On behalf of the HSGA Executive Committee, I would like to thank Assoc. Vo Thi Ngoc Thuy, Rector of the school, teachers in the School Leadership Board and the Graduate Training Institute. From this community, we hope to organize many useful activities for graduate students to have more interesting experiences and open up many opportunities for career development.”
Students in Master’s programs are not only trained in professional knowledge but also practice skills to apply theory into practice. There have been many research projects of the students published in prestigious domestic and international scientific journals as well as applied and developed in the students’ own enterprises. At the HSGA launch event, the alumni shared their learning process, experience in carrying out scientific research projects as well as career development orientation with the Master program at HSU. Master Chau Kim Phuong – Human Resources Director of Aura Intelligent Living, MBA Course 3 valedictorian shared: “I have been fortunate to have been in the MBA program since day one, so this place feels like family and I can also confidently recommend HSU’s MBA program to others. The training program is not only application-oriented, but also builds theoretical foundations and scientific research methods for students. My thesis topic: “Assessment of factors affecting student happiness in private higher education environment in Ho Chi Minh City” guided by Dr. Phan Vo Minh Thang has also been published in the International Journal. Not only that, I have also applied this topic to develop the happiness index at my current business.” In addition, on this occasion, Master Kim Phuong and MBA students also had the opportunity to introduce and display business products of the enterprise, attracting the attention of many people at Hall G of Hoa Sen University.
The success of students and alumni in life and career is the success of the school in the mission of cultivating people. Along with standardizing the training program, HSU’s Graduate School of Education has been making efforts to improve the student experience through a care system, closely following learners’ learning paths, regularly organize activities and events to connect the community of students and alumni, with leading experts and with departments. Master’s programs at HSU not only equip students with in-depth knowledge and systems, but also create conditions for them to connect, exchange, experience and improve their own capabilities. The training products that the university invests in and builds are a qualified, elite workforce with good capabilities and qualities, capable of international integration, with a sense of innovation and continuous creativity.
