Senior Colonel, Prof. Dr. Tran Minh Huong, President of the People’s Police Academy affirmed the significance of the research and application of systems thinking in the process of developing the PPA into the key higher education institution, achieving national standards.

Based on systems thinking, the Academy has identified 4 mainstays: (1) E-PPA, (2) Information technology and connectivities, (3) Smart lecture hall, (4) E-Library. These mainstays are considered to have positive impacts on the PPA’s system of education, training, scientific research, lecturers and students. Systems thinking will create an effective connection between the above factors; build a scientific mechanism for operation. The E-PPA is believed to be the first model of smart university in the system of police training institutions, applying systems thinking in leadership and administration on the principle of: "Synchronize the data, link the resources and share in time".
