“The Master of Global Trade will deepen my understanding of global trade to be able to identify business opportunities and challenges, and develop effective business strategies.”

She is Head of Marketing and Communications at Siemens Healthineers, a leading medical technology company. The company has nearly 50,000 dedicated colleagues in over 70 countries, serving 18,500 patents globally. Yen is in charge of defining and setting market communications mission and strategy of relevant units and ensuring implementation and consistency with overall communications strategy and respective local regulations. Before this role, Yen worked as Key Account Coordinator and Marketing Team Leader for the firm.
Previously, Yen worked at Schlumberger OilField Services Company where she started as a Field Engineer and then became an Assistant Sales Manager.
She graduated from the University of Technology Ho Chi Minh City with a bachelor’s degree in Inorganic Chemical Engineering in 2011 and completed her Master of Global Trade at RMIT University in 2022 through the Hinrich Global Trade Leader Scholarship.
As my professional role and responsibilities grew within Siemens Healthineers, I developed an interest in analyzing economic and environmental implications, and understanding impact to various stakeholders. I am also learning about global trade challenges and evaluating possible solutions.
Before I joined the company, I had eight years of experience in several roles in different types of businesses. I have been constantly regarded as a highly effective contributing member and usually nominated to take on team leadership positions. I have strong motivation for success, good work ethics and strong self-learning ability. I am fully committed to making any project that I have taken to be a successful one.
It is my goal to gain relevant knowledge and skills, build my network and become an expert and leader in global trade through committed learning and active participation in the Master of Global Trade program.
With the huge resources provided by the Hinrich Foundation, both in funding my education and its community of experts, I hope to become a more effective ambassador and promoter of global trade.
