What we do

After the “Open door” policy was enacted by Vietnam’s government in the 1980s, the Vietnamese business society began to emerge at the dawn of the 21st century. These new economic reforms, particularly the Enterprise Law implemented in 2000, opened business opportunities for Vietnamese to enter into industries that were once restricted to them. As a result, enterprises quickly grew in quantity. However, as a young business society, many entrepreneurs and business leaders suffered lack of knowledge and capacity in leadership, management and other areas. This limited capacity tended to hinder their business sustainable development and competition with the rest of the world.

From this context, PACE was established in 2001 as the first business training school in Vietnam with the aspiration to deepen the business and management capacity of Vietnamese business leaders, and particularly to foster a new spirit, new values and new mindsets for a new Vietnamese business society. PACE provides business leaders and entrepreneurs with well-proven theories, knowledge, skills, and international standards, thereby helping them to grow their companies in a competitive and sustainable way. Subsequently, PACE has expanded its activities to enhance business knowledge, develop human resources, and talents for Vietnam. Thus, PACE is regarded as a pioneer for business education for the emerging generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs in Vietnam who are ready to seize the new opportunities of a growing market not only nationally, but also globally.
