The College of Charleston School of Business' Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is one of few in the nation that requires a study abroad experience as part of its global curriculum. The Class of 2012 spent two weeks studying in Vietnam where they will experience global commerce, investment markets and new cultural perspectives as they prepare for career opportunities in the global marketplace.

"Vietnam is one of the top trading countries with the U.S.," says Alan. T. Shao, Dean of the School of Business. "It is a growing, emerging market that is becoming increasingly cost competitive with China. Our MBA students are very interested in pushing the boundaries for learning, and Vietnam fits with our global curriculum."

Last year's MBA class went to China and as a result of connections made during the trip, at least one graduate secured a position as director of operations for Akasha with offices in Shanghai and Ann Arbor, Mich.

While in Vietnam, the class of 30 students visited Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. In Ho Chi Minh City, they toured Nike's facilities, met with the Viet Thai Joint Stock Company, Indochina Capital, Navigos Company, and AA Furniture Company. While in Hanoi, they toured 54 Traditions Store, met with executives from several companies, and attended lectures at Foreign Trade University, a preferred partner university with whom the College of Charleston has a signed memorandum of understanding.
