The Head of International Partnerships, Steve Waterworth, and International Partnerships Manager, Dr. Ian D. Bennett, held talks in Hanoi with representatives of FPT School of Business & Technology to support the development of LJMU's Transnational education (TNE) ventures in Vietnam. The partnership model will enable students to remain in Vietnam while studying towards a LJMU academic award in the field of business.
During the talks, representatives of both institutions defined the partnership model, discussed contemporary trends in UK/Vietnam education and drafted a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was signed by senior representatives soon after. This important step has provided a springboard for further commitments from both institutions in realising the potential of supporting the TNE model in Vietnam as well as the demand for quality, UK education in the country.
