HCMC - Asia Pacific Education and Human Resources Development Joint-Stock Co. has become a strategic shareholder of the training institute Dale Carnegie Vietnam, the company’s chairwoman and chief executive officer said.

Nguyen Thi Ngo said Asia Pacific Education and Human Resource had acquired a 20% stake of Dale Carnegie Vietnam to become a major shareholder of the training institute after signing the deal in HCMC on Monday.

Ngo did not disclose the stake value but said Asia Pacific College (APC) under the company would gradually adopt courses, particularly those on capacity and skills development of Dale Carnegie Vietnam, which is also known as Dac Nhan Tam Entrepreneurs School in the country.

Ngo told the Daily after signing the contract with Nguyen Trinh Khanh Linh, chairperson and CEO of Dale Carnegie Vietnam, that there were more than 1,000 students at the college’s facilities of kindergarten, primary and high school levels.

Ngo said academic results at the APC had been recognized at more than 100 universities around the world and that the strategic partnership with Dale Carnegie Vietnam would support the college’s strategy to train students able to work globally.

Linh of Dale Carnegie Vietnam said through the partnership with the APC, Dale Carnegie Vietnam would introduce training programs on skills development to the sixth to the twelfth graders. 

Ngo said new Asia Pacific schools would go up and running in Nha Trang and Binh Thuan in central Vietnam as well as in the Laotian city of Vientiane. She expected work on the first Asia Pacific school in Laos would begin next year if everything process smoothly.

Asia Pacific planned investment capital of VND500 billion (US$24 million) for the 2006-2011 period and an additional VND2 trillion in the coming years to develop schools in and outside Vietnam.
