Message from the Director

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I cordially welcome you to the YSEALI Academy at Fulbright University Vietnam. 

Southeast Asia is one of the fastest developing regions in the world. This rapid development comes with opportunities and challenges alike, which need to be met with a growing generation of young leaders in the decades to come. Our core mission is to foster young leaders who can spread positive impact in the Southeast Asian region and globally. 

We provide a platform for young professionals to come together with world leaders in the areas of entrepreneurship, tech & innovation and public policy to discuss and conceptualise solutions for some of the most eminent challenges facing society. Our flagship seminars are at the core of this process. Since our inception in 2020, over 200 talented individuals from across 11 Southeast Asia countries have been selected to become YSEALI Academy Fellows, and have been educated, inspired and mentored by world-leading experts through our seminars. Our experts are CEOs of big corporations, renowned scholars and public figures including Nobel Laureates.

By joining our seminars, you will expand your knowledge on emerging problems in Southeast Asia, build a strong professional network, and be inspired to become a change-maker in this region. 

I invite you to become part of this fantastic community.
