Some pictures of UNWTO.TedQual accreditation at DTU
With one of the highest numbers of students pursuing hospitality in Central Vietnam, DTU continues to actively hunt for new directions to guarantee Central Vietnam and the rest of the country human resources of the highest quality in both knowledge and skills. Most recently, DTU invited and obtained UNWTO.TedQual accreditation for two programs:
? International Hotel Management (PSU standard), and
? International Restaurant Operations Management (PSU standard).
Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Hong Kong PolyU), the world’s number one university in tourism & hospitality in many rankings, chose UNWTO.TedQual to accredit its training programs. In the three years of preparation for the accreditation, DTU received direct guidance and advice from Hong Kong PolyU, and on July 8, the UNWTO officially accredited the DTU programs in International Hospitality Management and in International Restaurant Operations Management with the rather high score of 771/845 points, meeting up to 91,2% of the criteria.
Interestingly, the two DTU programs of hospitality received accreditation with validity of 3 years, which is better than Hong Kong PolyU’s first UNWTO.TedQual accreditation with validity of just 2 years.

Students of the DTU’s PSU-standard Advanced & High Quality programs receive from 19 to 21 course completion certificates awarded by Pennsylvania State University, US. These certificates are recognized by universities in the US (in case students want to complete their studies or pursue a higher degree in the US).
Besides US-standard training programs, DTU students of tourism study with Problem-Based Learning (PBL) or Project-Based Learning (PrBL). This method is learner-centered and classes are geared towards actively working on projects, in order to improve lecturing and increase lecturing efficiency, and to allow for parallel learning.
