At the workshops, scientists and experts highly appreciated the VNU's policy on developing interdisciplinary curriculums that promote the strength and uniqueness of VNU as well as taking advantage of the resources of member units in VNU. Economics and Management at Bachelor's level and Tourism Economics at the Master's level which were chosen to be opened are suitable with the two universities, and they also meet the needs of the society. These programs were expected to be in need of high-quality human resources in the future. At the workshop, there were comments saying that interdisciplinary curriculums were meticulously designed, meeting the conditions to open new major codes under the regulations of the Ministry of Education and Training and VNU.

However, professional contents of the two universities should also be integrated in some modules in the curriculum framework instead of keeping those modules separately administered by each school in order to highlight the uniqueness of the curriculum, meet the needs of the society and be in accordance with the characteristics of Vietnam. At the end of the workshop, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan thanked lecturers, scientists and experts for their valuable comments. They are important basis for design teams to review the entire curriculum with the expectation that the two universities will have high-quality interdisciplinary curriculums. Assoc.Prof.Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan also asked curriculum design teams to acquire ideas in the workshop, cooperate with each other more closely, and complete the projects submitted to Vietnam National University for official acceptance at VNU level.
