A delegation from one of the United States' leading business schools arrives in Hanoi today for a visit to RMIT International University Vietnam.
The delegation, from the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business, includes two professors and 36 undergraduate students.
Amongst other activities, the group will attend a presentation by the General Director of Cisco Systems Vietnam, Mr. James Chia.
They will later visit the Temple of Literature in tribute to one of the world's oldest known institutions of learning.
In 2008 the UK's Financial Times ranked Marshall's MBA program in International Business in the top ten in the US. The Times Higher Education supplement ranked University of Southern California one of the top schools worldwide the same year.
Marshall Business School's executive and part-time MBA programs are also consistently ranked among the top MBA programs by media including U.S. News & World Report, Business Week, and the Wall Street Journal.
Each year Marshall sends students overseas on field trips to learn about international business issues. This is the second such trip to Vietnam, recognising the dynamic growth and development occurring in this country.
"We're delighted to host this visit from these American academics and their students," RMIT Vietnam's Hanoi campus head Dr Pierre Dietrichsen said today.
"Our own MBA programs in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City continue to attract interest from around the region and further afield, and we're always pleased to give our students and staff the benefit of receiving such distinguished visitors."
