Hung Duy Tran (MSc Corporate Finance 2010)

Hung is currently our International Alumni Ambassador for Vietnam.


I have been working for  some world leading firms and organizations as the likes of Shell, PwC, USAID project for more than 10 years. I am currently working as an independent financial adviser for International Financing Donors and Government of Vietnam.

Why did you choose to study at the University of Reading?


There were several reasons. First and foremost, I found the finance program in ICMA centre is very practical and well-structured that suited my career direction. The reputation of Henly Business school together with excellent facilities of ICMA centre were driving my application. Another good reason was that the Whiteknights campus is the environment that I really love to be there without any doubt. 

What was the best bit about living and studying in Reading?

The large Whiteknights campus is exceptionally amazing with beautiful parkland, green open spaces, lake, sport facilities. Reading town is not too big but you can find anything that you needs there and the city location is very convenient for  travelling to London and other key cities in the UK. All of those have made my student life to be unforgettable with great experience.

What top tips would you give to students who are beginning their studies?

Be well prepared for studying your  course and enjoy the student life in Reading.

What are you up to now? How did you get there?

Doing my job efficiently and effectively through my in-depth knowledge and motivation.

How has the University helped you in your career ?

It helps a lot in different ways. Generally, I have learnt a great deal of knowledge and experience in financial sector. I can say that I was not only getting a world-recognized degree, but also building my profession from my study.

What University activities are you still involved with and why do you volunteer?

I am an International Alumni Ambassador for Vietnam on voluntary basis. For me, it is a good way of giving back. I hope  with this capacity, I would be able to foster and promote the development of beneficial relationships among the University’s alumni,students, staff, the wider University community, and the general public. In particular, I wish to help prospective students from my country  by answering their questions on the University and student life.

What does the University mean to you and what is your favourite memory?

Student life in Reading is one of the best part of my life. Thanks the University of Reading for the great student experience that I have had.
