What do our students say?
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.
1910 Marketing Management Cohort
If I were to describe my journey at BUV in 4 words or less, the phrase “talk less, do more” would be the most fitting.
First comes “learning the trade”! In the early days at BUV, I felt a bit overwhelmed as we were immediately immersed in specialised knowledge. Our study time wasn’t long, to be honest: two semesters in a year, each lasting three months; however, it’s not about the number of hours but all about learning the right thing and sufficiently. The curriculum was streamlined, focusing entirely on practical knowledge.
What’s great about BUV is that we were encouraged to finetune our skills through various on-campus activities and internship placements – this helped me develop my practical skills right from the first year. If you’re the type of person who wants to learn by doing, then I believe BUV is a suitable choice.
