Testimonials from Students


“It’s a great journey of the GNAM week especially in the post-pandemic era! The insights from Professors and peer students broadened my understanding not only on how doing business in Asia and but also how to analyze the market in a systematic way. The valuable down-to-earth sharing from Professors and peer students are extremely realistic and I was provided a real-time platform to discuss and raise out my deep curiosities and questions. If you currently do not have the opportunity to travel around Asian and would like to plan or already do business in Asia, this is a great opportunity to come and feel the diversified markets from culture, economy, politics, technology, environment, and legal perspectives through the online course.”

Beyond that, giving an opportunity to interact with various students through learning teams provided a great way to understand different nuances of doing business in various regions thereby allowing us to go beyond the readings and into practical life.
