Fulbright University Vietnam Welcomes Diep Dzung to the Board


Diep Dzung joins the Board of Trustees bringing experience in management and a deep understanding of Fulbright’s mission and vision.

Fulbright University Vietnam announced the addition of Mr. Diep Dzung to its Board of Trustees.

Dzung is no stranger to corporate financial leadership in Vietnam. In 2015, he was elected Chairman of Saigon Co.op, one of the largest retailers in the country, in large part because of his demonstrated record of corporate leadership. Dzung managed an 11 percent growth in Co.op’s revenue last year despite economic difficulties. Under his tenure, Saigon Co.op has also been recognized for its improved service quality and successful expansion of supermarket locations. He also is currently on the Board of Management for Ho Chi Minh City’s Development Bank.

Dzung previously served as the General Director of Ho Chi Minh City Finance and Investment State-Owned Company (HFIC), a state-owned financial investment firm. As the General Director, he helped strategize how to best represent State capital in enterprises with State stakes, focusing on improving competition and business efficiency. He played a vital role in the building of Tan Cang – Hiep Phuoc Seaport, a strategically located seaport set to grow trade in southern Vietnam.

Prior to HFIC, Dzung helped build the Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone and was its Deputy General Director since 2004. He also helped build Phu My Hung Urban Area in 1997, a modern urban multifunctional area that built upon wetlands in Ho Chi Minh City.

“I am honored to play a part with Fulbright as it transforms the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP) into the Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management (FSPPM) as well as expands the Fulbright name and vision to an undergraduate program,” said Dzung.

“Dzung previously attended the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program and later lectured in Financial Analysis at the school. He is an embodiment of what we hope to see in a graduate from one of our programs,” said President Dam Bich Thuy. “I believe that his wealth of work experience and understanding of our mission will be an asset for Fulbright.”

Dzung won Fulbright Scholarship to study in the U.S in 1999. He holds a Master’s degree in Corporate Finance from Bentley College and a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Ho Chi Minh City.
