BA (Hons) Marketing ManagementWhat do our students say?
BA (Hons) Marketing Management
Do Hoang Anh
1810 Marketing Management Cohort

For me, studying marketing is simply a result of being captivated by an advertisement billboard and wishing I could do similar work myself. I chose BUV because it provides a standardised international environment (facilities, in-depth knowledge, study environment) that I can find right here in Vietnam.

 

However, after studying at BUV, I realised that marketing is a “big world” with a lot of knowledge and diverse job opportunities. BUV provides me with an overview of all aspects of the industry, from fundamental knowledge of marketing, branding, and advertising to marketing in the digital age (Digital Marketing), in the service industry (Service Marketing), or marketing for startup purposes (Entrepreneurial Marketing). From there, I have a deeper insight into marketing and can gradually visualize which career direction is suitable for me.
