AAE did a wonderful job with coordinating the Spring 2015 fairs. Their programs are always well organized and the staff are very professional. AAE really delivers a nice recruitment package that includes: extensive in-country promotion of the fairs, the distribution of the Principal’s Guide (translated into Vietnamese), Vietnamese Student Ambassador support for each event and high school student contact information for campus follow-up activities. This past spring, SUNY Old Westbury met high school students that were in their sophomore, junior and senior years. We are definitely working on creating success now and for the future years. If your college is recruiting in Vietnam, attending the AAE fairs is a great way to get started.

I enjoyed speaking at the AAE Education Fairs in Ho Chi Minh City, Danang and Hanoi in mid 2015. I also enjoyed meeting and traveling with the many educators and educational representatives that joined our group in all three cities. Education has been a pillar of the improving US-Vietnam relationship and Vietnamese students flocked to all three fairs to learn more about U.S. educational opportunities. Seeing the future of Vietnam, its young people, so seriously contemplating US educational possibilities makes me very optimistic that US-Vietnam relations will continue to deepen and grow more complex. - Christopher W.

The AAE Spring Fair 2015 was very well organized including all of the pre-fair information that was sent. One of the benefits for the students at the fairs was the attendance of US Embassy and Consulate officials who gave students important information as it pertained to studying in the United States. AAE staff continually made sure that all schools were supported during the fairs and had what they needed to be successful."

American Access Education is well organized and efficient. They put on a great series of fairs and school visits. What I love about them is that they do all the leg work up front, providing their partners a stage to present their programs in excellent venues. They are the hardest working group of people I have had the pleasure to work with and clearly understand the USA educational landscape. I only wish they operated in other countries.

The AAE Vietnam Spring 2015 fairs provided a great presence in the Vietnam market with well run programs in the three major cities. AAE staff provided exceptional support for each of the programs with promotion, logistics, travel, translators, etc. — above and beyond the expected!

I met the principals of AAE while they were in the planning stages for their company. I have closely watched their progress, as they developed internal quality control systems, established their offices in Ho Chi Minh City, and began working with colleges and universities across the United States. I have been continuously impressed by their professionalism and commitment to developing an ethically sound business focused, first and foremost, on the protection of students and care for their well-being. AAE is among very few international recruiting firms established by Americans and focused exclusively on the American higher education market. They have done an impressive job in a very short time, and have set a very high bar.Vice

AAE advertises itself as a full-service educational consulting agency. This is an understatement. AAE and its staff go the extra mile to help their students and families find the best-fit possible for their future education. The knowledge of AAE’s counseling staff is deep and their commitment to principled educational counseling is paramount. For institutions, AAE will work with you tirelessly to help you achieve your marketing and enrollment goals in Vietnam. Whether this means designing a Vietnamese brochure for your university, assisting at an educational fair, or helping arrange meetings with key stakeholders, AAE is committed to giving your institution a bespoke service package and help you exceed your goals for this rising market. AAE is one of Drexel University’s highest official agent partners. Drexel is very selective with agent selection, and we only partner with companies that we believe will be able to bear the legacy of Anthony J. Drexel with honor and integrity. AAE is not only one of Drexel University’s highest quality partners, but one of our highest producing partners as well. After only seven months of partnership, AAE has already referred many high-quality students to Drexel University. They are outshining our other partners, and simply wowing us each day.

AAE is one of our first educational consultants. They do an outstanding service to the students from Vietnam. They always have the students’ interest at the forefront. They protect the students and provide them opportunities with Higher Education in the U.S. market. The excellent AAE staff has breath of experiences in higher education and have been very well trained by AAE to address the issues the students confront when attempting to continue their studies in the US. I am very impressed by the professionalism.
Joseph Ugras / Associate Provost La Salle University
AAE offers superior services in the U.S. and on the ground in Vietnam. Staff members and ownership (especially Ken!) are energetic, well informed, and highly capable. The office in Ho Chi Minh is attractive and stocked with great resources for families and students, and students are prepared to succeed when they arrive for study in the U.S.

I had a very good visit to your Ho Chi Minh City office last Fall. I was very impressed with the professionalism of AAE team there.
