RMIT Vietnam wins 19th consecutive Golden Dragon Award

RMIT Vietnam has been named “Reliable Education Services” at this year’s Golden Dragon Awards Ceremony organised by Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Da Nang People’s Committee and Vietnam Economic Times. 

Launched in 2001, the Golden Dragon Awards (GDA) have been the largest awards program organised by the Vietnam Economics Times Group. This year’s Golden Dragon Awards honoured the top 50 foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) in Vietnam in 2021 and 2022 for their effective operations, innovation, and efforts in digital transformation, green growth, and sustainable development.

2023 marks 19 consecutive times RMIT Vietnam being recognised at the award.

According to RMIT Vietnam Pro Vice-Chancellor and General Director Professor Claire Macken, the award will further cement the University’s strong reputation in the country for more than two decades. 

“As the first, largest and leading international university, we have helped to lift the quality of education and the expectation of high-quality education in Vietnam,” Professor Macken said.

“We have done that by setting an example through our own learning and teaching, as well as constantly sharing our knowledge.

“Today, RMIT is proud to be a trusted part of Vietnam’s society, creating benefit for people of all backgrounds, government, and industry. As Vietnam has changed and developed, RMIT has remained responsive to the emerging needs of the country and Southeast Asia more broadly.”

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Australia and Vietnam, and since being awarded the investment license in 2000, RMIT Vietnam has been placed in a unique position to help both countries work towards mutually beneficial goals.

The history of RMIT Vietnam reflects the close relationship between Vietnam and Australia. RMIT’s entry was facilitated by strong bonds formed through many years of educating Vietnamese students in Australia and fostering educational partnerships in the region. Over more than two decades, RMIT Vietnam has become a vibrant part of Vietnam’s education landscape, industry ecosystems and broader communities, as well as an integral part of the Australia-Vietnam relationship. 

“Moving forward, RMIT Vietnam will expand its presence and impact through the implementation of its 2022-2031 strategic direction – Knowledge with Action with an aspiration to address shared challenges and opportunities in Vietnam and beyond,” Professor Macken said.
