Boise State University’s College of Business and Economics has partnered with the National Economics University of Vietnam in Hanoi to offer a new program for international students.

The partnership, named the 2+2 program, will bring 40 Vietnamese undergraduate students each year to the College of Business and Economics by fall semester 2018. The students will study for two years in Vietnam and then finish their degree at Boise State, earning a bachelor’s degree in one of nine majors as a Bronco.

Ken Petersen, dean of the College of Business and Economics, said the partnership will enhance Boise State’s learning environment and also make a significant contribution to the university’s goals concerning diversity, globalization and enrollment. He noted that additional partnerships could be forged with other units across campus.

“There are so many possibilities for our university in Vietnam,” Petersen said.

The 2+2 program is part of a more than two-decade long collaboration between the College of Business and Economics and the National Economics University, and Vietnam.
