The program also provides faculties with professional development resources and opportunities to collaborate with peers and share best teaching practices.
U.S Ambassador to Viet Nam Michael W. Michalak participated in the launch of the new Oracle Academy. He congratulated the participating institutions for addressing the critical developmental need of improving information technology education and skills in the nation. He also noted the leadership that the Vietnamese Government has demonstrated in this area, according to a press release from the U.S. Embassy.
Earlier this year, the Ambassador launched a U.S. Embassy Education Initiative to enhance educational cooperation between the two countries. Major goals of the Education Initiative include helping to increase competence and skill in the field of information technology and introducing more American curricula in Viet Nam.
Launched in 1997 as one of the most comprehensive academic offerings in the information technology industry, the Oracle Academy has partnered with more than 3,400 institutions and supported 397,000 students across 83 countries.
