Faculty of International Business and Economics


Faculty of International Business and Economics (FIBE) under the VNU University of Economics and Business (UEB) is formerly known as World Economics Department, founded in November 1974 under Faculty of Political Economics - University of Hanoi. In 2007, with the establishment of the University of Economics and Business (formerly the Faculty of Economics) the FIBE was concurrently established, marking the turning point which was towards the strong development phase. Based on active enthusiasm and the innovation, the faculty has gradually proved as an important element of the UEB by their quality training activity and extracurricular activities and career orientation for students. In just a short period, the faculty has set up cooperation with many businesses, investors and foreign universities, bringing the favorable academic environment. The faculty also held many workshops, meetings and talks with renowned speakers as well as built annual events and activities to improve the quality of teaching, learning and research. In 2010, the faculty has proposed to change the official name to Faculty of International Business and Economics to better match with the orientation of research and training approaching world-class quality.

The Faculty of International Business and Economics was chosen to first implement the high quality program as well as apply the CDIO standard in building the training program - one of key development orientation of the Vietnam National University, Hanoi and the University of Economics and Business. This created a great chance for the Faculty to achieve the goal of enhancing training quality towards international and regional standard. To date, the Faculty has successfully implemented the high quality training program of Bachelor of International Economics (since 2004). The Faculty was also the first faculty of the UEB had the undergraduate high quality training program accredited by the Asian University Network (AUN).

Many students of the faculty graduated with excellent grade and performed well in their job, partly proving the high quality training that the faculty and the university always strive for.

For nearly 40 years of construction and development, the faculty has achieved remarkable achievements and repeatedly awarded honorable titles and merit of certificates by VNU President and UEB Rector.
