Prof.Dr. Mo Chul Min was appointed Rector of the DTU School of Hospitality and Tourism 
According to Prof.Dr. Mo Chul Min, the DTU's tourism program deserves the highest evaluation in Vietnam. Recently, DTU’s tourism programs have been accredited by the UNWTO as a TedQual institution, which means that these programs are recognized worldwide in terms of quality of the tourism education, training and research programs.
As the Dean of the DTU Hospitality and Tourism Institute, Prof.Dr. Mo Chul Min’s strategies are to focus on three areas to further refine and broaden these excellent programs.     
- First of all, the university’s tourism program must be able to meet the demands of tourists and of the tourism industry. Competencies must be developed and trained so that students can lead change while meeting the demands of the industry. 
 - Tourism knows no borders, although restrictions still remain due to the pandemic. Tourism is a business that delivers experiences from heart to heart. In order to serve a diverse range of tourists, students must go out into the widest possible world and experience cultural diversity. To this end, the breadth and depth of international exchange among students will be expanded.
- The College of Tourism cannot grow alone. The College of Tourism can develop through joint projects, joint research, joint planning, and joint fund raising by forming partnerships with various institutions, including companies, research institutions, universities, public institutions, and governments, not only in Vietnam but also worldwide.

According to Prof. Dr. Mo Chul Min, since DTU was evaluated as one of the best universities in Vietnam in the world university evaluation, Korean universities have recently started making frequent requests for exchange and cooperation. 
The establishment of DTU's exchanges with excellent universities in Korea has brought in certain effects in its training activities. Exchanges with universities in Korea, Vietnam's main partner in various fields such as tourism, trade and investment, are planned to be strengthened.
The Korean youth's interest in Vietnam is increasing since there are many cultural similarities and commonalities. “So I think conditions are being created to deepen the bond between students from both countries. This will not only provide students with excellent opportunities to learn about cultural diversity, but also provide great help in developing their future careers," said Prof. Dr. Mo Chul Min.
