Program Description:

Semester 1, 2019


Doing Business in Vietnam:
Ambitions, Growth, Resilience, and Reality

An ASEAN member and a signatory of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans Pacific Partnership, Vietnam has enjoyed rapid economic growth over the past three decades. As Australia’s 11st largest export destination, Vietnam has attracted the operations of many Australian organisations. The course will provide CBE students with unique opportunity to be in Hanoi, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh city, and the Mekong Delta, where they learn to understand (i) how Vietnam transformed into a lower middle-income country, (ii) Australian business investment and operations, (iii) regional business and social entrepreneurship, (iv) infrastructure challenges in times of aging population and inequality and (v) the daily life of a Vietnamese family in the Mekong. Supported by National Economics University (Hanoi), University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City, KOTO, and Coteccons, students will undertake seminars, cultural/language training, corporate site visits, and interactive industry events, thereby gaining in-depth understanding of contemporary Vietnam and subsequently personal and professional growth.

In April 2019, CBEA3066 Global Business Immersion students (up to 26 students) will undertake a faculty-led 2-week study tour from north to south Vietnam - Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city, and Ben Tre (Mekong delta) from 7 to 20 April 2019 (in-country days) plus international travel time.

There will be 20 New Colombo Plan Mobility Grants ($3,000 each) and up to 2 CBE Global Business Immersion Grant ($1,500 each) for eligible Australian students.

This course is open to undergraduate students of the ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) and non-CBE students, with preference given to those who have completed at least 96 units of their program by the end of 2018. The course counts as a List 1 elective in any CBE undergraduate program or towards the Corporate Sustainability, International Business, Management and Marketing majors in CBE.

Students from other ANU Colleges can also apply to undertake the CBEA3066 course. However, they must seek enrolment approval and program advice from their respective Colleges.
