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 guarantees also openness and flexibility to different business cultures.

Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management has high standards to recruit its teachers. They must prove their academic and/or professional experience at 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 teaches also in Brussels. The assessment of their performance in delivering courses through students feed-back is continuous.
Our teachers are not only 100% Western, they have also an in-depth knowledge of Vietnam, its economy, its society, 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 teaching to them on Vietnamese or Asian cases to understand the specificities of business in Vietnam. Moreover they are all passionate about the country, its people and its quick changes.
