The Vietnam Belgium Master Program is one of the most early and successful international training cooperation projects in Vietnam.

The Vietnam Belgium Master Program has made significant and significant contributions to the development of Vietnam’s education. More than 1000 students have earned a master’s degree in Business Administration and Public Management. This is a valuable knowledge and management resource at many businesses, corporations, state agencies of Vietnam and international organizations. In this formal graduation ceremony, Prof. Tran Tho Dat – Rector of NEU had enthusiastic remarks for new masters that “our country has entered a group of middle-income countries for nearly 10 years and is trying to transform itself to distribute further development, closer to the modern market economy in a constantly moving world full of opportunities and risks. Profit is a measure of good business performance but does not measure the benefits of public goods. If the market economy is based on the invisible hand of the market, there will be problems such as environmental pollution, the gap between rich and poor is too great … Perhaps one of us also wants to be happy. Therefore, it is necessary to have the hands of business men and managers. We want you to be entrepreneurs, talented managers, happy and responsible for making our country a country that is not only richer but also happier.”
At the same time, the leaders of the two schools also recognized the efforts and creativity of the staff of the ISME in managing the program management. Join the graduation ceremony as a parent of a graduate student, Prof. Tran Van Nhung had a moment of sharing and feeling full of emotion with all the teachers of the two schools, students and families. To express their gratitude to the program, the new masters respectfully presented meaningful souvenirs and fresh flowers to representatives of the two schools, ISME and the Belgian – French Community in Vietnam. Graduation ceremony closed but images filled with joy, happy smiles with family, friends and colleagues still kept in mind of every new master.
