IIG Vietnam, one of the five members of the International Investment Group (IIG) which are authorized representatives of the Educational Testing Service (ETS) in Vietnam, on Monday held the award ceremony for winners of the Microsoft Office World Champion’s final

national round which took place last month. The event was held at HCMC Banking University in District 1.

“This is the chance for Vietnamese students to access the international standard, proving their ability to the nation and world competitors as well as bolstering their career potential,” said Siripat Patrangul, director of Certiport in Thailand, Myanmar and Indochina, at the award ceremony.

Defeating nearly 1,000 students from 109 schools around the country, on Monday 60 students from HCMC Banking University, HCMC University of Economics, Hoa Sen University and HCMC University of Foreign Language and Information Technology were honored and awarded for top marks after two national rounds.

Among them are Tran Vuong Quoc Anh and Tran Dinh Vi who will represent Vietnam against students from over 60 nations at the final round of the Microsoft Office World Champion 2012 at Las Vegas, Nevada in the U.S. from July 29 to August 1.

“Computing skills are now required in most jobs as well as modern life so the competition is not only for students to show off their talents but also to maximize the use of Microsoft technology to realize their full potential to prepare for their future, for real life as well as seeking a good job,” said Lutz Ziob, general manager of Microsoft Learning, a training and skills development organization reaching millions of Microsoft customers worldwide.

Winners of the world round will be awarded US$5,000 for first prize, US$1,000 for second place and US$500 for third.
