NU Students Experience ‘Life-Changing’ Global Trade Mission To Vietnam

In Announcements, by , on June 22nd, 2015

Twelve Niagara University graduate students recently participated in a 13-day international experience that reinforced their MBA curriculum and furnished them with knowledge of another country’s business practices, customs and culture.

The 2015 MBA Global Trade Mission brought participants to Vietnam this May 15-27, the first time the annual venture had visited the Southeast Asian nation. In previous years, NU students traveled to China, Singapore, Argentina, Latvia and several European countries, including England.

“The primary purpose of the MBA Global Trade Mission is to teach our students how to do business in other countries,” explained Dr. Peggy Choong, the associate dean of NU’s College of Business Administration who has served as the trip’s advisor since 2009. “We chose Vietnam because we view it, economically speaking, as where China was about 20 years ago. As such, there is vast opportunity for growth and development.”
