Business School signs agreement with two Vietnamese universities
The University of Sydney Business School has partnered with two leading Vietnamese universities to offer a unique international study and work opportunity.

Top students at the University of Economics and Vietnam International University in Ho Chi Minh City will be eligible to complete two years of coursework in Vietnam followed by two years in Australia.

On completion of two years of study at the University of Sydney, participating students may be eligible to take advantage of the Australian Government’s Post-Study Work stream visa to remain in Australia and undertake paid employment for a further two years.

University of Sydney Business School Dean, Professor Greg Whitwell said the agreements were part of strengthening the University’s international bonds and unrivalled student offerings.

“Business School students already have the opportunity to do immersive study tours in Vietnam and the Philippines, so these agreements represent a strengthening of our existing commitment to providing a truly international business education,” Professor Whitwell said.

“We’re excited to partner with these esteemed institutions and bring more bright young minds to Australia, where they will undoubtedly make a considerable contribution to our school and hopefully to society.”

The opportunity will be available to University of Economics students undertaking a Bachelor of International Business, and International University students undertaking a Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Business Administration or Bachelor of Finance and Banking.

University of Sydney Business School Deputy Dean (Students and External Partnerships), Professor Suresh Cuganesan said the partnerships would equip students with the knowledge, skills and global outlook necessary to thrive in the workforce.

As the world reopens, we are committed to providing the best international business education to those who are ready for the challenge.

“Vietnam is an Asian economic powerhouse, a rapidly emerging centre of business innovation, and the Vietnamese government is encouraging human capital development in business and STEM. There is a large and under-catered need for business education for managers and executives who can not only manage business locally but also in an international context.

“Australia has a strong partnership with Vietnam and these agreements will help ensure both countries make the most of those opportunities for decades to come.”

The agreement strengthens the University of Sydney’s connection with Vietnam currently active through the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre and the Sydney Vietnam Institute.
