GTU to jointly train postgraduates with Trishakti Tourism University, Indonesia.
On November 23,2018, Cheng Daopin, President of GTU, and his team visited the Trishakti Tourism University in Indonesia and met with Mr. Bimo, Chairman of the Trishakti Foundation, and Ms. Fetty, President of the Trishakti Tourism University. In their meeting, the two sides had a talk over the joint training of postgraduate students and the construction of the Indonesian Campus, the China-Indonesia Tourism Business College. They also signed the “TTU-GTU Joint Training Master Program”, which is going to take effect from 1 January 2019.
The program will first recruit 10 students from China and the Belt and Road countries in 2019. This is our initiative to accumulate experience of training postgraduates and prepare for future master's program. The project highlights the integration of learning and research and adopts dual tutorial system. After graduation, students can not only obtain master's degree of Trishakti Tourism University, but also scientific research certificate of GTU.
During the meeting, President Cheng Daopin made five proposals to promote a deeper cooperation with Trishhakti Tourism University. First, GTU can provide school space for Trishhakti Tourism University on campus as a way to realize two-way interactive education in China and Indonesia. Second, we can help graduates of TTU find jobs in China. Third, based on the China-ASEAN Tourism Education Alliance, we can organize students to carry out alliance activities in Guilin in summer and winter vacations. Fourth, we plan to recruit high-level teachers and experts from Indonesia or other ASEAN countries with the help of TTU. Finally, we should work together to accelerate the preparations for the 2019 annual meeting of the China-ASEAN Tourism Education Alliance, and strive to include more international agency officials, tourism administrative officials and alliance members as participants of the meeting. President Cheng Daopin’s proposal was appreciated by Trishhakti Tourism University and both parties agreed to gradually implement the five proposals and better achieve the goal of deepening the cooperation between the two universities.
The heads of the International College of the Belt and Road, GTU and the ASEAN Research Base of the China Tourism Research Institute, GTU as well as the leaders of the Trishhakti Turism University, attended the meeting. Three mainstream media in Indonesia reported the event.
