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.

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. Once international travel gets back to normal, 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.
