       The Master’s programs in Economics were officially established in 2015. The programs have received significant attention from society over the past six years. The workshop was held with the aim of collecting feedback from experts to adjust and improve both the research-oriented and application-oriented Master’s programs in Economics. The research-oriented program aims to equip learners with in-depth theoretical knowledge and scientific methodology to conduct research on economic issues (at the micro- and macro-level). Meanwhile, the application-oriented program allows learners to apply both theoretical and practical knowledge to serve the purpose of local economic development, respond appropriately to international trends, and flexibly use information technology comprehensively in all aspects.

       Delegates went on discussions of the new Master’s programs content after the report of Assoc.Prof.Dr. Quan Minh Nhut. Experts recommended skills and modules that should be added to the programs to satisfy the needs of business and community. Meanwhile, the workshop was also an opportunity for former students to express their own experiences after enrollment in the programs.

       In addition to the above contributions, many valuable comments and sharing from experts, employers, and alumni were recorded. The team in charge has summarized the achievements and limitations that need to be overcome to adjust and improve the Master’s programs in Economics comprehensively, oriented towards research and application based on the development objectives of the Mekong River Delta in particular and the country in general.

       The workshop was closed successfully at 16:00 on the same day.
