Two major curricula are provided: I. Business Operation of Restaurants. II. Business Operation of Hotels. We hire professional faculty members to teach our students real-world experiences with both emphases on theories and practices.
Students are required to hone their foreign language and communication skills, to learn local cultures and share their own life experiences.
