With the cooperation of strategic partners, VILAS successfully laid the foundation for professional training of these fascinating professions.

There is a big and fast-growing demand for high-quality professionals who possess an end-to-end mindset and cross-functional alignment skills in Logistics & Supply Chain Management. As a result, there has been a significant increase of SCM programs appearing in Vietnam universities in recent years. To safeguard its place in the list of top universities in this field, VILAS is continuously looking to ensure a high-quality program. To attract top talent, VILAS is motivated to find new and innovative approaches of delivering their courses. The goal is to develop the next generation of Supply Chain Leaders!

VILAS – organizes the Vietnam Supply Chain Challenge to expand the students’ network in the field of Supply Chain & Logistics. The powerful concept of ‘learning by experience’ with a business game helps them to better understand the topic of supply chain operations in FMCG companies. This in contrast to the more theoretical approach in the academic world at universities. VILAS provides an attractive and competitive playground for Logistics – Supply Chain talents in Vietnam.
