Thanks to a recent partnership with Acumatica Singapore, RMIT Vietnam students will now have even more exposure to real-life business technologies. 

Students will benefit from practical use of Acumatica’s Cloud ERP, or enterprise resource planning software, which is currently being used in 30 countries worldwide.

RMIT Vietnam Head of Centre of Commerce and Management Professor Raymond Gordon confirmed his commitment to developing graduates who will be Vietnam’s future business leaders.

“RMIT Vietnam is focused on grooming highly employable graduates who have practical industry skills and the ability to think critically and creatively,” Professor Gordon said.

“We collaborate with the most progressive international companies today to groom the brightest young talents in Vietnam who can help businesses to leverage technology for long-term growth.”

The two organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining the approach towards developing a non-exclusive academic and research cooperation relationship in a number of areas.

The collaboration will bring about knowledge-sharing between Acumatica’s technology experts and RMIT Vietnam lecturers and researchers.

It will also increase student exposure to real-life business technology through the development of lectures, seminars, conferences, courses and academic materials.

Acumatica President of International Operations Mr Laurent Dedenis said cloud applications will benefit all users, but especially students.

“Whether in government organisations, homes or heavy industries, users today are deploying cloud-based applications to work and to improve their lives,” Mr Dedenis said.

“In tomorrow’s fast-paced and dynamic environments, organisations of all sizes will need to embrace cloud for users to work anywhere, any time and on any device.”

“We believe that this will create demand for the next-generation of IT, finance and business management talents – a group of specialists who operate at the intersection of business and technology,” Mr Dedenis added.

Expected to span five years, this collaboration will be managed jointly by RMIT Vietnam’s Centre of Commerce and Management and Acumatica.

About 3,000 commerce, business and information technology undergraduate students stand to benefit from this collaboration.
