Sang Nguyen | Vietnam
Bachelor of Business (Management), Sydney Campus
My name is Sang Nguyen, 22. My last name is quite typical for people from my area. I’m Vietnamese. I came to Kent after being awarded a full scholarship for my previous academic achievements in 2013. I graduated in the Bachelor in Business with a management specialisation in Dec 2014. On the first day arriving at Sydney, I immediately fell in love with the vibe of this city, the people and the unique mixture of Eastern and Western culture. What I like most about Kent was the connected feeling between students, staffs and the teachers. Students may not get that in some universities, but at Kent you can sense that everyone cares for each other, like a family.
What impressed me about my course at Kent was the hands-on knowledge I obtained during the studies and also my teachers. My lecturers were significantly supportive. They always updated our class with current global business news and theories.
Kent’s flexible class schedule allowed me to also gain working experience while I studied. It was sometimes a challenge while studying to complete a busy day and still optimise my academic performance, but I believe it is all about understanding how to balance work-life and study.
Right after I completed my final semester at Kent Institute, I was offered a position at Kennard’s Self Storage as Assistant Manager. The role requires responsibility over business level operations, sales and marketing and customer service management. My aim is to be recognised as a Certified Professional Marketer with the Australian Marketing Institute, and it’s going to be an interesting.
One of my key values is about creating choices and not waiting for chances to happen. Studying at Kent is similar; it is about grasping the lifetime opportunity and finding yourself a “blue ocean” where you can be innovative.
