Forty-six US universities and colleges took part in EducationUSA’s Business and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Programs Fair in Hanoi on October 11, hosted by the US Embassy in Vietnam.

Universities and colleges offering strong, accredited undergraduate and graduate programs in the Business and STEM fields participated in the annual event organized by EducationUSA. The fair brought together more than 800 students, parents and working people with representatives from the US universities, who provided accurate and up-to-date information on degree programs, career perspectives, scholarships, and financial aid for international students. A Consular Officer from the US Embassy was also in attendance, providing information on student visas and optional practical training programs for international students.

Opening the fair, Deputy Chief of Mission Caryn R. McClelland praised Vietnamese students in US colleges and universities, who “are among the best prepared and the most motivated” international students in US universities. She also said that it could not be a better time to be studying in the Business or STEM fields. The world is experiencing social, cultural, economic, environmental, and technological changes at a breathtaking pace.

The US remains one of the top destinations for Vietnamese students. According to the Open Doors Report issued by the International Institute of Education (IIE), the US welcomes nearly 28,000 Vietnamese students among more than 1 million international students on US campuses. Vietnam is sixth in place of origin for international students studying in the country.

EducationUSA is a US Department of State-supported network of over 425 advising centers in more than 175 countries. Its advisors provide Vietnamese students and parents with accurate, comprehensive, and current information about how to apply to accredited US colleges and universities. All services are free.
