“It is a once-in-a-lifetime project because of the extent to which it’s the right thing right now for Vietnam.

If you look at what’s happening in Vietnam right now, it’s an amazing country and it’s growing very quickly; but it’s also a country that faces some enormous challenges from climate change, from automation, the shift in the economy, and the change in what the nature of work is in the 21st century.

So if ever there was a time that Vietnam needed education and needed to rethink what their share of education looks like, this is that time,” – according to Dr. Mark Somerville (Olin College, U.S.A), Senior Academic Consultant of Fulbright University Vietnam.

“Applying successful education model that are widely used since hundreds of years ago would be much easier for Fulbright.

However, society can see that these education models have become inadequate when everything is constantly changing in this day and age, influenced by the fourth Industrial Revolution.

Many jobs are at risk of disappearing. Thus, it is important to prepare students for the technological changes; and that is why the liberal arts education plays such an important role,” shared Dam Bich Thuy, President of Fulbright University Vietnam.
