Now in its fifth year, the partnership of California State University, San Bernardino with National Economics University in Hanoi, Vietnam, has enabled three cohorts of students to transfer to CSUSB to complete their bachelor’s degrees in administration at CSUSB.

Two more cohorts are still studying to complete the first two years of courses at NEU before transferring to CSUSB for the final two years to complete their degree requirements in what is called the 2+2 upper division program.

During their first two years at NEU, students complete part of their coursework for the degree and also take English language and academic preparation courses under the supervision of CSUSB’s resident director. After completing the last two years at CSUSB, students earn a bachelor’s degree in administration with a concentration in finance.

CSUSB hosted a delegation from NEU on May 15. During the visit, headed by Vice President Tran Thi Van Hoa, an agreement was signed by CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales extending the 2+2 Cooperative Agreement five more years.

The eight-member delegation also met with their academic counterparts at CSUSB to discuss a variety of possible future joint ventures, including online courses, faculty exchange, and a study abroad program for CSUSB students. The visit included a tour of the campus and a meeting with 2+2 students currently studying at CSUSB.

The NEU delegates’ visit culminates a busy academic year of exchange visits. Tatiana Karmanova, dean of CSUSB’s College of Extended Learning, and Lawrence C. Rose, dean of the Jack Brown College of Business and Public Administration, attended the 10th Anniversary of Advanced Education Programs at NEU in September 2016, followed by the 60th Anniversary Celebrations of the founding of NEU in November 2016, attended by Morales and Karmanova.

As one of the leading universities in economics, public management, and business administration in Vietnam, NEU partners with government, non-governmental organizations, and reputed research institutes and universities all around the world, and counts as its alumni a number of government ministers and CEOs of domestic and multinational companies.
