• We have worked with Capstone Vietnam over the past several years.  They are exceptional partners in helping our college establish a strong presence in Vietnam.  Their knowledge and understanding of the Vietnamese market and educational system has greatly supported our efforts to increase enrollments from Vietnam.  

    Thank you Capstone! 

  • Here’s one about a coffee talk we organized in January 2018: 

    Very practical, very productive. The personal atmosphere and sitting and talking with a few very interested students and parents provided an atmosphere parallel to what students would experience at the university on a small campus. I would definitely want to do this again.   

  • Here’s another about two coffee talks we organized in November 2017:

    Thank you all so very much for organizing an excellent series of school visits and coffee talks for me while I was in HCMC and Hanoi.  I think this is helpful to Saint Rose’s recruitment efforts in Vietnam.  I appreciate the Facebook promotions, texting and articles.  I am very grateful to work with such smart and gracious professionals that  are truly valuable partners. 

  • The quality of Capstone's services puts them at the top of the class.  Capstone has a great relationship with the community and their staff didn’t hesitate to introduce me to partners. I would recommend that colleagues explore expanding their business relationships by working with Capstone Vietnam. 

  • We partnered with Capstone Vietnam since the launch of Hobsons’ Virtual Student Fairs. Mark and I worked together when he was director of IIE-Vietnam so I knew that his high-quality level of service would continue as we tried promoting our online events to students in Vietnam through Capstone.  Thank you Mark, Hang and all the team for the passion you put into your work every day! 

  • I was very pleased with my experience participating in the StudyUSA Higher Education Fair.  The Capstone Vietnam staff are very knowledgeable about the educational landscape in Vietnam and are very generous in sharing that knowledge.  There are so many higher education fairs that it can be difficult to select which ones to participate in but Mark and his staff make their fairs stand out amongst the rest.  Participating in this fair was more than just a fair, it was an opportunity to learn, network and visit local high schools.  I plan to continue our participation in these events.  

  • Capstone walks an extra kilometer or two in order to meet the exhibitors' needs. The interpreters were especially good as were Capstone staff in ensuring all went smoothly. It's clear Capstone knows how to attract authentic prospective students.


  • I have been working with Capstone Vietnam since its inception.  Capstone’s professional way of doing business, the immense knowledge of the US higher education system that their staff possess and the incredibly successful fairs they organize are the reasons Edmonds Community College has participated in all of their events related to studying in the United States. 

  • We were able to produce recruitment materials in country for a fraction of the price of what it would have cost to produce the same thing in the US and ship it to Vietnam. Capstone’s marketing and promotional ideas are innovative and effective. With their assistance we have been successful in building the brand and reputation of NOVA. 

  • Capstone Vietnam’s Study USA Fairs represent great value for community colleges seeking to recruit students from Vietnam. Capstone’s fairs are the only ones that are exclusive to U.S. community colleges/two-year institutions. Their quality of service and attention to detail are some of the best in the business, thanks to their experienced staff and carefully screened volunteers.   

  • The Capstone Fair series was a great success for the University of Colorado Denver.  It helped our University gain tremendous exposure in cities and especially high schools we would not have otherwise been able to access with similar results.  Capstone brings unparalleled expertise specific to the Vietnamese market and can give your school a more comprehensive strategy when recruiting in Vietnam.  The logistics and support they arrange throughout the tour are also highly commendable.  CU Denver is looking forward to joining the tour again!  

  • Edmonds Community College has been working closely with CAPSTONE for several years. We have been very pleased with the results of our partnership. Capstone staff are knowledge of the community college systems in the USA as well as their connections with local high schools and US consulate and embassy  have been instrumental in the success of their recruitment events.  Whether it is a fair or a high school visit, events are well-organized and, most importantly, very well-attended.  I strongly recommend CAPSTONE fairs to any school who wants to penetrate the Vietnamese market. This agency will open the door and provide market intelligence and support every step of the way. 

  • This is the second time this year (2014) that I had the opportunity to participate in the higher education fairs organized by Capstone Vietnam. Both times were productive and fun, thanks especially to the organization and warm hospitality of Dr. Mark Ashwill, managing director, Hang deputy director, and the rest of the Capstone staff. I attended a similar fair back in 2012, but the Capstone events are special in that these covered several cities and also involved visits to high schools that are important feeder schools for U.S. programs.  My PSU colleague, Aaron Hurt, and I enjoyed working with our Capstone student translators. Again, we are very grateful for the hospitality and kindness of Mark and his staff, and, more importantly, for the excellent organization, accommodations, and logistics of the Capstone crew.
