Flinders has entered into a new international partnership with Ho Chi Minh City Open University to open up new study pathways for Vietnamese students to undertake Flinders degrees.
As part of the partnership, students of the Advanced Studies Program at Ho Chi Minh City Open University will now be able to gain admission (and transfer credit) to Flinders degree programs in international business, innovation and enterprise, accounting and finance.
These programs include the Bachelor of Business (International Business), Bachelor of Business (Innovation and Enterprise), Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) and Bachelor of Commerce (Finance).
Last Tuesday 6 June, Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International) Sebastian Raneskold signed the partnership agreement alongside Associate Professor Nguyen Van Phuc (Rector, Ho Chi Minh City Open University) and Matt Schultz (Director, Marketing and Recruitment, International Centre, Flinders University).
The agreement helps to cement Vietnam as a leading international education market for Flinders and honours the contribution that Vietnamese alumni from Flinders have made to Vietnamese educational policy and standards since the mid-1980s.
