1910 Marketing Management Cohort

Thanks to the support of the SE department at BUV, I’ve had my very first internship at Vietnam Grand Prix LLC. as a Venue Service Intern. This experience grants me a chance to apply what I’ve learned at university in the practical context and understand opportunities as well as challenges in working in a huge business entity like VinGroup. Besides, this chance allows me to acknowledge whether my major is a good fit for me, which helps me to develop suitable strategies to get ready for the future working environment. In a nutshell, I suppose that working at Vietnam Grand Prix LLC. to prepare for Formula 1 Race in Vietnam is a once-in-the-lifetime opportunity to understand me better and get exposed to the real working environment to better prepare for my future.

1810 Accounting and Finance Cohort

The field trip to the Nestle Factory Tour was amazing. I was not only shown how to make a carton of Milo Milk pack from the raw materials to the final product but also learned about the factory’s possible solutions for risk management in the manufacturing process. What excited me most was the passion of those who are currently working at the factory when they talked about their jobs. Deep inside my mind, I wish that after graduation I could find a job that makes me happy every day as Nestle people did.
