The contest, which attracted over 500,000 students from 37 nations, held competitions specialized in using Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
This is the third time HCMC Banking University student Vi has taken part, having missed out in the last two years in the final round. However, his patience, experience and perseverance paid off this time.
“It is wonderful for me to win this award on my third attempt. My efforts have finally paid off,” said Vi who netted US$5,000.
This is the third time Vietnam has joined the contest. In 2010, Vietnamese representatives Le Nguyen Anh Phuong and Nguyen Tran Duy Phuong won fourth and sixth place in Excel 2003 and World 2003 respectively.
