After becoming a part of the multidisciplinary UEH University, ISB has set goals to shape the future, as well as make a positive contribution to the development of UEH, including

*Improving the quality of multidisciplinary education

ISB is not only a place to impart knowledge according to the Multidisciplinary University model, but also a place to organize creative and intellectual activities. This creates diversity and multidimensionality in education not only limited to Business, but also expanded to Technology, Data Science and many other fields.

Thanks to this, students not only become experts in their field but also develop flexibility and creativity in their careers.

*Connecting theory and practice through multidisciplinary research projects

Students participating in projects will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have learned to solve contemporary challenges in society and business.

Not only that, ISB has become a place to create a multidisciplinary community – a place where people can learn and initiate, where new ideas are born and developed.

*Support and cooperation for future development

ISB not only equips students with knowledge and skills but also supports them in finding career opportunities. With strong relationships with leading multinational companies and corporations, ISB always creates opportunities to help students practice and understand the business world even while they are still in school.

ISB’s strong commitment to training and research not only follows the direction of UEH Multidisciplinary University but also is an important source of encouragement for student success. With continuous efforts, ISB will continue to contribute to the sustainable development of Vietnam in the new era.

On the journey of more than 47 years, UEH has created many milestones of achievements. Now, with a new position and stature – the Multidisciplinary and Sustainable University needs greater determination and effort from the UEHer team to carry out its mission of contributing to human knowledge and the country’s economy and society./.
