RMIT University Vietnam and Acumatica, the fastest-growing cloud ERP (enterprise resource planning) company in the world, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) yesterday to develop the next generation of graduates who will lead Vietnam’s future business and management needs.

“RMIT Vietnam is focused on grooming highly employable graduates who have practical industry skills and the ability to think critically and creatively,” said the Head of the Centre of Commerce and Management at RMIT Vietnam, Professor Raymond Gordon.

“We collaborate with the most progressive international companies today to groom the brightest young talent in Vietnam who can help businesses leverage technology for long-term growth,” he said.

This first collaboration between RMIT Vietnam and Acumatica will see knowledge-sharing between Acumatica’s technology experts and the University’s students, lecturers and researchers. Students will also benefit from hands-on use of Acumatica’s cloud ERP software, which is currently used by customers in 30 countries worldwide to manage their operations and drive profitability.

“We believe that this will create demand for the next generation of IT, finance, and business management talent - a group of specialists who operate at the intersection of business and technology,” said Mr. Laurent Dedenis, President of International Operations at Acumatica. “At Acumatica we hope to nurture these specialists through this unique collaboration with RMIT Vietnam.”

Both RMIT Vietnam and Acumatica will also work jointly on developing collaborative research and academic materials to increase students’ exposure to the technology needs in real-life business environments.

Expected to span five years, the collaboration will be managed jointly by RMIT Vietnam’s Centre of Commerce and Management and Acumatica. The University expects that close to 3,000 commerce, business, and IT undergraduates stand to benefit from the collaboration.
