outlook to the global business landscape. I truly believe the all-around curriculum created by industry leaders will further expand my knowledge.
Attending a prestige program like the MGT will also sharpen my business soft skills, including leadership, consultancy, negotiation and analytical thinking.
