FPT Education (FPT Edu) and FPT University are the only two educational units in Vietnam to receive the Brand Influencer Award 2018-2019 by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation for education and training.
The influential brand award in the field of education was reviewed by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation based on the criteria and scale of influence including the criteria of popularity, level of prestige, quality of training, as well as the positive impact on the education sector of the brand.
Previously, in November 2018, at the Brandlaureate International Awards 2018 in Vietnam, FPT Education has received “Excellence in Education” and “Best Brands in Education Tertiary” award by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation. It is known that FPT Education is the first educational institution in Vietnam awarded by the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation at the Brandlaureate International Awards 2018.
After 10 years, FPT University – the first university in Vietnam established by an enterprise – has reached the next level to become FPT Education Group in 2016 with new strategy and vision to become network Education Group which targeted 150.000 students by 2025. The curricula with practical-oriented design have helped narrow the gap between education and industry demand.
