Tue Oct 31 2023

Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU), home to one of the world’s top-ranked business schools, has partnered with University of Economics Ho Chi Minh to launch a new international MBA program in Vietnam. 

Launching in August 2024, the program will leverage the expertise of both institutions to provide students with a comprehensive business education, including a key focus on technology and green business. 

While students will study in Vietnam’s cosmopolitan former southern capital, Ho Chi Minh City, upon graduation they will earn an MBA degree from NTU. Graduates will also receive a Certificate of Completion in Business Administration, conferred by UEH. 

Professor Sử Đình Thành, president of UEH, said: “The collaboration between the two universities will provide participants with a holistic learning experience. By bringing together faculty from both institutions, the programme combines global perspectives with a strong grasp of the local context in Vietnam.”

NTU Singapore’s Nanyang Business School dean, professor Christina Soh, said: “UEH's faculty has a deep understanding and hands-on experience of Vietnam’s local business environment, encompassing cultural, economic, and political nuances. NTU's faculty contributes evidence-based knowledge and global insights to enrich this program.” 

The program launch comes as the two countries celebrate 50 years of shared diplomacy. As the Vietnamese government looks to the future, officials emphasize a focus on sustainable growth driven by digital transformation and technological innovation. Education is a key part of this plan.
