VinUniversity is the first private, not-for-profit Vietnamese university established based on international standards by Vingroup. The university integrates the models of excellent international universities with the unique cultural and economic characteristics of Vietnam, in order to make a breakthrough in Vietnamese higher education and to become a world-class University. VinUniversity has two overarching goals: to excel in teaching and training; and to produce graduates and researchers that contribute to the development of key economic sectors of Vietnam.

The formation of the VinUniversity is actualized through the collaboration of Vingroup with Cornell University and the University of Pennsylvania. While Cornell University provides academic consulting on Management, Engineering, and Technology; UPenn focuses on the Health Sciences disciplines. Both Cornell University and University of Pennsylvania are distinguished Ivy League institutions based in the United States of America. Cornell University is involved in every aspect of the development of VinUniversity from infrastructure and campus planning to curriculum development and faculty recruiting. Cornell’s SC Johnson College of Business is providing extensive academic advisement in a variety of areas, drawing from a wealth of faculty expertise at multiple colleges and units at Cornell University. UPenn’s medical and nursing schools are functioning in a similar fashion to guide the formation of health sciences education at VinUniversity and to interface with Vinmec, Vingroup’s outstanding health system, which currently encompasses 7 hospitals throughout Vietnam. VinUniversity aims to meet the QS 5-star rating standards and will include the following colleges within the University: College of Business & Management; College of Engineering & Computer Science; and College of Health Sciences. VinUniversity aims to educate and train outstanding, knowledgeable, and passionate individuals to improve themselves and societal conditions, inspire the current and next generations, and make lasting positive impacts on global development.


Vingroup, formerly known as Technocom Corporation, was founded in 1993 in Ukraine. In the early 2000s, Vingroup started in Vietnam with two key brands: Vincom and Vinpearl. In January 2012, Vinpearl JSC merged with Vincom JSC to form Vingroup Joint Stock Company. Vingroup is one of the biggest private conglomerate in Asia with a net value of 5.5 billion USD (2019) and a market capitalization value of around $16 billion USD. As a multi-sector corporation, Vingroup is one of the leading private enterprises in Vietnam, operating in eight core business areas, including real estate, retail, hospitality, education, agriculture, healthcare, heavy industry (starting with automobile manufacturing), and smart technology. On aligning with its mission of creating a better life for the Vietnam people, in 2016, education and healthcare have become not-for-profit value-based systems.  In 2019, Vingroup was recognized among the “Top 50 Most Valuable Brands in Vietnam” (by Brand Finance magazine).

Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong, the founder and chairman of Vingroup, is a visionary and true patriot of Vietnam with a firm belief that education is the single biggest catalyst that can transform the destiny of an individual, a society, and a nation. His aspiration is to create a breakthrough in the Vietnamese education sector and to groom the next generation of leaders in the 21st century and beyond for Vietnam.
