It can be stated that Batch 45 is one of the generations of students who witnessed the change of the University. They are the source of motivation; moreover, thanks to their contributions, UEH continuously affirms its position domestically and internationally. It can be the success in raising the international level of UEH University’s training, research, operation, administration, and connection activities; a complete, professional and quality improvement of the activities of taking care and supporting learners in the past time. It is an effort to adapt to the online learning and exam system during the Covid-19 pandemic and the foundation for UEH to carry out comprehensive digital transformation, serving the needs of lifelong learning conveniently, anytime, anywhere. That is the support and understanding when UEH transforms with the strategy of a Multidisciplinary and Sustainable University with a reputation in Asia 2021-2030. What is mkore important, it is certainly the certificates with good achievements of 2,839 UEH new graduates that day, this is the best and most meaningful contribution.

Being a leading University in Vietnam is the most worthy recognition for UEHer’s ‘persistent efforts’ over the past 48 years, of which Batch 45 is one of the indispensable parts.

Congratulating the new graduates, Prof. Dr. Nguyen Dong Phong – Chairman of the University Council – shared: “After 48 years of construction and development, it can be affirmed that UEH has been performing excellently and comprehensively the task of training high-quality human resources, serving and dedicating to the economic development of the country.

Graduation Ceremony for New Graduates of UEH

Sharing her feelings about university life, new graduate Le Thi Thao Nguyen – School of International Business – Marketing affirmed: “Living under the roof of UEH is full of enthusiasm – friendliness – love has given us opportunities to try, to dream, to step out of our comfort zone and do what we want: to study, play, volunteer and burn with our youth. I will always strive to spread positive values and hope to return to UEH to connect and develop future generations, as our acknowledgment to the lecturers. At present, putting my hand on my chest, wherever I go, I will loudly shout: Proud to be a UEH student!”

“At the end of 4 years, what we all want to say right now is the deepest thanks to the lecturers who accompany us not only in the knowledge at lecture halls but also in sharing valuable life experiences, leading us on the journey of self-improvement. We also want to send our thanks to all officers, employees and experts who provide us with not only studying but also useful movement activities to be ourselves at UEH” – New graduate Le Thi My Hoai, majoring in Hotel Management.

Advising the new graduates on the journey ahead, Dr. Bui Quang Hung – Vice President of UEH emphasized: “Persevering efforts”, “Mastering technology, thinking globally, acting locally” and Gratitude” are the “sustainable” formulas to achieve success. UEHer is steady on every journey and every situation in life.

Persistent effort is an accurate word to describe the 48-year journey of UEH and it can be said that it is the DNA (genetic code) of each UEHer. Today you graduate, there are many other paths that you will take, but I believe that UEH DNA has been and will follow you in every journey and every challenge. Persistent efforts are the motivation for you to constantly learn, take learning as a priority, and assert yourself in any situation.

Besides, Mastering technology, thinking globally, acting locally” is the second keywords I want to talk about. Era 5.0 will take place and the timeline is very close. Unlike 4.0, human resources of the 5.0 era require the ability to “understand, know and master technology”, the goal of all technological innovations is to serve the quality of people’s lives. I believe that the multi-disciplinary, technology-integrated knowledge that you have learned at UEH will help you flexibly solve problems in your work and your life. Above all, you are key human resources capable of seizing the opportunities of a 5.0 society. I am proud that this will be a competitive advantage of a UEHer in the domestic and foreign labor market.

Finally, I believe that “gratitude” is an important piece to create an excellent and profound UEHer. “Excellent” in work, “deep and human” in the journey ahead.

The graduation ceremony marks the official milestone of ending undergraduate studies and opening a new path with many future ambitions and aspirations. And the roof of UEH will always accompany their learning, UEH Alumni will always be a place for them to find – to connect with many other doors and opportunities through a network of more than 250,000 successful alumni and contribute to the development of the country.
