The Ho Chi Minh City University of Economics celebrated its 30th birthday (Oct 27, 1976 - 2006) and received the title “Labor Hero” for its great contributions to education and training as well as its esteemed scientific research on economics.
Over the past 30 years the university has made many contributions to the training and cultivating of economists. As well it has assisted in researching and consulting policies for the party, the state, and a community of enterprises and management agencies, all serving in the national economic development, especially during the renewal.
So far, the HCMC University of Economics has trained 120,000 undergraduates, 3000 MAs, and nearly 355 PhDs. Thousands of cadres have benefited from the knowledge cultivated and administered by the university in relation to economics and business administration.
The university is implementing a credit-training program in some classes and intends to expand this kind of training as the year progresses.
Now, the students as clients can choose the case studies, content, timing, exercises and even the lecturers for their personal training. If this happens, teachers and lecturers must make an extra effort to self-promote and maintain competitiveness; otherwise, potential students may overlook them.
Attending the meeting were hundreds of lecturers and thousands of students of the institution.
