Herbalife Vietnam has supported VTV3 in organising a competition to recognise aspirational university talent, in which students from Ho Chi Minh City University of Medicine and Pharmacy won first prize.

The reality show, called Students of a New Generation 2023, is dedicated to creating exciting competition for Vietnamese university students to learn and practice their soft skills and develop creative thinking. The final round of the competition, featuring the top three finalists, took place on November 11, and was broadcast live on VTV3.
The three teams that qualified for the final round were the Ho Chi Minh City University of Medicine and Pharmacy with their project on first aid skills for the community; Thai Nguyen Medical University with their project on preventing tuberculosis; and the Ho Chi Minh City Economics University with their project using the circular economy to increase farm produce value.

The three finalists went through four intense competition rounds: presenting their project summary report; team counterargument; calling for investment; and ‘students of a new generation’.
With the most convincing performance, the University of Medicine and Pharmacy team was named the winner of the competition.
“We are very impressed by the talent, knowledge, creativity, and environmental, social and governance awareness demonstrated by these Generation Z students. This partnership with VTV3 aligns with our strong commitment to supporting people who strive to thrive and realise their full potential,” said Vu Van Thang, general manager for Herbalife Vietnam and Cambodia.
“I hope that all relevant stakeholders and the wider community will continuously support the young generation, Gen Z students in particular, in their pursuit of dreams.”
In addition to valuable prizes with $4,200 for the champion and $2,100 for the runners-up, the champions and runners-up also received meaningful support from sponsors, who pledged to provide communications sponsorship to help the projects by the University of Medicine and Pharmacy and Thai Nguyen Medical University become more widely known to the Vietnamese public.
Organised for the first time this year, Students of a New Generation received active participation from thousands of Gen Z students from 40 universities nationwide. Students were excited about the opportunity to learn and compete in a variety of competencies comprising teamwork, leadership, presentation, project management, and creativity.
