In 2021, YSEALI Academy at Fulbright University Vietnam (Fulbright) plans to offer three flagship seminars addressing challenging issues facing the region such as energy economics and policy, contemporary cybersecurity challenges and opportunities, and fundamentals of startup investing in Southeast Asia. Each seminar will be led by a YSEALI Academy faculty who will oversee the curriculum development and the delivery of the seminar.  The lead faculty will collaborate with our affiliate faculty from the Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management, practitioners from the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Fulbright, international and regional scholars, industry experts to development learning materials and activities that are academic rigorous and yet practical to young professionals.

YSEALI Academy’s main mission is to organize seminars and workshops fostering the capacity for young professionals, juniors and middle management levels aged 25-40 from across Southeast Asia (Fellow). Specifically, applicants from all 10 ASEAN member states and Timor-Leste between ages 25-35 with no previous YSEALI experience or YSEALI alumni between ages 36-40 are eligible.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, in the first year we will offer the seminar series virtually utilizing cutting-edge technology to maximize Fellows’ learning outcomes and networking opportunities.  Starting in 2022, we will offer face-to-face seminars in Vietnam with experiential learning and other active learning pedagogies, including company and institution visits, cultural immersion, and excursions.
