VJU is a new model university , with Japanese qualities that have been adjusted to the needs of Vietnam. The university upholds the principle of sustainable development, based on financial autonomy and resource socialization.
The difference with VJU lies in its connections with VNU member universities and its international nature, with intensive participation from Japanese partners. The university is given a high autonomy in accordance with organisational and operational regulations issued by the Prime Minister of Vietnam. VJU’s council plays an important role in orienting the development, mobilizing resources and deciding crucial affairs of the university.
Faculties and institutes under VJU will be established and operated by VJU and its Japanese partners. Each VJU faculty and institute will follow a high-quality model based on the exploitation of available strengths of VNU and its Japanese partners. Accordingly, faculties and institutes can soon progress towards autonomy and be capable of cooperating with enterprises, especially Japanese ones.

Thus, VJU can become a hub in attracting Japanese companies who wish to deploy or outsource R&D activities in Vietnam.
