ISO 9001: 2015 is known with the full name "Quality Management Systems - Requirements". It is the fifth version of ISO 9001 issued in 2015 and is also the latest version of ISO 9001 (since 1994). ISO 9001:2015 brings together management experience from European, American and Japanese cultures.

Compared with the previous version ISO 9001: 2008, the major difference of ISO 9001: 2015 is that the organization must have "risk thinking" in all its activities and processes; thereby strengthening control measures, management measures, preventive measures; helping all departments and employees minimize errors and damages, increase efficiency and competitiveness. Selecting ISO 9001: 2015, Van Lang University aims at international standards of quality management system, laying the foundation for the reform of the apparatus, raising the management capacity of leaders, and increasing the potential of developing the school in the new period.
