Educational philosophy

Before 2017, although there was no clear statement of educational philosophy in written forms, learning activities were carried out on the principle of learner-centeredness and still ensure the educational objectives of the Faculty: "Graduates of the programme of finance and banking with a specialization in banking master the modern fundamental knowledge of finance and banking economy in general, subject-specific knowledge of banking in particular, and good qualities, effective research and application capability in the context of international integration.” Since then, the PLOs are built according to the Faculty’s motto: graduates of the banking programme are "strong in knowledge, skilled, attentive, adaptive to a professional working environment."

In 2017, the Faculty officially discusses and agrees to build its own educational philosophy. That is
"Open education - adaptability - practicality"
 based on the mission and vision of the University


Open education aims to build a friendly educational environment that promotes learners’ activeness, creativity and independent thinking. For key regular activities, taking a learner-centred approach, teachers encourage students to discuss in groups and directly participate in conversations with their teachers. For extracurricular activities, students can join clubs to improve their skills. The standard library system also helps students to actively access learning materials. In addition, teachers always create online groups to enhance exchanges or dialongues between students and teachers.

Adaptability refers to the diversification of teaching, learning and assessment methods in accordance with the course objectives and training content, officially published in the course specification. Each subject applies a variety of teaching and learning methods, as well as combining various forms of learner assessment such as periodic and final exams; essay; group discussions and presentations, etc.

Practicality refers to that is the program and teaching methods are associated with practice, consistent with the application orientation of the University. The curriculum emphasizes the balance between theoretical and practical training throughout the programme and in each module. Practical training is organized in the following forms: simulations and practice; field-trips and observations; practicum at the end of the course; exchanges with career orientation and skills; employing visiting lecturers that are experts from banks/credit institutions.
