WE Engage: Industry partners to bringing learning beyond the classroom walls

Our commitment in providing our DHTM students to an innovative learning environment through multiple site visits to esteemed hotels and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) venues. The close collaboration with our industry partners brings learning beyond the classroom walls, as the students witness first hand of hospitality management. Our dedication to industry relevance aims to bridge the crucial link between theoretical knowledge and practical application.

WE Experience: Overseas internship experience, featuring Kai Guat with Ritz Carlton Hong Kong

Ranging from local to overseas experiences, hotel accommodation to event management companies, internship is never mundane with us. Our DHTM students will be spoilt for choices as they embark on their work journey.

Let’s hear from Kai Guat, “Overseas internship experience with Ritz Carlton Hong Kong had been a wonderful learning opportunity, the hotel had placed the trust and given us the empowerment to handle guests. With a positive and embracing working culture, it promotes lateral service opportunities, allow me to have hands-on experiences across other departments.

My advice for juniors starting their internship with front office: Don't just ‘study’ during BM4705, Hotel Operations. The module gave us the competitive advantage in using Opera, property management system. Take the opportunity and learn to use the hotkeys, it will shorten the registration process, giving us more time to engage with the guest to create a more enjoyable experience!”

WE Shine: MICE Youth Challenge

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. AFECA 2023 was held in Bangkok, Thailand and our DHTM students had participated and were presented with the special recognition award!

WE Travel: Annual Tama University Study Trip

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 had so much fun interacting with the students from TAMA University! The trip also gave me an insight into the Japanese culture and their society’s perseverance in times of natural disaster.” said one DHTM student, Tong Ee Son.
