However, Dr. Le Mai Lan (Chair of the University Council, Vice Chair of Vingroup) asserted, "We will stand on the shoulders of giants, collaborating with top-ranked universities worldwide. With the support of Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania, both of which are among the top 20 universities globally, we will establish VinUni."
