As of 20 June 2012, there were a total of 193 Ministry of Education and Training-approved joint training programs, including 172 in operation, 15 that no longer admit students and six (6) that are no longer in operation. The dates of approval range from April 2000 to June 2012.
Fields of study range from Business Administration to Journalism to Rural Sociology. Most of the programs are in business- and economics-related fields such as Accounting, Banking, Business Administration, Finance, IT, and Marketing.
The top five (5) countries are as follows:
- France (32)
- Australia (27)
- England (22)
- USA (16)
- Taiwan & Singapore (12)
Recently, the Ministry has been cracking down on unlicensed programs and those with other problems. These actions make this list all the more important. Joint training programs that do not appear on it are either in the process of obtaining MoET approval or are illegal. The degrees of programs that fall into the latter category are not officially recognized in Vietnam.
To download the original Vietnamese version of the List of Joint Training Programs Approved by the Ministry of Education and Training visit this page on the Vietnam International Education Development (MoET) website and look for the PDF document linked from the section entitled Danh mục các chương trình liên kết đào tạo đã được Bộ GD&ĐT phê duyệt.

Note: This list does not include joint training programs offered by universities that do not come under the purview of MoET, including Vietnam National University in Hanoi and HCMC and some regional universities. Thanks, Yan, for the clarification.

“Joint training programs that do not appear on [this list] are either in the process of obtaining MoET approval or are illegal.”
Be careful that this list does not mention programs with the two VNUs (Hanoi and HCMC), Hue, Da Nang or Thai Huyen universities, i.e. the national and regional universities, that can open JTPs without preliminary MoET approval.
Point well taken. Having said that, Vietnam National University-Hanoi, which like its HCMC counterpart reports to the Prime Minister’s officer, has been under investigation regarding several of its JPTs, as you probably know: http://dtinews.vn/en/news/020/23293/more-misconduct-at-national-university-revealed.html.
P.S.: I’ll post a list of all of the other JPTs soon.
