Le Hung, The Salford MBA student

Lê Tuấn Hùng came to Salford Business School from Vietnam to study for The Salford MBA. He had originally studied at the University of Transport and Communications in Hanoi, Vietnam, majoring in Construction Economics and after graduating, worked for a shipping company as a sales executive.

“My main job was to search for potential clients and convince them to use my company’s services, while dealing with and keeping existing clients the company had assigned. In this time, I achieved many new and well-known clients for my company. After that, I moved on to work for a Japanese freight forwarder as a sales manager.”

At this stage, Hùng realized that, if he wanted to progress his career, he would have to return to study to update his skills and to fill the gaps in his business knowledge.

“I realised that the practical experience and knowledge I had gained were not enough for the personal development of my career. At this time I also decided to study in a developed country to acquire this knowledge in the best way.”

On 18 July 2014, I attended in the graduation ceremony of my friend who graduated from Salford Business School. The ceremony was located at Media City UK, which is located in the most beautiful riverside of Manchester – Salford Quays.

It makes me recall my graduation ceremony last year, as a international student, my parents haven’t got the chance to join my graduation, it was a big pity for me. But one of my best friends called Roy joined my graduation ceremony, it made me so happy and moving, because he was not an international student based in the UK. He studies in China, it’s hard to get visa for the UK, and the flight ticket is not cheap for a Chinese student.
