Dear Members and Friends

As discussed previously in this column providing tangible benefits for membership of industry associations is a complex and difficult process, but one that is essential for continued growth. Like many other business associations AusCham has an active collection of discount partners, and members can take advantage of discounts at many different businesses throughout Vietnam. The way this is packaged is currently under review, and we will be making a very exciting announcement in the near future about a new initiative that we believe is unique, which will make finding and using discount partner offers much easier.

Our latest discount partner offer is probably the most exciting that we have ever offered, thanks to the ongoing support of one of our major benefactors RMIT Vietnam. From 2019 RMIT will offer AusCham members not only discounts on postgraduate programs of 10% (HCMC) and 15% (Hanoi) for what is arguably one of the most highly respected MBA / EMBA programs in Asia, but also the same discounts on undergraduate programs for not only AusCham members, but the children of AusCham members as well. The scope of this offer is truly amazing. It provides benefit at a corporate level for larger businesses and SME’s who wish to undertake postgraduate study for themselves or their employees in the form of MBA/EMBA, right through to the next generation of business leaders who are the children of members. We are very proud of the quality of Australian education and the positive impact it has had for many years now on Vietnam, and there is a vast alumni of approximately 65,000 Vietnamese who have benefited from this. This incredibly generous offer from RMIT for AusCham members reinforces Australia’s commitment to providing world class education in this country, and provides substantial and tangible benefits for membership.
