The multi resources offered by the Master of Global Trade program inspires me to develop a new perspective on global trade. I can combine my experience with technical and soft skills development through lectures, group projects and teamwork, guided by international practitioners and professors.
These skills are essential for building and driving the transformation of global trade and value chains towards sustainability. It is also a privilege to be part of the program which pioneers a new approach to curriculum development and learning through collaboration between the business sectors and the academe.
I adhere completely to the objectives of the program: to aspire, achieve our full potential, learn and engage in lifelong learning. Through this, I aspire to grow my career and become a leader in my company and communities where I can lead and contribute more to society.
While working in a global FMCG company and supplying essentials to our beloved consumers, I will do my part to help increase efficiency in the global trading network of Unilever to achieve sustainable growth.
It is my honor to join Master of Global Trade under the Hinrich Foundation Global Trade Scholarship that can satisfy all I need for achieving my big purpose of dedicating my gained knowledge after graduated to Unilever Procurement as well as supply chain competitive capability in this agile world.
