On the threshold of my high school graduation, I had my heart set on studying Social Work, as being Vice President of Student Union of Chu Van An high school, I had always loved designing and organizing social activities and events . Nevertheless, as the highly competitive university entrance exams approached, my parents had other ideas for me. Since the world was still reeling from the global financial crisis of 2008-2009, they urged me to major in courses related to business, which were very promising majors at the time. As is customary in Vietnam, I followed my parents’ wishes, and in hindsight I am very glad that I did. In my freshman year, however, I struggled constantly having to meet the requirements of classes focused on Philosophy, Informatics and other general subjects which are supposedly irrelevant to my own major- Business English. It was not until my sophomore year that my attitude began to change, I was taught in English a variety of specialized subjects related to economic and business such as International Marketing, International Business Transactions, Human Resource Management, Operations Administration and the like. These subjects not only provided me fundamental knowledge of international business but also inspired me to discover more about this field through interesting research projects and case studies of big corporations. During the last semester of my senior year, I worked as a logistics intern at Hanoi Beer Alcohol and Beverage Joint Stock
