New Agreement Expands Niagara University’s Educational Outreach In Vietnam
A new three-way international partnership commissions Niagara University faculty to develop hospitality training curricula for students in Vietnam and other Asian countries.
The Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., president of Niagara University, signed an articulation agreement June 15 with Dr. Bui Anh Tuan, president of Foreign Trade University, one of Vietnam’s premier academic institutions, and Huynh Trung Nam, chairman of the Imperial Group, the corporation that oversees the five-star Imperial Hotel in Vung Tau.
Working in conjunction with FTU and the Imperial Group, Niagara University faculty members will design academic and experiential coursework intended to prepare graduates for careers in Vietnam’s booming hospitality and tourism industry.
“We are eager to further deploy the excellence of our faculty to bring professional training to the growing hospitality and tourism industry of Vietnam,” said Father Maher. “At the same time, deepening our relationships with Foreign Trade University and the Imperial Group expands the international presence of Niagara University and provides unique opportunities for students from both countries.”
