Mr. Nguyen Thien Nhan, Member of the Politburo and Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, addressed the attendees at the First Convocation 2018:
“…I remembered 20 years ago, when American friends started the Fulbright Economic Teaching Program in the University of Economics, we thought of an excellent U.S. university in Vietnam already…
Because it’s a long way to achieve, so they started with Fulbright Economic Teaching Program without certification in master programs, then they moved to second stage to recognize master programs’ certification. And now, the third stage: Fulbright University Vietnam.
You are Vietnamese. You are learning English. And you get this opportunity. You are among the best students.
So I hope this university is not for average Vietnamese but the best Vietnamese. It’s your right and obligation to benefit as much as possible from this university…”
