Out of 10 outstanding educational events in 2005 was the Prime Minister’s approval of the project called "Higher Education in Vietnam" (The Resolution No. 14/2005 / NQ-CP dated on November 2, 2005). The project was in line with the 15-year strategy (2006 – 2020), its objective was to upgrade Vietnam’s higher education and bring it closer to the regional higher education and the world’s advancement. Base on that purpose, according to the Decision No. 7581/QD-BGDT, the Ministry of Education and Training assigned UIT to implement the Advanced Program at the undergraduate level in Information Systems in 2007. The objectives were as follows:

  • Build undergraduate programs which have the same level with those of the world’s famous universities.
  • Facilitate exchange and integration in training and scientific research; meanwhile work on the synchronous upgradation ranging from training operation to professional qualifications of both management officers and teaching staffs.
  • Students are entitled to receiving hands-on knowledge and making systematical improvement of their level. This enables them to provide themselves with the ability of thinking critically, acquiring professional skills and getting sufficient foreign languages. At the time of graduation, they will be able to meet social requirements for their job.
