University – Industry workplace competency training partnership in Việt Nam

RoD JEnsEn, Cao Minh Trí

Tóm tắt

There has been a growing presumption, expressed in Vietnam's business media, that recently hired local university graduates do not possess all of the workplace competencies required of new employees. These new hires may enter the workforce with excellent computational skills and with a broad-based education augmented with industry-based knowledge--but yet lack some level of workplace competency. In an article written in the business section of Thanh Nien Daily, entitled Education Fails The Nation, the author states that universities are "not producing the educated workforce that the nation's economy and society need". Employers have a natural expectation that new hires should be able to be able to fulfill their position responsibilities from the first day on the job. Universities have in turn invested years of time and talent in the education of their graduates and also expect that their recent graduates are prepared to contribute to the social and economic well-being of the country. Since universities and employers have mutual work-place expectations for recent graduates, it is in their shared interest to develop a competency-based training partnership.
