Our Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management (DHTM) students did NYP proud once again by gaining the Special Recognition Award at the 3rd AFECA (Asian Federation of Exhibition and Convention Associations) Asia MICE Youth Challenge 2017.
They competed amongst universities and higher learning institutions from Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand. They had to present a proposal for an innovative MICE event business plan to convince the judges that their country was the ideal MICE destination in Asia.
The team of four DHTM students “Team ENVision” saw an opportunity to propose a unique event proposal: Sinology – Innovation for Silver Generation. This involved promoting Singapore as the best MICE destination to host the event, showcasing innovative solutions to meet the Silver Generation’s needs.
Since SBM signed a memorandum of understanding with Tama University in 2011, friendly ties have been preserved through cultural exchange between the students of the two institutions.
This September, 37 SBM students embarked on a 9-day study trip at the university, taking lessons from basic Japanese and Sun Tzu Art of War, to Japanese pop culture and geography. Students also experienced a simulated earthquake on a Ritcher scale of 8 at the Disaster Prevention Centre in Yokohama.
While students initially encountered language barriers when interacting with the Japanese students, the basic Japanese crash course helped them overcome the barriers. “I love conversing with them and I have made many new friends from Tama University!” said one SBM student, Nur Isyraf Aqil Bin Mohammad Nazri.
