RCES and the introduction of “UEB Category of Student Scientific Research”

Research is often labelled by the youth as arid, from another angle, it however can be seen as either a challenging and joyful “journey” of discoveries when promising results are gained, expectations are met, and outcomes are useful for the real life.

Following its internationalization and research promotion strategies, VNU University of Economics and Business has increasingly affirmed its academic position when producing high-quality research products, setting a foundation for the improvement of teaching, learning, and policy advisory, and contributing to the socio-economic development. In research, the University has always facilitated its faculties, PhD candidates, graduate and undergraduate students for activeness and creativity. The University plays an important role in directing and coordinating research activities as well as diversifying resources for research purposes.

Student research has received attention from the University for long, especially since the Research Community for Economics Students (RCES) was established on October 25, 2014. RCES bridges students and research through annual projects such as I Research, RCES Companion, RCES Spreadout…etc. With its mission of bringing research closer to students, RCES is doing its best to bring out a diverse and close-knit view of research, and one of such prominent, connected products is the UEB Category of Student Scientific Research.

The Category is part of RCES Spreadout, a non-profit project, with the aim of spreading valuable experiences and knowledge about research to economics students. The Category is compiled and published online twice a year by RCES, with the technical assistance of the Office of Journal and Publishing, the Office of Scientific Research and Development Cooperation, the Youth Union at the University.

So far, the Category of Student Scientific Research has published its fourth volume. It has received a lot of attention and appreciation from students inside and outside of the University. It is considered as a serious product, showing the enthusiasm of RCES members, the competences and contributions of the students in research. The Category is of great values as it:

- Provides students with useful knowledge and information they should know about research.

- Publishes excellent, top research ideas and results made by the students inside and outside of the University.

- Connects academic communities for students, supporting and promoting them to do research.

- Introduces useful and valuable lessons for students through the sharing of teachers, thereby inspiring to do research and showing them the right direction for research.
