The program is comprised of eight distinct semesters, alternating between classroom studies and real industry experience for a diverse and comprehensive academic experience. This curriculum gives students a 360-degree learning experience: they will gain the necessary body of knowledge, build professional skills and develop a true hospitality mindset. At the end of the fourth year, the degree will culminate with a senior project designed to tackle a real-life challenge in the industry. Two intensive supervised field training periods are part of the program.
"International B.B.A. in Hotel and Resort Management (with the academic certification of Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne"prepares students for management and leadership positions in the vibrant and growing national and international hospitality industry. Positions as front office manager, guest relations manager, executive housekeeper, sales manager, restaurant manager, food and beverage director, and -at the end- general director, are just examples of jobs graduates of this program obtain. But students are also prepared for starting up and developing their own business in the hospitality or service sector.
This Bachelor's programme operates with the academic certification of the world famous Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, means that the Ecole Hôteliere de Lausanne has secured the international standards of the programme, has further developed and guided our instructors and monitors frequently the quality of the curriculum and the courses.
Mr.Chanin Donavanik, MD & CEO of Dusit International, said that this programme is not a carbon copy of the course offered in Switzerland but a combination of Swiss and Thai hospitality values. "We should never start trying to copy each other as we both have our strengths based on our values, traditions, history etc. In my view we should further develop our own uniqueness and identity, because that is the reason people travel to Thailand or Switzerland. Having said that, it might be that we can learn from Switzerland more about the way they coordinate and manage hospitality and tourism on their different levels, whereas Switzerland can probably learn from the ways we have developed hospitality and service here".
Ms. Veera Pardpattanapanich, Rector of Dusit Thani College, added that the four-year degree programme, brings together the strengths of both institutions and is anticipated to lead to a significant transformation of hospitality education within Thailand ahead of the forming of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015. "The new programme will become a blend of the highest possible international standards together with renowned Thai hospitality values. DTC has a unique advantage in that it is a dedicated learning institute for hospitality, and has been appointed by Ministry of Tourism and Sports to develop a curriculum and training materials for ASEAN Common Competency Standards for Tourism Professionals. We can specialize and pass on to the students in-depth knowledge and skills that will ensure they are in a much better position to gain employment when graduating whether it be here in Thailand, in the ASEAN community or further afield".
The recruitment for this programme is now opened for the students from both Thailand and neighbouring countries.
