On October 10, 2023, representatives from the Faculty of International Education of Campus II in Ho Chi Minh City and the New Brunswick University (Canada) delivered a presentation on the 'Case Study of Foreign Trade University and the University of New Brunswick' at the Canada-Vietnam Education and Scientific Cooperation Forum organized by the Consulate General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh City in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam.
In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Canada, the forum was honored by the presence of leaders from the Ministry of Education and Training, the Ministry of Science and Technology of Vietnam, the delegation of leaders from 22 universities and research institutes in Canada, and 80 universities and research institutes in Vietnam. With the aim of enhancing sustainable cooperation between the two countries and promoting collaboration between Vietnamese universities, research institutions, and their Canadian counterparts, the forum was highly successful.
Participating in the forum, representatives from the Faculty of International Education of Campus II of the Foreign Trade University in Ho Chi Minh City and their counterparts from the New Brunswick University were privileged to present a lecture on the theme 'Case Study of Foreign Trade University and the New Brunswick University.' The presentation highlighted practical collaboration experiences between Canada and Vietnam based on the 2+2 Business Administration Bachelor's Training Partnership Program. According to this program, students spend the first two years studying in Vietnam at the Foreign Trade University and then transfer to the partner institution in Canada, the University of New Brunswick, for the remaining two years.
During the exchange, representatives from Campus II outlined the advantages and valuable experiences in implementing the 2+2 Business Administration Bachelor's Training Partnership Program. Students benefit from a high-quality education, obtain globally recognized degrees, and a significant majority secure employment in Canada within less than three months of graduation.
This forum provides an opportunity to connect and promote collaboration between scientific research and technology development organizations in Vietnam and Canadian counterparts. It helps students gain a better understanding of the educational and scientific research context between the two countries. The forum marks a new step, opening up numerous prospects for Foreign Trade University students with diverse learning advantages, job opportunities, and open resettlement prospects in the 'Land of the Maple Leaf.'"
