Nineteen students were presented with Master of Science scholarships at the third Scholarship Award Ceremony of adidas Group, its suppliers and charitable organization the Hinrich Foundation at the Adidas Sourcing Limited Ho Chi Minh Representative Office on Oct.23, 2015.
The scholars will study Global Production Engineering & Management Program at Vietnamese-German University which provides German teaching techniques , the quality standards of Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) and cutting-edge manufacturing curriculum.
The scholarship’s progressive “work-integrated learning” approach provides scholars a six-month hiatus in their studies to intern with sponsoring companies. Scholars will receive exposure to the real working environment of the suppliers’ production facilities, allowing them to develop their professional skills, hone their academic pursuits and better prepare for their careers upon graduation. They will also receive training and support from managerial mentors in the sponsoring companies.
The guests included representatives from adidas, adidas’ partner suppliers and the Hinrich Foundation along with the 19 scholarship recipients and their parents.
