I am in the final steps of completing my Bachelor study in Computer Science (CSE) at VGU. Thanks to CSE, I have also experienced international education and cooperation via an exchange semester at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. I consider VGU as one of the best higher education institutions in Vietnam. VGU features a strong academic team, who are very helpful and supportive. Student clubs and study groups have facilitated our academic as well as social life at VGU greatly. I have decided to join the GFE program to study state-of-the-art methods in Finance and Economics, as well as the application of the latest modern technologies into economic and financial markets. CSE-GFE is a perfect combination for me to become an expert on quantitative finance and economic analysis so that I can join hands with the young generations to deal with probing challenges facing our world and the development of our country.
