ICDL Vietnam Expands Strategic Partnership in New Agreement with Vietnam National Economics University
An agreement to work on building students’ digital skills was signed between ICDL Vietnam and the Vietnam National Economics University (NEU) on 5 February. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Professor Dr Tran Tho Dat, Principal of NEU, and Ms Dao Mai Anh, the CEO of ICDL Vietnam, in the presence of Ms Cáit Moran, the Irish Ambassador to Vietnam.
The agreement, in which NEU commits to support ICDL programmes in their teaching, sets out the basis for collaboration between ICDL Foundation and NEU in enhancing proficient use of ICT by Vietnamese students.
Speaking at the ceremony, Ms Cáit Moran said, “ICDL is the world's leading computer skills certification. With over 20 years of experience in the delivery of quality certification programmes worldwide, I believe ICDL will play an important role in the development and deployment of an international standardised IT scheme towards which the government is heading.”
Professor Dr Tran Tho Dat also expressed his expectations for this collaboration, saying, “In the digital era, NEU understands that the requirements of training, standardisation and the improvement of computer skills, of students in particular, and Vietnam workforce in general, are very necessary. I hope this cooperation will improve the quality of IT education of NEU students, thereby enhancing the competitiveness of students and raising the quality of the labour force of Vietnam.”
