Abstract

In today's fast-changing and highly volatile world, improving the quality of education has become a universal goal. The curriculum and content of higher education are all directed toward forming the personality and intellectual abilities of students to meet the job market. Striving to ensure the quality of education is an important goal for any country, especially for developing countries, because it has been proven that economic growth is determined by educational growth. If they ignore the quality of education or are not interested in accrediting the quality of education, universities in developing countries, including Vietnam, will face the risk of development being pushed back. Accreditation in education is a process by which agencies evaluate an educational institution or an educational program and recognize that it has met and satisfied, or exceeded, predetermined educational quality requirements and standards. However, instead of implementing effective activities to ensure the quality of teaching and learning, many universities in developing countries, including in Vietnam, are trying to seek external assessment and recognition though missing preparing records, documents, reports, and evaluations, quality assurance plans about policies, and community services.
