Dr. Peter Nyheim answers questions
One of the viewers asked: “What is a Smart Tourism and its place in the 4.0 Industrial Revolution?”
“To have a better understanding about Smart Tourism, let’s begin with Smart City concept. This refers to a city which uses the ICT application and other innovative tools to continuously update and access data online, to improve tourism services in Danang, for example.  At DTU, we use a book entitled “Technology strategy” and various applied IT training courses to prepare students for careers in the industry. They learn how to apply advanced technologies in tourism; how to manage hotels and restaurants; create tourism strategies, and other topics.” explained Dr. Nyheim.

Another viewer, Hung Minh, wanted to know more about English training for Hospitality students. Dr. Hsu explained: “At DTU, besides providing specialized information, we initially concentrate on improving professional & communication skills to enable our students to work internationally. They are taught by foreign lecturers from America, South Korea, Taiwan and elsewhere, which boosts their English skills and motivates them in their studies. During the first year, we focus on teaching the students listening, speaking, reading and writing and later more industry-oriented English. Meanwhile, they intern at international companies to prepare for their future careers.”
Others asked questions about student exchange programs. Their concerns were addressed by Mr. Nguyen Thi Tuyet, who explained that “The Faculty of Hospitality & Tourism offers global student exchange programs, in partnership with 7 universities in South Korea, one in Taiwan and one in Thailand, to help students broaden their knowledge and experience of foreign cultures.” 
“Come to the Institute for Hospitality & Tourism to register if you want to join us. Admission and tuition fees are free for eligible applicants. Over the past three years, 60 students have taken advantage of our exchange programs and DTU has offered the ASEAN Internship Exchange Network program to final-year Hospitality students.  This year, we are offering the "Passage to ASEAN 4.0" program to teach you more about other ASEAN cultures and extend your practical experience.” 
Remote viewers also submitted their questions to the DTU fan page inbox, asking for more details about DTU scholarship policies. The 5th live-streamed enrollment broadcast will be aired on February 29, entitled: “Career Prospects for Advanced & International Overseas Study and On-Site Study-Abroad Students”.
