International University (IU), one of six member universities of Vietnam National University HCMC, was established in December 2003. As an interdisciplinary university, it is the first public university in Vietnam that uses English as the primary language in teaching and researching.

IU and its partner universities currently offer undergraduate and graduate accredited programs. The focus has been on offering academic majors that are aligned with the growing demand for human resources in such fields as economics, management, science, and technology. IU’s overall model adheres to the international standards in developing syllabi or curricula in collaboration with several top universities in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

IU’s mission is to be recognized as one of the top research-oriented universities in Vietnam and in Asia. We will reach this goal by carefully selecting staff and foreign faculty that are well qualified in order to meet the changing needs of the society and the country’s development.
