Although study overseas trend continues to grow in Vietnam, a foreign degree has been no longer the magic key for work opportunities as in the past, especially in saturated sectors such as banking and finance, when there has been still a lack of high quality man power in other areas, which urges the need for more specific and practical programs to be designed along with work orientation activities to be delivered to the students and young officers who are going beyond country border to study.
In term of the demand for good quality human resources of the local companies, particularly in softer and emerging areas such as FMCG; Marketing & Branding; Media & Communications; Retail; Services, etc . It is beneficial for the firms to have well career oriented and skillful, well-trained students to become their future staffs. On the other hand, with clearer industries and jobs insight, the students would know better about where, what and how to invest their money on studying (abroad), and accordingly to better prepare for their personal competitive advantages for next career steps.
As a prestigious academic institution in UK, with several top-ranked teaching and research areas, BU expects to connect with Vietnamese companies and professionals and experts to join in a co-operation project, to supply the audiences with both career orientation and academic orientation, which would support them to smarter tailor a pathway of higher education and work as briefly mentioned above, under the name of“INSIDEjobs”
