|GREETING FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
In order to meet the urgent need for qualified human resources and show the serious commitment of Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM) to the improvement of Vietnamese education, in May 2012, VNU-HCM decided to establish International Education Institute through the merger of its three educational centers: Centre for International Education, Foreign Language Centre and Centre for Human Resource Development.
In the past ten years, each of mentioned centers has accumulated sound experience, reached the target of establishing the professional studying environment which meets international standard for all students. Hence, this incorporation will enable us to take advantage of the common resources and the existing strengths so as to maximize its effective performance and build ties between educational institutions in Vietnam and throughout the world.
On behalf of the three centers, I would like to express our deep appreciation to VNU-HCM for their strong leadership and supports. I would also like to say thank you to those who trusted us and cooperated with us during the past time. And my appreciations go to all staff and faculty for their tireless dedication.
A lot of challenges are awaiting ahead for International Education Institute but I am confident that the traditions of the former centers together with the consensus of IEI team will lay a solid foundation for our continuous growth in the future, thereby meeting the expectations of the society.
On our road to development, we are looking forward to the continued cooperation of universities and organizations both in the nation and in the world.
