These workshops are conducted with the support of successful alumni who act as guest speakers.

The series of activities commenced with a lively exchange session featuring Mr. Doan Trung Thao, an esteemed alumnus from the Faculty of Business Administration and former Global Marketing Director of Orion.

Under the theme “Brand Equity and Brand Perception of HUFLIT: Leveraging Opportunities for Employment and Career Advancement”, Mr. Doan Trung Thao generously shared his extensive knowledge and expertise on harnessing HUFLIT’s strengths that students can immediately tap into to build a strong foundation for their careers, secure job opportunities, or even initiate their own ventures.
