Acumen, part of Sannam S4 Group, are delighted to be able to offer you a unique and exclusive opportunity for any senior international education professionals to engage with us to help better understand Vietnam as a marketplace and the potential that it has to offer those looking to expand their global footprint.

The goal of the Vietnam Rising Leaders Programme is to offer help and support to senior decision-makers in determining how Vietnam fits in their international strategy as well as enabling strategic engagement with key local stakeholders, such as Vietnamese universities, K-12 schools, private education holdings, as well as industry.

Why Vietnam?

Vietnam alone accounts for more than 45% of all enrolments to the US from Southeast Asia. The country is also ranked in the top 6 student marketplaces globally for Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand. It’s an emerging market with huge potential. Parents and students throughout Vietnam are showing immense interest in studying abroad.

The 3-day/3-night programme will run from 7-10 March 2023 and will be centered on Vietnam’s commercial capital of Ho Chi Minh City. The programme is open to a maximum of 10 institutions. Places will be allocated on the programme on a first come first serve basis.
