Despite the negative impact of the COVID pandemic, Vietnam is one of the few countries to be able to sustain economic growth and development in the 2020-2021 period. The university education system, which is energetic and competitive, plays an important role in building Vietnam economy’s enduring resilience, resulting in fast-growing demand for skilled and educated workers.
This collaboration will allow UEF to benefit from the expertise of member universities in the alliance, such as Almaty Management University, American University Kyiv, Istanbul Bilgi University, Autonoma de Guadalajara University, Latina de Costa Rica University, Internacional del Ecuador University, and NorthCap University

Becoming a member of Cintana Alliance is expected to make a great leap for UEFers in the international integration

Cintana Alliance was founded by Cintana Education in partnership with Arizona State University (ASU). Members in the alliance have direct access to the resources and expertise of ASU, including academic curricula, the digital repository of content and curriculum as well as in-depth knowledge of conducting world-class research. Cintana will support UEF in terms of strategic planning, cutting-edge technology, and offering opportunities to collaborate with ASU academic counterparts through experienced experts from cross-border universities.
Consequently, UEF’s international education strategy will continue to bring students stronger values and equip them with the necessary skills to thrive in today’s increasingly competitive global market.
