Talking about the reason to come to FPT University, Asst. Prof Kenji M. Asano Jr., Dean of College of Business Administration and Accountancy, CSJL said: “We want to take our students to visit FPT University because we want to show them one of the leading corporations in Vietnam, especially in terms of data analytics. The presentations today give us information on curriculum of FPTU and basic knowledge of programming languages, which are very helpful for our students. We expect to partner with FPT in the future to cooperate in the On-the-Job Training Program (OJT), and even employment in the field of technology for Letran University’s students.

At the seminar, Dean of FPT Education Global, Cuong Hoang emphasized on the core criteria of FPT Education, which are Industry-Oriented Education, Global Connection and Personal Development. Students coming to FPT Education will have chance to experience international standard education from FPT University, University of Greenwich (UK) and Swinburne University of Technology (Australia).

The presentation on FPT software and Data Analytics attracted many students. In particular, the application of Data Analytics in industries such as tourism, hotels … received the most attention of CSJL professors and students.

Joanna Venise L.Herman (Bs in Tourism Management, CSJL) shared her impression when visiting FPT University: “At first, I was so impressed with the large campus of FPT University. Then I was much interested in the advanced technologies which FPT Corporation is working on. I think the knowledge we learn today will be very helpful for us in the future because analytics is a very important thing in the industry”

For me,  coming here is a pleasure as I know that FPT is one of the best universities in Vietnam. I care most about the presentation on Data Analytics because I think it will be helpful for my major as well as the business in the future.
