In November 2019, the CMC Division celebrated the graduation of its MSc in Media and Communication Management students in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The graduation ceremony was held by our partner institution in Vietnam, the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (VNU-USSH), and Prof. Neville Wylie, the Deputy Principal of the University of Stirling, attended the ceremony and addressed the graduating class.
In his speech, Prof. Wylie congratulated the graduates, praising their determination to invest in their future with a postgraduate degree while often juggling between full-time professional careers, family responsibilities and postgraduate education.
Prof. Wylie shared the University’s pride in forming an important network of more than 200 professionals which have become, and will become, “the next opinion makers and opinion shapers, communicating ideas and values across Vietnam and beyond”. He further added that, our Vietnam-based graduates now are part of a larger community counting more than 88,000 alumni “that stretches across the globe”.
Along with Prof. Neville, the Communications, Media and Culture Division hopes that these graduates “keep connected to that ‘Stirling clan’” and wishes them all the best on their future endeavours.
For more than a decade the University of Stirling has partnered with VNU-USSH to develop a unique course, that with the approval of the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, is delivered annually in both in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
