Best of both worlds

Loc and his team received third prize at the RMIT Business Plan Competition 2012

RMIT Vietnam student Nguyen Huu Loc combines a mind for business and a passion for sport.

For Bachelor of Commerce student Nguyen Huu Loc, and perhaps for many other young people, combining both a career and personal interests might seem an impossible task. However, during his time at RMIT University Vietnam, Loc has found a way to balance the two and follow his passion.

It was a one-of-a-kind experience going to RMIT Vietnam, Loc says, where he could pursue a world-class education within an innovative and engaging learning environment. State-of-the-art facilities at the University also allowed him to further develop his passion for basketball.

His participation in these extracurricular activities strengthened his skills in teamwork and leadership, and he was able to bring these skills into the classroom where he became a significant contributor in group discussions and activities.

Under the guidance of entrepreneurship course lecturer James Cooper, Loc developed a business plan for a basketball-themed pub that his team presented and won third prize at the RMIT Business Plan Competition in Melbourne last year.

Loc realised that basketball and business complemented each other in advancing his career and his personality. Now he is able to pursue both his passions, and that would have never happened if he hadn’t chosen to study at RMIT Vietnam. Because of this choice, Loc found the key to unlock the possibilities.
