More than 1,000 graduates of RMIT Vietnam celebrated their achievements in front of more than 2,500 family members, friends and well-wishers at three ceremonies held this week in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

The 509 Bachelor of Business graduates was the largest graduating cohort, with 133 completing the Bachelor of Business (International Business) program. The second-largest cohort graduated from the Bachelor of Communications (Professional Communications) program, with 106, followed by the Bachelor of Commerce program with 99.

The diversity of RMIT Vietnam’s student body was once again on display, with 69 international students from 24 different countries completing their studies.

RMIT University Vice-Chancellor and President Martin Bean told graduates attending the Ho Chi Minh City ceremony that they had all been united by a determination to gain knowledge and experience to prepare them for life and work. “No matter how or when you joined us, you all shared a desire to learn and to succeed,” he said.

He emphasized that their degrees are an achievement that requires commitment, determination, tenacity, and sacrifice, and he was proud that the university had given graduates the confidence, knowledge, skills and connections they need to succeed.

“And as you walk forward, remember that change will be constant, and courage is the key,” he said. “Your success will lie in the moments when you stumble, in the moments when you doubt, in the moments when you have to draw on the inspiration you feel as you stand here today - fueling your determination to pick yourself up and take the next step. It’s in those moments when everything you’ve learned at RMIT will count.”

Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Committee for Culture, Education, Youth and Children, Mr. Pham Tat Thang, attended the ceremony in Hanoi and acknowledged RMIT’s valuable contribution to not only providing quality education but also sharing expertise with the wider education community in Vietnam.

“I am confident that with the knowledge and the skills you have developed at RMIT, you will be successful and become good citizens who will make meaningful contributions to your organizations, community, and your country in this ever-changing world,” he told the graduates.
