Author(s): Nguyen Van Nguyen, Tien-Trung Nguyen, Viet Cuong Tran, Thi-Trinh Do, Cam-Tu Vu

Accreditation has been implemented as the key approach for quality management in Vietnamese higher education. This paper focuses on investigating quality management of Vietnamese higher education programs by employing inclusion criteria in quantitative research for all 19 accredited programs. Through the analysis of the results of these programs, the study reveals that although the programs met quality standards required by the government, there are many areas that the programs need to work for improvement. Moreover, 5 is the maximum score in the 7-level scale that the programs were rated. Obviously, Vietnamese universities need to allocate more human and material resources in their programs.
