With the aim of improving training quality, The Faculty of Finance and Banking has continuously invested and developed many projects and programs in the last few years. The simulation room was therefore established to meet the needs of the students and requirement of the programs.

The simulation room was open on 08/2011, which is one of the first and the most modern practical simulation room among all the universities in Vietnam. It is thoroughly invested with spacious facilities, including computer systems which are connected to the internet.

With this advanced simulation room, students will have many opportunities to practice and approach practical applications of the subjects that they are studying. For example, for those whose majors in Banking, the students will have several chances to work directly on the SMART BANK software. This is the modern banking software system used in the Ocean Bank. It allows students to practice at the basic operations of a commercial bank transaction such as creating new accounts, transferring, foreign trading, lending, loan tracking, and implementing the international payments.

This room is equipped with modern software such as BO/FO software, allowing students to directly carry out all the transactions of a stockbroker company such as creating an investment account, preparing investment reports, placing orders to buy or sell stock, managing portfolios, understanding as well as monitoring the online transaction.

This room additionally is the place where the competition called SSC (Student & Securities Challenges) is held annually, attracting students from inside and outside the Faculty.
