On the occasion of Vietnamese Teachers’39; Day 11/20, we would like to send our most sincere thanks to the founder of Nguyen Trai University, the former soldier who founded the university to pay back his life and gratitude his team – Dr.Nguyen Tien Luan.
Young men at the front of Military Region 5:
Surely every student or alumnus of Nguyen Trai University has at least once heard about the youth story
of our respected Headmaster. The youth of Dr. Nguyen Tien Luan is at the battlefield – where so many of
his teammates fought heroically and lay down so that the country would be peaceful and independent.
And for him, to be returned is not only happiness, but also the opportunity to continue to dedicate and
desire for himself and for his sacrificed teammates.
Returning after the rain of bombs and fire of war, with a burning dream of being devoted, the teacher was sent to Germany to study by the State, then returned to work in the fields of museums, newspapers, and fine arts. Although he has many opportunities to grow into a senior manager, the art exhibitions at home and abroad have turned the second soldier into a successful businessman.
Aspiration to repay debt and gratitude to teammates:
And after years of efforts with great determination of the teacher, on February 5, 2008, Nguyen Trai
University – the university full of enthusiasm and aspirations of Dr. Nguyen Tien Luan – officially
established. This is less expected because for an entrepreneur, a doctorate in economics like him,
investing in many other fields will return much higher profits. But the teacher who devoted all his
enthusiasm to the students is also to give himself an opportunity to contribute to the improvement and
enhancement of Vietnam’s education, rather than to fulfill his dream his comrades at the age of 18, 20 in
He once shared, “The greatest aspiration of my life is to live to pay my debts and to be grateful to my
teammates. The greatest reward of my life is student success. The greatest desire of my life is to help
students succeed faster than lecturers…". Perhaps these are the words from the heart he wants to send
to his students.
Setting up a university is difficult, to develop it "to become one of the leading universities in Vietnam and
the region" as the goal of the first day setting up the school project is much more difficult. For him, the
biggest concern is how to get students after graduating 100% to get a job because according to the
teacher: "Do graduate and then unemployed, what's the reputation?". He said that the fact that your
students graduate without a job is a crime of the teacher. Therefore, how to find good methods, the best
method to help your students stand firm when stepping out of the university gate is the common concern
of many lecturers.
Dr. Nguyen Tien Luan with education:
After much time thinking with the desire to find solutions to help his students quickly find jobs after
graduation, Dr. Luan and teachers of Nguyen Trai University have applied the "dual training" model since
year 2013. The program is a collaboration between schools and businesses to teach students and put
students into practice in businesses. This is a program that is considered to be very effective, useful for
students, giving them the opportunity to access to practice and hone their practical skills. With the
application of this model, his greatest hope is to help his students graduate 100% have jobs.
Promoting outstanding results after more than 10 years of operation, in the coming years, Mr. Luan and
his teachers in the university’s Board of Directors have set new directions and goals to grasp the current
trend. in the field of globalcitizens – Supplying high quality human resources for foreign businesses,
especially Japan and Korea.
In order to achieve the above-mentioned goal, lecturers and students of Nguyen Trai University
need to innovate their creative minds. First priority is to implement the On-the-spot study model
to the On-the-spot education export model. through cooperation with high-class universities in
South Korea and Japan to open new fields of study that have not been trained or developed in
Vietnam such as: Startup creation industry, Artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0 – Digital
Technology, Information Technology, Biotechnology, Automation and Design, Rapid deployment
of Urban construction investment
International Smart University in Ha Dong District, Hanoi City with an area of 34 ha ”..
Receive the responsibility to impart to young people knowledge and life skills; Dr. Luan still dedicates
himself day and night to the education cause to do well. Let’s wish him a lot of health so he can continue
to help more generations of students to devote to the education of the country.
