Tourism is the most dynamic, innovative, internationalized, labor-intensive, and outgoing sector of our economy. The Tourism Professions are extremely important to our country because they can improve the image of tourism by strengthening the competitiveness of our tourism product.
Tourists arriving in our country expect to be welcomed with politeness, sincerity, and professionalism. Our goal is for our students to acquire, in experiential ways, the skills and resources required to achieve success in the hotel business, including reception, reservations, marketing, personnel management, housekeeping, or catering departments (restaurants, bars, cost control, banqueting) as well as other forms of tourism businesses, such as conference centers, cruise ships, theme parks, etc. It is also possible for them to establish their own tourism business.
