Taking about the decision to choose partner being a public university in Vietnam, Ms. Nguyet Anh - Senior expert of IFC said: "VNU University of Economics and Business is a research-oriented university which hosts many strong research teams, especially in the field of banking and finance. The University has also involved in many consulting projects and research in the field of banking and finance as well as successfully implemented the project "Enhancing capacity of corporate governance for banking leaders in Vietnam" sponsored by the World Bank. These were the decisive factors for IFC to choose the UEB as partner to sign the cooperation agreement." Within the framework of the cooperation agreement, after the course, two other short-term training courses for banking leaders and one international conference on corporate governance in banks will be held in 2016.
