As I want to specialize in the principles of Human resource management (HRM), I can advise the other faculties as well when it comes to HRM problems. Secondly, I will continue doing highly practical-applied researches. Thirdly, I will organise seminars to share and exchange knowledge with my colleagues. Fourthly, I will diversify my management skills whereby the focus is to match theory and practice in solving problems relating to management and organisation in Human resource. Fifthly, I will try to select the most advanced and suitable management models to apply to the conditions of our college. Sixthly, I will continue taking part in training courses, programmes, projects, etc, because through these activities I am able to improve the capacity of human resource management. Finally, I will build close relationships between the Netherlands and Vietnam by coordinating in education, economic development and poverty reduction. For instance, based on new relationships with lectures, professors, institutes, and universities in the Netherlands, I will try to foster an agreement for exchanging students as well as lecturers between my own university and partners in the Netherlands.”
How will your country benefit from this programme?
“Globalization and international integration have forced management to apply scientific technology, e-knowledge and new management theories to confront opportunities and challenges inside and outside of organisations. Today’s management must innovate to meet the needs from the constant changing of the business environment which affects the organisations. Overlaps and lacks of scientific management methods lead to the weakness and the inadequacies in many organisations in Vietnam. Therefore, management skills and knowledge are considered important factors to promote reform processes for improving operations within organisations. I do believe that the knowledge and skills I gain from this programme will make a wonderful contribution to the development of management in the human resource field in Vietnam.”
