  • The training scope of UFM has sharply increased in the past years, with nearly 20,000 students now taking part in the University’s various training programs ranging from 3-year, 4-year undergraduate to graduate studies. Most of UFM graduates whose qualifications are appreciated by the society have secured relevant and well-paid jobs.

The University’s scientific research and international cooperation have been well developed and effectively conducted and operated.

  • Research-doing is one of the most important tasks for UFM as it is a prerequisite for improving its training quality and increasing the quality of its teaching staff. During the past few years, UFM has taken a number of measures to enhance academic research and to build the developmental strategy for technological sciences. The University’s thematic research, scientific and academic works, textbook and other teaching material compiling have year by year increased not only in terms of quantity but also in terms of quality, demanding the needs of high quality in training by UFM. Research-doing by students has also become more active and fruitful. UFM’s students have in the past several years won various awards of academic research at national and municipal levels.

During the past few years, UFM has actively supported LPDR’s colleges and universities in training their human resources for the financial sector. UFM has also provided LPDR’s Southern College of Finance with such leading training programs as accounting, banking & finance for undergraduate students and a Master’s program in Business Administration for graduate students. UFM has also granted a number of undergraduate and graduate scholarships to Lao officials who are working for the Lao’s Ministry of Finance to study at UFM campus. Furthermore, UFM has greatly contributed to upgrading the LPDR’s Southern College of Finance to the present Champasac Institute of Finance and Economics under the cooperation program between Vietnam’s and Lao’s Ministry of Finance. All these cooperation programs between UFM and Lao’s Southern College of Finance have been successful and highly appreciated by Lao’s Ministry of Finance.

  • UFM also partnered with the NGO Mercy Relief of Singapore to successfully implement the projects of “English for Everyone” (EFE) in Vietnam and Lao in three consecutive years of 2009, 2010 and 2011.

  • In addition to those programs, UFM has already signed MOUs on post-graduate programs and exchange programs of teaching staff and students with HELP University College of Malaysia; Northern Polytechnic University (NPU) and California Miramar University (CMU) of the US; Algoma University of Canada; James Cook University (JCU) and Management Institute of Nanyang of Singapore, etc.

Together with these developmental trends, UFM’s management mechanism has also been increasingly improved and appropriately adapted to the modern educational environment with an aim to enhance its staff’s quality for UFM’s future development.

  • Currently, UFM is building up a soundly organizational structure, operating comprehensively and effectively, and making contribution to fulfilling UFM’s political missions in education and training.

  • In the past 35 years, UFM’s teaching staff have constantly been trained and retrained and developed in terms of quantity as well as quality, particularly the number of post-graduated teaching staff has increased sharply. At present, more than 80% of the teaching faculty hold Master’s and Doctoral degrees, associate professorships and professorships. Furthermore, UFM’s administrative staff have also been expanded with new recruits of higher working quality to meet the needs of the University’s development in the new period.

Learning and teaching facilities have increasingly been upgraded and modernly equipped.

    Facilities are one of the most important factors to UFM’s development and enhancement of training quality. Investments in training facilities have been well taken care of by UFM, which is now a university equipped with modern facilities with spacious classrooms and IT labs.
