Over the past time, UEH University has built and implemented training in the public sector with areas of strength listed as Senior Executive Master in Public Policy, Senior Executive Master in Public Management, Master in Urban Management, etc. In addition, with its capacity, UEH can build short-term training programs to update knowledge for leaders and managers of the city as well as localities and regions as the program focuses on improving capacity-building strategies for sustainable development; improving the capacity of implementing cooperative management, mobilizing social resources; leadership capacity for driving socio-economic innovation in the digital age; or deep knowledge of international law supporting the executive activities of senior ministries in the public sector in the context of deeper international integration, etc. Prof. Dr. Su Dinh Thanh – President of UEH shared: “UEH has an abundant force of professors and doctors, who graduated from many internationally prestigious universities, with a deep understanding of the public sector in Vietnam, and performed many projects and research on theories related to public management and economic development policies at the central and local levels.

However, the current situation of public sector officials in Ho Chi Minh City is facing a big problem that is attracting and maintaining high-quality human resources in the public sector. This has existed for many years and I am personally very concerned about how to have a competent, high-quality, specialized, multi-disciplinary, and multi-field knowledgeable staff to lead. The University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City has actively proposed to the City Party Committee and the City People’s Committee in supporting the training of high-quality human resources in the public sector. Therefore, being present at the signing ceremony today, I feel very happy and do hope that right after the ceremony, the units will immediately start implementing the signing work.”
