The Fulbright School of Public Policy

The Vietnam Program was an integral part in the creation of the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP) commonly known as the Fulbright School.

FETP started as a partnership between the Vietnam Program and the University of Economics-Ho Chi Minh City in 1994. Now, FETP is a leading center of public policy teaching and research offering a Master’s of Public Policy (MPP)—the first degree program of its kind in Vietnam—and executive training programs for senior officials. Today, the program is a part of the emerging Fulbright University Vietnam (FUV), an independent university.

Harvard’s Vietnam Program continues to support the program and currently facilitates scholarly exchanges between Harvard and the Fulbright School of Public Policy.
