Project "Erasmus+ Building the capacity of higher educational institutions through cooperative project with enterprises" (2017-2020) aims to improve the quality of teaching and improve the effectiveness of learning of students, meeting the demands of the labor market during internationalization. The project helps strengthen the connection and cooperation between universities in Vietnam and major universities in Europe to learn practical experiences in establishing subjects and curricula to meet the needs of students’ demand in dynamic market conditions.

Being one of the two members of the project in Vietnam, University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City in general and the School of Banking under UEH in particular will receive funding from the project, and at the same time be responsible for the development of 05 case studies, developed from local businesses and related to the international advanced program of UEH to create a sustainable connection between businesses and universities.
