This is why our delegation, which includes 35 professors, recently visited Ho Chi Minh City. We want Vietnamese students to learn more about India and about FORE and we want to learn more about Vietnam, to learn from Vietnamese professionals more about the local business scenario and situation. To further this process, we have signed an MOU with the local university. To encourage and invite Vietnamese students to undertake MBA programs at FORE, we plan to offer five scholarships worth more than 90,000 USD. We hope to carry out training programs here and strengthen our cooperation with Vietnam as a significant contribution to capacity building, which is an important pillar of bilateral co-operation between India and Vietnam”. When asked as to how would FORE attract students of Vietnam, Dr. Das responded, “One very important factor is the high quality education and training at FORE costs much lower than schools in more developed countries. We have a wide network of prestigious partner institutions to make the education we offer our students truly international. For example, our affiliations include the Rennes School of Business and Savannah State University, USA. Hence the latest international trends and developments are delivered in the wide range of Post Graduate Courses in management to meet the needs of students and the industry, including a full-time PhD program”.
