Graduation ceremonies held on November 30 in Hanoi and November 27 and 28 in HCMC.

More than 200 graduates walked proudly across the stage of the National Convention Center in Hanoi on November 30 to collect a testamur for their newly-acquired academic degrees.

RMIT Vietnam President Professor Gael McDonald congratulated the new graduates on their achievement and commented on the university’s commitment to Vietnam.

“RMIT Vietnam has been growing and developing, ensuring that our range of programs continues to reflect the needs of industry and that our teaching is of the highest quality,” she said.

“Our commitment to Vietnam remains central to our operations. In 2017, we have introduced a number of new programs that will contribute significantly to the development of the country. New programs include bachelor’s degrees in Tourism and Hospitality Management, Design Studies, Digital Marketing, and Languages. To foster the rapidly-growing spirit of entrepreneurship in Vietnam, we also will soon introduce a Graduate Certificate in Business Startups. More new programs will follow in 2018.”

A highlight of the ceremony at the Hanoi campus was the conferring of an Honorary Doctorate upon Mr. Nguyen Xuan Vang, former Director General of the Vietnam International Education Cooperation Department at the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), for his distinguished contributions to Vietnamese education.

After serving two terms as President of the Hanoi University of Foreign Studies, Mr. Vang made outstanding contributions to transition it to the Hanoi University, which was the first Vietnamese university to offer full curricula in English, from 2002.

He then worked at MoET in 2008, where he served as Director General of the Vietnam International Education Development, followed by stints in the International Cooperation Department and, recently, the Vietnam International Education Cooperation Department.

RMIT Vietnam’s prestigious President’s Award at Hanoi campus was conferred upon outstanding Bachelor of Business (International Business) graduate Duong Hong Nhung, who graduated with distinction and impressive achievements outside of her studies.

At ceremonies for 1,162 graduates at the University’s Saigon South campus on November 27 and 28, Honorary Doctorates were also presented to the Co-Founder and CEO of VinaCapital, Mr. Don Lam, and the President of the Ho Chi Minh City Peace and Development Foundation and former Vice Chair of the National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Ms. Ton Nu Thi Ninh.

The President’s Award at Saigon South campus was presented to Bachelor of Business (International Business) graduate Mai Duc Hieu.
