Overview

Broaden your business and management expertise and open the pathway to managerial roles through this MBA degree.

While taking a global outlook, the program’s content remains connected to Vietnam and to Asia, enabling you to keep up to date with trends in the world’s most economically dynamic region.

In this MBA, you will learn the fundamentals of corporate leadership, people management, business consulting, corporate marketing and financial analysis.

Your journey begins with the Design Thinking for Business core course, which will transform the way you think about problem solving and give you the confidence to tackle complex business issues.

After completing your core subjects, you can tailor your MBA by taking on a Minor (Technology and Innovation or Leadership). These aim to sharpen your capabilities, expose you to new perspectives, and help you navigate the challenges that modern businesses face.

The focus on solving real-world problems, such as through projects with industry partners and in gamified simulations, means that you can immediately apply what you learn to your workplace.

In preparing to be a business leader of the future, you will also develop essential soft skills in areas such as teamwork, collaboration, delivering business presentations and creative problem solving.
