Government inspectors have found many problems in master’s and doctoral programs at the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences (VASS).
A report issued five years ago found that one teacher guided up to 44 PhD students. And and one PhD was produced every 1.76 days. In 2015 and 2016, VASS produced 2,811 master’s degree graduates, but did not report this to the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET).
