Therefore, CDIO is highly feasible for the development of new academic programs and the improvement of the exisiting ones worldwide.

Through the analysis of the nature and features of the CDIO approach and its practical application at some universities worldwide, the University of Economics and Business - Vietnam National University, Hanoi applied the CIDO method in improving the bachelor program on international economics - honors. The program’s stakeholders are students, alumni, lecturers, businesses, and employers were questioned of the basic knowledge and skills that students should master and all subjects existing in the program. Thanks to the CDIO research project, outcome standards for the international economics programs (honors) were developed. Some other parts of the program were also adjusted in order to make sure graduate students master the knowledge, skills and qualities suitable to serve the society and work effectively in international working settings.

By studying the application of the CDIO approach in several international universities, the research team had come up with a specific and comprehensive table of outcome standards which have similartities to that of the universities in the Netherlands and European countries.
