My goals for the Fellowship

I am most hopeful that during my Fellowship I will be able to:

  • Learn about performance audit theory and practice. I am particularly interested in learning more about how performance audits are used to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of government programs and activities.
  • Learn how governments work in Canada and in other Fellows’ countries. I am eager to learn about the different ways in which governments operate in different countries, and I believe that this experience will be invaluable in my future career as an auditor.
  • Develop my teamwork, planning, and audit topic selection skills. I am confident that the Fellowship will provide me with the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with experienced auditors, and I am excited to develop these essential skills.

The impact I hope to make as a graduate Fellow

After I complete my Fellowship, I hope to make a significant difference in the State Audit Office of Vietnam and in my country as a whole by contributing to the development of the SAV’s performance audit practice and raising the profile of performance audit among SAV colleagues.
