Our alumni Juliet ShweGaung, the chapter leader of HFAA Myanmar, Nyi Nyi Han (Myanmar, VGU, GPEM ’17) and Thuy Ho (Vietnam, HK Baptist University, MAIJS ’15) recently organized an information session in Yangon, Myanmar for scholarship and career opportunities with the Hinrich Foundation and Myanmar Pou Chen, a leading global sports footwear manufacturer.

The April 7 event was attended by 30 participants. They learned about the offer of a fully-funded scholarship to study Master of Science in Global Production Engineering & Management at the Vietnamese-German University in Ho Chi Minh City. The scholarship also comes with an opportunity to become part of Pou Chen’s next generation of factory managers. 

Pou Chen Group and the Hinrich Foundation has so far sponsored three scholars from Myanmar since 2015. Scholars have a well-designed work placement for 6 months and a guaranteed job after graduation with Myanmar Pou Chen, which has about 470,000 employees worldwide.

Final interviews are underway. We look forward to welcoming new scholars in August!

Big thanks again to Juliet, Nyi Nyi and Thuy!
