RMIT Vietnam picked up its sixth Top Trade Services Award for excellence in educational services at a ceremony on April 22 at the International Convention Center in Hanoi.

The prestigious award, presented by the Ministry of Industry and Trade in association with the Industry and Trade newspaper, recognizes excellence in enterprises across many sectors: education, business, environment, distribution, finance, information, construction, tourism, entertainment, transportation, and health.

RMIT Vietnam President, Professor Gael McDonald, said the award was testament to the university’s values and its commitment to “real world” education.

“RMIT Vietnam is committed to providing high quality education and more choices to Vietnamese students, as well as greater access to internationally-oriented Australian university degrees without any need for students to leave Vietnam, and at a much lower cost than going to Australia,” she said. “We have invested in Vietnam out of a belief that we could play a particularly useful role in the country given the stage of economic development it had reached.”

“The university’s approach in 2016 was driven by the student experience and an emphasis on program innovation, as evidenced by a number of activities, including the replacement of hard copy textbooks with multimodal digital learning materials, the investment in a new learning space to build capacity in the use of augmented and virtual realities, and the launch of the Centre of Digital Excellence.”

RMIT Vietnam was also awarded a Top Trade Services Awards for 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2013.

RMIT Vietnam also received a Golden Dragon Award 2016 on April 8, from Vietnam Economic Times. The Awards were initiated in 2001 to recognize and encourage foreign enterprises that have recorded outstanding achievements. This recognition is considered from many perspectives, such as production and business activities, service provision, application of technological solutions for environmental protection, full implementation of tax obligations, ensuring employee rights, and actively participating in social activities.
