Hong Kong Polytechnic University (HK PolyU), is ranked the number one university in Tourism & Hospitality studies and also chose UNWTO.TedQual to accredit their programs. During three years of preparation for accreditation, DTU received direct guidance from Hong Kong PolyU before UNWTO officially accredited the two DTU programs.

Professor Min said: “The DTU Tourism program deserves the highest evaluation in Vietnam and have recently been accredited by the UNWTO as a TedQual institution. As a result, the programs are now recognized worldwide for their quality of their educational and research. Our current strategy is to focus on three areas to further refine and broaden their excellence. Firstly, the programs must be able to meet the demands of tourists and the tourism industry to serve a diverse range of tourists. Students must go out into the farthest locations possible and experience cultural diversity. The breadth and depth of international student exchanges will be expanded to provide better opportunities for DTU students to experience as much as possible in the development of their future careers.”
