The Centre of Tourism and Integrated Resort Studies (CTIRS) under the Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) successfully held the Hospitality Student Management Trainee Program Graduation Ceremony. The Hospitality Student Management Trainee Program is aimed at equipping students with the practical skills required in real hospitality operations. The objective of the program is to provide students with practical courses and hands-on skills that supplement our regular FBA curriculum. Through knowledge training and practicum opportunities, students who completed this program will have more solid knowledge to pursue a relevant internship in the field of hospitality management upon graduation. The program is composed of theoretical and practical training. The whole program consists of 60 hours of course training and another 40 to 50 hours of practicum training. The practicum is conducted at the CTIRS such as the Integrated Resort Career Simulation Program (IRCSP). During the ceremony, certificates were presented to the graduated students, and the Best Student Leaders Awards were also presented. Congratulations again to all of our graduated students.

The CTIRS was established in 2018 by the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Macau. The primary objectives of the CTIRS include the provision of a platform at the FBA, through which the UM will support the efforts of the Macao Special Administrative Region Government of China to establish Macao as a world-class tourism and leisure centre in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). The UM will also use the platform to promote communication with other local higher education institutions for related projects. The support provided by the Central Government of China to designate Macao as a tourism education and training base in the GBA will allow the scope of activities undertaken by the CTIRS to expand over time in line with the development of the GBA.
