Tran Minh Hoang

MSc Strategic Management 2022, Marketing Director at Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk)

"Pursuing the MSc in Strategic Management was one of the best decisions I have made. After working for 14 years in various multinational corporations, such as PepsiCo, Unilever, and Marico, I have realized the importance of competitive and corporate strategy, technology and innovation strategy, strategic resource allocation, negotiation and decision-making techniques, and intercultural competency to become a leading edge and responsible leader in an increasingly complex and digitalized world. Completing this master’s degree has equipped me with these valuable learnings and given me the competitive advantage in the labor market to take the Marketing Director role at Vinamilk, the number one Food brand in Vietnam and the sixth largest dairy company globally."

“This is a world-class programme which develops strategic skills, leadership, and an understanding of the processes, techniques, and strategies that can decide the failure versus the success of an organisation. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a future business leader as it equips you to succeed."
