Solvay Vietnam has made the choice to have a Faculty made of 100% teachers with Western education and professional experience. This guarantees that the most up-to-date management techniques and knowledge will be brought to our Vietnamese students. As most of our teachers have professional international experience, it also guarantees openness and flexibility to different business cultures. In 2017, 77 teachers from 14 nationalities taught at Solvay Vietnam.
Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management has high standards to recruit its teachers. They must prove their academic and/or professional experience at a high level (through publications and/or achievements) together with strong education skills. The same selection criteria are applied in Brussels and in Vietnam, and a very large majority of the Solvay Vietnam Faculty also teaches in Brussels. The assessment of their performance in delivering courses through students' feedback is continuous.
Our teachers are not only 100% Western, but they also have an in-depth knowledge of Vietnam, its economy, its society, and its business culture. As most of them are seasoned teachers at Solvay Vietnam, they have had the opportunity to meet many Vietnamese leaders and future leaders and teach them Vietnamese or Asian cases to understand business-specificities in Vietnam. Moreover, they are all passionate about the country, its people, and its quick changes.
Solvay Vietnam has made the choice to deliver the most practical MBA and specialized management Master's programs in Vietnam. Sharing the field experience of the participants is key in their development process and gives them the capability to use rapidly at work their improved skills. However, theoretical concepts are also used to allow the participants to acquire broader and longer-term views on the challenges they meet in business.
