Pham Minh Dung and Nguyen Phuong Tu, two RMIT Vietnam undergraduate Commerce students are the winners of the P&G Asean Business Challenge 2011 along with four other team members.

P&G ASEAN Business Challenge is an annual regional competition particularly designed for talented prospective entrepreneurs from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Students who take part in the competition have chance to experience for themselves a career stint at P&G with the possibility of taking on the responsibility of becoming leaders for the company in the future.

The competition this year was open to many students from various universities in Vietnam. The top 30 candidates were selected and divided into five teams which eventually progressed to the national final round that took place between 13-18 April 2011. The students had six days working closely together in order to build a promotion plan and execute it for an entire day at Big C supermarket.

The Orange Turtle team which comprised of six students from RMIT Vietnam, University of Foreign Trade and University of Technology were judged to be the winning team of the competition. Every member of the winning team was awarded an iPad which they can bring along to Singapore for a further challenge with regional teams in June 2011.
