TMC Academy hosted a group of distinguished guests from Foreign Trade University (FTU), Hanoi, Vietnam – one of the most prestigious universities in Vietnam, last Friday. Our principal, John Lee, has enjoyed a long standing partnership with FTU and we are pleased to have this privilege extended to TMC Academy. A warm welcome to Associate Professor Bui Anh Tuan, President at Foreign Trade University, along with his team of delegates:
- Associate Prof Ho Thuy Ngoc- Dean of the International Education
- Dr Pham Thu Huong- Head of Undergraduate Department
- Dr Vu Thi Hien- Head of International Affairs
- Associate Prof Dao Ngoc Tien- Head of Human Resources Department
The meeting started with a presentation on TMC and our programmes by our representatives and lecturers, followed by a fruitful discussion on the following areas:
- Student Exchange Programmes – to provide Singapore as a destination for Vietnamese students
- Jointly development of academic programmes and entrepreneurship short courses, and
- Academic staff development between TMC and FTU
One of TMC Academy’s selling points as a private school in Singapore is having paid industrial attachments for our Hospitality and Business programmes. This is something FTU hopes their students can engage in and benefit from.
With both parties pleased with the outcome of the dialogue session, we proceeded with the official Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing.
Mr John Lee and Associate Professor Bui Anh Tuan also presented one another with thoughtful gifts, including a student-drawn portrait of Mr John Lee.
To round up the session, our guests were brought on a campus tour, including the Academics Office, Classrooms, Library, Hospitality Training Rooms, Mass Communication Studio and Student Lounge.
We certainly look forward to fostering close partnerships with FTU that will mutually benefit both institutions and make greater contributions to the education of our future generations.
