Signed on 1 October, the agreement enables future partnerships in a number of key sectors of growth for Vietnam, including RMIT’s ability to deliver the training and development needs of the FLC Group across governance, strategic management, finance, real estate, engineering, languages and aviation.

FLC Group Deputy General Director Madam Nguyen Nhu Anh said the partnership with a highly ranked, reputable university such as RMIT will enhance its position both locally and globally.

“As a multi-line and multi-sector group with a strong trademark in Vietnam, the partnership with RMIT will help us develop our people to make us more competitive locally and for international markets,” she said.

RMIT Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Global, Professor Peter Coloe was pleased with the agreement and looks forward to exploring the many areas of potential collaboration the partnership will offer.    

“There are many commonalities between FLC Group’s key areas of business and where our strengths are at RMIT, and we look forward to providing a range of workshops and training programs to best meet their needs,” Professor Coloe said.

RMIT has broad local and international expertise with aviation programs, training pilots, instructors, and safety personnel as well as implementing Aviation English training, making RMIT Australia’s largest aviation training school.

Professor Coloe also reflected on the new opportunities the partnership offers RMIT and its students in Vietnam.

“We have more than 6,500 students at RMIT Vietnam, and more than 13,500 alumni. Our graduates are highly sought after for their quality education, their global mindset and experience, and their strong industry connections and partnerships.

“It truly highlights RMIT’s strong industry connections and give students tremendous opportunities to intern at one of the biggest names in the industry.”

The MoU comes into effect from 1 October 2019 and the two organisations will develop a detailed proposal together for implementation.
