In this program, NEUH students will take their first two years of study at NEUH before transferring to CSULB to complete their degrees in CBA.

NEHU’s 60th Anniversary Celebration

NEUH celebrated its 60th anniversary (1956 - 2016) with an excellent and well-attended ceremony that featured many prominent government and education figures. At this ceremony, NEUH received the First-class Labour Order from the Vietnamese government for the second time. This marked a milestone in the path of development for the university and was recognition of NEU’s superb achievements in providing talented and high qualified graduates to the Vietnamese economy.

It was our pleasure to welcome you to visit the National Economics University on that special event.  We do hope that you were satisfied with our reception those days.

For the past decade, CBA has worked with NEUH on Advanced Programs in Finance and Accounting. At the 60th Anniversary Celebration Professor Dr. Tran Tho Dat, President of NEUH, said, “On behalf of the National Economics University, I would like to extend a sincere thank for taking time to attend the NEU 60th anniversary ceremony‚Ķ. I would like to express our appreciation for your support and collaboration over the past years. We strongly believe that our partnership will reach fruitful results in the coming years.”
