UH-M Vietnam Executive MBA

The University of Hawaii, Shidler College of Business has partnered with the International University (Ho Chi Minh City) and the Foreign Trade University (Hanoi) to deliver its first-rate Vietnam Executive MBA program that will train, guide, and prepare Vietnam’s top executives who want to elevate their management skills. This 21-month, executive format program allows participants living in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to maintain full-time management positions while earning their degree. Students will learn from an integrated, modern curriculum that incorporates core business disciplines with cutting-edge business practices including: management of information technologies, entrepreneurship, e-business and Asia-Pacific global business strategy. All classes will be held in Vietnam, with an optional summer study at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

Engaging with Viet Nam Conference

The Engaging with Vietnam conference was founded in 2009 by Dr Phan Le Ha who was at that time lecturing in the Faculty of Education at Monash University, Australia. The Initiative received strong support from the University, particularly from Professor Stephanie Fahey, the then Deputy Vice Chancellor (Global Engagement). This Initiative has brought together scholars, researchers, policy makers, diplomatic officials and the general public to collaboratively engage with knowledge production and scholarship building related to Vietnam. Annual scholarly conferences are a major part of the Initiative. In 2015, the 7th annual conference will be held in Hanoi, Viet Nam from July 7 – 8 in conjunction with the first Vietnam-U.S. Higher Education Forum.

Phan Le Ha is now a Professor of Education at the College of Education, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM), USA, and UH-M has become the new home for Engaging with Vietnam.

Vietnamese Digital Humanities

CSEAS affiliated faculty member Liam Kelley of the History Department has just launched Viet Texts at, a web page that contains translations of the following three important sources for early Vietnamese history:

— The Outer Annals (Ngoại kỷ) of the Complete Book of the Historical Records of Đại Việt (Đại Việt sử ký toàn thư)

— The Prefatory Compilation (Tiền biên) of the Imperially Commissioned Itemized Summaries of the Comprehensive Mirror of Việt History (Khâm định Việt sử thông giám cương mục)

— The Arrayed Tales of Selected Oddities from South of the Passes (Lính Nam chích quái liệt truyện)

The translation of the first two texts above was made possible through the generous support of a translation grant from the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Grants to Individuals in East and Southeast Asian Archaeology and Early History. The input of the Chinese text for those two sources was supported by a National Resource Center Grant from the U.S. Department of Education to the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.
