    Testimonial

    I joined the MIB program after I was promoted to a managerial position with a multicultural company. I work with not only Vietnamese people but also Czech people and people of other backgrounds. So one of the challenges I face is managing a diverse team. In my first semester, I learnt about contemporary issues in managing in a cross-cultural environment. The course revealed the kinds of problems that arise and provided solutions for what to do. It was very useful.

    As I have a dream to export my coffee, I wanted to learn more about how to do international business. I’m the second generation in my family’s coffee roasting business. I finished the MIB within one year. In that time, I learnt a lot. I learnt how to network with other people and how to make a business presentation. The MIB program is very up to date. In the classroom, everyone was really friendly. I could easily connect with my lecturers.
