The knowledge about trade, risk analysis and strategic management that I will learn from this program are critical for my role as a business strategy professional. I will be able to gain practical insights into the political dynamics of trading environments, develop and monitor the effectiveness of policies, and drive the creation of sustainable and more resilient strategy practice.
The incredible network of Hinrich Foundation researchers and alumni can be an invaluable resource in fostering meaningful discussion, and steering my strategy work alongside key policymakers, business leaders and academia.
I firmly believe that RMIT and the Hinrich Foundation are committed to make meaningful contributions to the Vietnamese community through the transformational powers of education and research. The Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship and its pathway of aspire, learn, grow and lead are greatly aligned with my core values.
My expectations for the Hinrich Foundation community include providing intensive support in research and setting up more education programs in Vietnam. The Master of Global Trade has set a remarkable example of high quality and practical leadership development programs tailor made for emerging industry leaders. I believe more partnership training programs like this will enhance the value of education, creating life-changing moments for any individual.
