Patricia Voaden and Ray Priest represented the Bristol Business School at the UWE Graduation held at National Economics University (NEU) on August 8th. NEU is one of the leading universities in Economics, Public Management and Business Administration in Vietnam and is one of UWE Bristol’s partnership Universities.

 It is a prestigious centre for economic research and a consulting centre for economics and management.

51 students graduated from the BA Business Management and BA Banking and Finance degree programmes. Their success was celebrated in style with beautiful flower arrangements adorning the hall and hundreds of parents and staff in attendance.

This was the ninth cohort to graduate with UWE degrees at NEU and, as always, the results achieved by students were outstanding.

The new Vice President of NEUpraised the support his staff received from UWE colleagues and said that he was determined to expand provision by 2020 as part of their strategic plan.

He commented that the values of both institutions in preparing students to be confident, articulate and caring graduates was what made our partnership so enduring and asked for his congratulations to the whole of the Bristol Business School to be shared.

One student,Vu Thuy Duong, who received a First Class Honours Degree in Banking and Finance, received a special £3000 scholarship for her postgraduate studies at UWE. She received a letter from Donna Whitehead praising her for her achievements and this was read to all present. On receiving the award, Thuy said that:

                  “she promised not to let down all the staff at UWE who had such faith in her”

Congratulations to all who graduated. More information on our partnership with NEU and other institutions globally can be found here.
