Experience the Vibrant Exchange of Cultures: VinUniversity welcomes HKUST Students and Staff

August 3, 2023

In light of the successful outcomes of previous international exchange programs, this summer, VinUniversity is once again extending a warm welcome to a distinguished delegation of students from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology | HKUST (#40 QS Ranking, 2023).

The students from the HKUST delegation, specializing in various fields such as Business, Science, Engineering, and more, exuded enthusiasm and raised their expectations for this trip. Not only will it serve as a valuable learning experience, providing them with insights into Vietnam’s economic development, advancements in science and technology, and the education landscape, but it also presents a unique opportunity to foster cultural diversity and delve into unexplored facets of Vietnamese culture that were previously unfamiliar to them.

From July 29 to August 27, VinUni embarked on a month-long journey alongside HKUST, offering an array of exceptional learning experiences that unfold within our campus. Complementing this academic enrichment are hands-on and immersive encounters during their exploration of Hanoi, the storied thousand-year-old capital.

Particularly noteworthy, from the esteemed faculty of VinUniversity, Dr. Anupama Devendrakumar, Senior Lecturer of Global Political Economy at the College of Arts and Sciences, along with the students, will embark on a comprehensive expedition, delving into numerous facets of Vietnamese culture, society, and economy through the exploration of the following topics:

  • Introduction to political economy and the actors;
  • Globalization – benefits, risks, and challenges; global digital economy;
  • Vietnam’s political-economic transformation and its positioning at the regional and global level;
  • ASEAN’s origin, achievements, and challenges;
  • Selected critical and urgent global political-economic issues.

VinUni is confident that the partnership between VinUniversity (Vietnam) and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) will thrive in multiple areas, including cultural exchange and student as well as faculty exchanges. We expect a higher number of HKUST students to come to Vietnam, seeking opportunities to fully experience the local environment, pursue academic studies, and even explore professional opportunities. Likewise, VinUni students will choose HKUST as their top destination for exchange programs during their semesters abroad.
