University Administration

Welcome to the American University in Vietnam.

As an educator with thirty years of experience in the US, including service as a university president and vice president at prestigious research universities, I know the importance students and families place on higher education.

AUV is special. Students will enjoy small classes and personalized instruction from faculty with the highest credentials from some of the best universities in the United States.

The curriculum is designed to help you on your career path – whether in business, hospitality, science, technology or communication. We also want each student to be able to communicate effectively, think critically and be a globally connected citizen.

Students will leave AUV with a strong foundation for future study or career, whether they complete their bachelor degree here in Vietnam or at one of many outstanding university partners in the US.

We encourage you to look further into our website and learn more about our student-centered, American quality education close to home.
