PwC Vietnam and UEL have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to launch their strategic partnership in career orientation and training with the aim of improving the skills and abilities of UEL students.

PwC will also provide UEL with learning resources for lecturers and students. The parties will collaborate on developing curricula focused on information technology (IT), IT risks, IT controls, IT auditing, information security, and data analytics.The aim is to support graduates in their transition from university to a professional working environment and to help them adapt to the challenges of the fast-changing digital age.
Speaking at the MoU signing ceremony, PwC Vietnam partner Nguyen Hoang Nam said “As the leading service provider of IT auditing and controls, and as part of a global network of experts, we are confident that our partnership with UEL will bring positive changes to workforce development in new industries. We anticipate that the partnership will help the future workforce to prepare for the upcoming waves of digital transformation in the sectors that are most affected.”
Dr Nguyen Tien Dung, rector of University of Economics and Law, commented “We believe that the partnership with PwC Vietnam will benefit UEL’s operations in line with our mission to enrich students’ practical know-how and help them secure the best job offers by expanding our corporate relations with top firms.”
“The two parties will co-ordinate to organise conferences, seminars, and study session in common areas of expertise. By keeping themselves up-to-date with new knowledge, students will be able to access a greater range of career opportunities in financial institutions, credit institutions, and foreign companies in Vietnam, especially in the ‘Big 4’ firms,” added Nguyen My Hanh, PwC Vietnam’s IT Risk Assurance director.
Following the MoU signing, PwC Vietnam and UEL organised a conference on “Business information systems and modern human resource demands,” which attracted more than 500 students and experts in IT auditing.
PwC Vietnam provided students with essential information about IT auditing careers, recruitment demands, and the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) qualification—the most well-known certification recognised by all of the top IT auditing firms. This was a chance for students to determine the right direction for their studies and personal development in order to pursue a career in IT auditing.
