A Life-changing Experience: Alumna Khoa Tran speaks about GHRM


Ever wondered what our GHRM MBA Program Alumni are doing after graduation? We’ve conducted a few interviews to let you know the career success of our alumni and the first one is Ms. Khoa Tran (2nd on the right), who is originally from can Tho, a South city of Vietnam.

After working for Cathay life Vietnam as Branch Development Officer for 3.5 years, Khoa decided to take a challenge and pursue Master’s degree. When looking for a program to study abroad, Ms. Tran found information about NSYSU on the website of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Vietnam and her personal interest in Human resource as well as the reputation and beautiful sights of NSYSU played a big role in her decision to join GHRM MBA Program.

Khoa is recalling great times being part of NSYSU GHRM MBA Program and the valuable skills she gained and things she experienced: English learning environment, multicultural student life, international friends… All these helped Khoa gain communication, teamwork and other skills, which are indeed important and useful for life and work. Both teaching and administrative staff of the NSYSU are friendly and supporting, so students feel almost like being home. Besides the classes, students have a chance to listen to guest speakers with different backgrounds; join company visits; attend projects organized by NSYSU and companies; and other interesting outdoor activities. Khoa loves and misses the people and the beauty of NSYSU and Sizihwan bay. 

Khoa believes, that studying abroad and especially choosing NSYSU GHRM MBA Program as final destination for obtaining Master’s degree gave her more career opportunities. She has been offered much higher positions with more job roles than before. “2 years at NSYSU changed my life and career path.”- says Khoa. Her favorite subjects were Research Methods and Work Psychology, since they helped to widen knowledge and prepare Khoa for her future job. She is currently working as HR manager of E-TOP Co., Ltd, a branch of Eclat Textile Co., Ltd in Vung Tau city, Vietnam.

Even though she was worried much about the studies and there were uncertainties such as how to pass the courses, how to support studies, how to get used to the new environment, etc., soon Khoa realized that she worried too much. Friends, teachers and program coordinators help not only in studying but also gave a chance to develop herself, experience and enjoy the life at NSYSU.

“I would recommend GHRM MBA Program at NSYSU to my friends who are looking for a Master’s program, a multicultural learning environment, a place to make new friends, discover and experience Taiwanese beautiful culture and people.” – concludes Khoa.
