A scholarship from BU enabled Ngan to fulfil her dream of studying abroad.

Since graduating she has returned to Vietnam to become a Senior Brand Executive at LUXASIA, the leading beauty omni-distribution platform of Asia Pacific, partnering with more than 120 luxury beauty brands.

In this role she has led the launch of DKNY ‘Stories’ and Marc Jacobs ‘Perfect’ in Vietnam, which were highlighted as best practice examples for the sector across Asia-Pacific.

Her group brands went on to achieve double-digit growth in 2019 and 2020 and saw Ngan named as a Young Emerging Star among 21 finalists across 15 markets of LUXASIA in 2021.

Ngan says: “I wouldn’t have the confidence and expertise to achieve so much over the past four years without my BU experience. Thank you for being such an important part of my journey. I believe the best is yet to come.”

What their colleagues say

Getting on board with us as a freshman in the beauty world, Ngan quickly learned and adapted herself to the new environment and mastered the assigned job. From being a Brand Co-ordinator, it did not take long for the company to realise her potential and promote her to Brand Executive, and then Senior Brand Executive responsible for one of the key group brands of the company, contributing to 40% of our business.

Ngan possesses a good business mindset, expertise in marketing, an excellent ‘can-do’ attitude and energy."
