A PARTNERSHIP between the Business School and Thai Nguyen University (TNU) in Vietnam may lead to collaborations with other faculties, such as Science and Engineering and the Institute of Education.
TNU President, Assoc. Professor Dr Dang Kim Vui led a senior delegation from Vietnam to Manchester on Monday to meet staff and discuss programme and research collaborations.
Our guests met DVC Professor Gerry Kelleher, members of MMU International and Vivien Sheard, Associate Head: Postgraduate and Commercial Programmes, who is managing a project which will see Masters in Management programme delivered for students of TNU.
Thai Nguyen University is one of three regional universities with responsibility for the higher education of the 16 northern provinces, and the delegation made it clear they were keen to adopt an MMU curriculum for BA (Hons) Business Management and to establish links with other discipline areas, notably education management, social sciences, environmental sciences and English.
Vivien Sheard said: “For all of our visitors, this was their first visit to Manchester, and an extremely positive and successful one. We also discussed opportunities for Vietnamese students to study at MMU for part of and for the whole of their UG or PG degrees, and while they were here, they were very keen to visit Old Trafford!”
