This is the second of two UNDP-sponsored papers on implementing higher education reform in Vietnam. This paper looks beyond the apex to suggest a system-level policy framework for designing and implementing a modern, expanded, quality system of higher education in Vietnam. The authors explore the tradeoff between expanding enrolment and improving educational quality; the role of the market in higher education; enforcing standards; and discuss how universities and colleges can equip students with the skills to support Vietnam‘s development.
