Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism

Introduction

Established in 1998, the Department of Hospitality was geared towards the enhancement of hospitality values in our students so that they will, in turn , be instrumental in making a difference in the fast-growing tourism and hospitality industry in Malaysia and Southeast Asia.  Elevated to the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism in 2004, the department continues in its commitment to this philosophy, which comes directly from our vision and mission, directing all our energies in producing hospitality graduates of calibre and potential through educational and vocational work force development.  The Faculty strive to achieve this by guiding our students to succeed on their own strengths and beliefs; as we help them develop their own unique potential, using competition and team spirit as our vehicle.  The Faculty believe that this will have a profound effect on each and every individual who passes through our hands and will make a difference and benefit the hospitality communities they may serve in.
