Vin UniversityHanoi (Vietnam)
Curriculum Development Director of Engineering & Technology/Hospitality/Real Estate/Business Management Program
Vin University is a new, private, non-profit university established by Vingroup, with the mission to be the first world-class, internationally accredited and ranked university in Vietnam. Vin University has two overarching goals: excellence in teaching, and producing research that contributes to the key economic sectors of Vietnam.
The formation of Vin University Project has resulted from the collaboration of Vingroup with Cornell University. Cornell, an Ivy League institution based in Ithaca, NY, USA is involved in every aspect of development from infrastructure and campus reviews, to curriculum development and faculty hiring. Cornell‘s SC Johnson College of Business is providing extensive academic advisement in a variety of areas, drawing from a wealth of faculty expertise at multiple colleges and units at Cornell. Vin University aims to meet the QS 5-star rating standards and include the following schools: a School of Business, Hospitality, and Real Estate; a School of Engineering and Technology; a School of General Education; a School of Public Health and Health Services; a School of Nursing; and a School of Medicine. The University will be an English Medium Instruction (EMI) institution and plans to open for the inaugural class of students in Fall 2020.
Vingroup was established in Ukraine in 1993. It subsequently relocated to Vietnam and officially became Vingroup Joint Stock Company in 2012. Its mission is "to create a better life for the Vietnamese people." In 2016, Vingroup was recognized among the "Top 50 Most Valuable Brands in Vietnam" (by Brand Finance magazine). Today, Vingroup is one of the leading private enterprises in Vietnam, operating in six core business areas: real estate, retail, hospitality, education, agriculture, and healthcare. In 2016, education and healthcare became not for profit value based systems.
Pham Nhat Vuong is the founder and chairman of Vingroup, which has $ 3.9 billion USD in sales (2017) and a net worth of $5.5 billion USD (2018). Chairman Vuong is a visionary and true patriot of Vietnam and firmly believes that education is the single biggest catalyst that can transform the destiny of an individual, society, and the nation. His aspiration is to create a breakthrough in the Vietnamese education sector and to groom the next generation of leaders for Vietnam in the 21 century and beyond.
