VNU University of Economics and Business 17:06 21/04/2022

Issued together with Decision No. 2913/QD-DHKT dated October 30, 2018, of the Rector of VNU University of Economics and Business. 

Vietnam is increasingly integrating into the world economy and has gained some encouraging achievements. In the coming time, Vietnam's economy will continue to integrate deeply into the world economy. That requires a large number of high-quality human resources equipped with knowledge of international economics. Specifically, that context requires highly motivated and ambitious aspiring international economics, and international relations scholars who have excellent analytical, and critical thinking with professional expertise on how to produce such syntheses and critical assessments about the macroeconomic situation and who are willing to serve as future leaders in the state management agencies to issue appropriate and effective government policies at all levels. Training and research programs at universities and research institutes require scientists fully equipped with in-depth knowledge and advanced research methods to contribute high-quality research results for society.

The features of the Doctoral Program in International Economics of UEB in comparison with domestic academic institutions.

The Doctoral Program in International Economics is referenced from the program of Johns Hopkins University, USA which is the 13th-ranked university in the USA, and 16th in the world based on the ranking of America's most prestigious magazine USNews.
