            A month after I graduated, I got a job offer at Microsoft through the Microsoft Academic College Hire program. Two years later, I’m now a Partner Development Manager in managing our five biggest partners in Vietnam. The MBA program inspired me with what I do now in the technology industry. It helped me to change my logical thinking. If you want to go further with your career, besides your working experiences, you should invest in upgrading your knowledge and skills.
