VinUniversity is a newly developed, private, non-profit university in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was established by Vingroup with a mission to be the first world-class, internationally accredited and recognized university in Vietnam. VinUniversity has two overarching goals: to excel in teaching and to produce graduates and research that contribute to developing the key economic sectors of Vietnam.
The formation of the VinUniversity Project has resulted from the collaboration of Vingroup with Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania. Cornell provides academic consulting on Management, Engineering, and Technology; and Penn focuses on the Health Sciences disciplines.
Cornell is involved in every aspect of the development of VinUniversity from infrastructure and campus planning to curriculum development and faculty hiring. Cornell’s SC Johnson College of Business is providing extensive academic advisement in a variety of areas, drawing from a wealth of faculty expertise at multiple colleges and units at Cornell University. Penn’s medical and nursing schools are functioning in a similar fashion to guide the formation of health science education at VinUniversity and to interface with Vinmec, Vingroup’s outstanding health system, which currently encompasses 7 hospitals throughout Vietnam. VinUniversity will include the following colleges within the University: a College of Business and Management (including Hospitality and Real Estate); a College of Engineering and Computer Science; and a College of Health Sciences. The University will be an English Medium Instruction (EMI) institution and plans to open for the inaugural class of students in Fall 2020.
COLLEGE OF BUSINESS & MANAGEMENT
Through excellence in academics, research and innovation, the College of Business and Management (CBM) aims to nurture and develop competent business professionals, leaders, and entrepreneurs with integrity who are critical thinkers and aspire to move Vietnam to a respectful position in the world.
For the first academic year 2020-2021, the College will offer three-degree programs: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management, and Bachelor of Science in Real Estate.
With a vision to become a research-focused college, the College of Business and Management will also offer graduate programs in the near future and will provide the best possible research environment for our faculty members to conduct high-quality research that is also impactful and relevant to business organizations. Moreover, with the advantage of being part of the ecosystem of Vingroup, with a number of technology and business companies, such as Vinpearl, Vinhomes, Vinmart/Vinmar+, VinFast, VinTech, and Vincom Retail, some faculty of the College may choose to work closely with these companies to create breakthrough technology & business products and solutions and / or use their assistance in teaching and research activities.
The College of Business and Management at VinUniversity is recruiting multiple entrepreneurial-minded and innovative faculty members at all ranks and in all major fields of Business Management including, but not limited to:
Finance and Accounting
The College of Business and Management faculty members will be responsible for teaching, research, and service. The workload allocation will be based on faculty ranking and faculty track in alignment with generally accepted international standards and practices at universities accredited by AACSB.
