BUV holds MBA Graduation ceremony 2020
Oct 02, 2020
On the 24th of September at the house of the British Ambassador to Vietnam, an emotional and formal graduation ceremony was held for MBA graduates of British University Vietnam (BUV).
The ceremony welcomed Sir Gareth Ward, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the UK to Vietnam, Prof. Dr. Raymond Gordon, Vice-Chancellor of BUV, guests of honour alongside parents and international faculty staff – who had accompanied students throughout their 2 years at BUV, as well as on their journey of conquering knowledge and career development.
BUV’s MBA graduates will be awarded honoured degrees by University of Staffordshire, which is globally acknowledged and opens various and sustainable career opportunities in the future.
On the collaboration with BUV, Sir Gareth Ward, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the UK to Vietnam remarked: “We have been maintaining an excellent strategic partnership for the past 10 years. During these troubled times due to COVID-19, international travels and overseas studies have become quite a challenge, which further emphasizes the significance of Vietnam-based courses awarded with a globally-recognised British degree, such as the MBA programme at BUV. We have high hopes for BUV’s new MBA graduates as you are the living proof for the effective and sustainable educational collaboration between the UK and Vietnam, and from this day onwards you will further demonstrate your positive contributions to the economic development of Vietnam as well as the world.”
International standard education and output qualities are the selling factors that draw experienced professionals and managers to BUV’s MBA course. For the new MBA Graduates, graduation day is a doorway to new career potentials and opportunities to expand their networking which will boost their competitive advantage and make way for professional advancements.
Speaking on behalf of all students about their days at BUV, Do Minh Nam, the youngest member of the 1805MBA cohort, said he felt very proud and lucky to have been accompanied by his cohorts – who came from different industries, jobs, and positions – through a challenging yet unforgettable journey at BUV where “you have to balance between your full-time job and your studies, but today everyone had reached the goals set at the very beginning of the programme.” Nam also showed sincere appreciation for the caring academic as well as supporting staff who gave students “an opportunity to experience an international educational environment with state-of-the-art facilities and high-quality British programmes, making BUV the leading international university in Vietnam.”
“Two of my employees were BUV’s MBA students”, Mr. Alain Cany, Chairman of Jardine Matheson Vietnam, shared: “I would like to thank BUV for the opportunity to support the development of our talented staff. BUV has created most of our junior managers, equipping them with practical knowledge and business administration skills which can be applied in their job to develop more efficient ways of working, improve communication skills and enhance their perspectives by exchanging with other classmates. I believe that investing in education is the best way for each individual to stand firmly and sustainably during unstable periods of the labour market and of the world.”
Mr. Alain added: “The MBA course is a chance to challenge yourself, it proves that with both your heart and your head, you can manage your time for work, family, and personal development goals.”
With comprehensive development of students in mind, BUV’s MBA programme was designed accordingly to international standards and taught entirely in English by experienced and passionate multinational lecturers. As a result, graduates can further improve their expertise, use English with confidence in their current job, as well as acquire other relevant soft skills such as high adaptability to changes and pressure, strengthening their competitive advantage and job stability even in uncertain times such as COVID-19.
