For many years, Singapore has been the leading country of choice when it comes to doing business internationally. Factors like the abundance of skilled resources, an efficient and open economy, and stringent intellectual property rights protection make doing business in Singapore so coveted. Meanwhile, Vietnam has become one of the most dynamic, emerging economies of Southeast Asia, establishing itself as a stable, developing, and growing business destination.

This course combines pre-travel virtual class sessions with overseas seminars, business visits, and cultural activities. The primary focus of this travel program to Singapore and Vietnam is to contrast a well-established, world-renowned center of business with a rapidly emerging, high growth destination for international business.  

We are also offering travelers an option to visit Angkor Wat, the “City of Temples.” Angkor, in Cambodia’s northern province of Siem Reap, is one of the most important archaeological sites of Southeast Asia.
