Advanced Master Strategy & Management of International Business (SMIB) study trip is one of the most anticipated and highlighted as the key core course in the program. My heart leaps up on the way to Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City. This tropical monsoon city with its oldest culture in Southeast Asia has a long history as the capital of French protectorate and unfortunately has undergone the misery of war. Now Ho Chi Minh City has transformed itself as the fastest-growing economies among ASEAN-6 countries. As ESSEC Asia Pacific lands at the heart of ASEAN, the school has reached its arms to the radius around, enriching this 4 days trip with carefully arranged MNCs and local SMEs visit and networking sessions.
