Georgian signs MOU in Vietnam to advance internationalization and innovative global partnerships
March 24, 2023
Georgian recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Khoi Nguyen Investment Group (KNI) in Vietnam agreeing to open new possibilities in an innovative global partnership.
KNI continues the Canadian education legacy of its predecessor company Khoi Nguyen Education Group (KNE), which has a rich history of developing top quality education projects across Vietnam including The Canadian International School Vietnam (CIS), in Ho Chi Minh City, and the first and only accredited Alberta Offshore School in Vietnam situated in Lao Cai City of Vietnam. KNI’s newest project has been working to collaborate with partners to bring various levels of Canadian college programming to Vietnam.
Georgian’s strategy for an internationalized Georgian community is also centred around enhancing cultural awareness internally and externally, support for greater international exchange, study abroad opportunities, and in-country partnerships to enhance its presence and capacity.
KNI holds education and social innovation at the centre of their projects and is determined to support the need for building capacity for employability outcomes while meeting regional specific community needs and resulting in positive social impact.
Both Georgian and KNI will co-operate on international education, specifically exploring opportunities to build capacity as they establish an international college in Vietnam, with the objective of aligning a high-quality vocational college programming with flexibility of studying locally and internationally.
During rich preliminary discussions, KNI and Georgian explored a variety of specialized programs suitable to the ever-changing labor needs of Vietnam with a focus on industry ready graduates and social impact in support of the regional community needs.
Georgian and KNI will continue to review opportunities and areas of potential co-operation including program areas of interest, curriculum alignment, equipment and infrastructure as it pertains to KNI’s plans to build a state-of-the-art campus.
Georgian, with its robust international student population representing 83 countries speaking more than 35 languages, is committed to expanding diverse markets through offering market specific programs, innovative partnerships, and expanding mobility for staff and students.
