Held at Siloso Beach Sentosa, students from the Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management (DHTM) experienced what it took to keep a music festival running. At the inaugural 2-day Legacy Festival 2019, they welcomed the party-goers at the registration/check-in counters by issuing RFID wrist tags, managing the massive crowd at the queuing line, as well as the topping up of dollar value to RFID wrist tags for eager party-goers. It was not all work and no play, students also had the chance to chill out and enjoyed the various acts at the festival. Despite the late night, the event organiser gave a thumbs-up to the positive working attitude, smiley faces put on by the students throughout their practicum, their enthusiasm and initiative throughout.
Our Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management (DHTM) students have also emerged top on several occasions at the annual AFECA (Asian Federation of Exhibition and Convention Associations) Asia MICE Youth Challenge. The competition pits teams from universities and institutions of higher learning throughout Asia against each other to present the best proposal for an innovative MICE event business plan.
The students from Tama University and DHTM have had the chance to foster intercultural ties since 2011 when a memorandum of understanding was signed between Tama University and SBM. DHTM students get a chance to embark on a two-week study trip at the Tama University annually, while taking lessons and immersing themselves in Japanese culture.
Our students initially encountered language barriers when interacting with their Japanese counterparts, the basic Japanese crash course helped them overcome these barriers. “I love conversing with (the Japanese students) and I have made many new friends from Tama University!” said one SBM student, Nur Isyraf Aqil Bin Mohammad Nazri.
