In a bid to enrich the international learning experience for students of the College of Hospitality and Institutional Management (CHIM) of Our Lady of Fatima University, CHIM officials embarked on actual site visits of hotels in Thailand.
Opening up a fresh Cultural Exchange Program for SY 2017-2017, CHIM’s Dean Ignacio Cordova, Jr. and Tourism SWEP Coordinator Princess Jullah P. Petallana evaluated Thai companies that are potential internship partners. Accompanying them were Dionnabelle Velasco, Area Manager- Davao Region of United Towers of the Philippines (CHIM’s partner-agency), and Michael Roberge, CEO/ Director/ Responsible Officer 4-My-Future of the Thailand-based RM Consulting Group.
The international exchange program enriches student-participants by exposing them to different cultures; thus paving the way to a keener awareness and understanding of other cultural orientations. Further, the student is given the experience of independent living in a foreign country. All these better prepare the student in becoming globally-competitive as one should be in the hospitality and travel industries.
During the visit on April 26-28, 2017, Dr. Cordova and Ms. Petallana inspected possible accommodations for the students, and visited a few 5-star hotels and resorts in Bangkok like: Dream Hotel Bangkok, Hansar Hotel Bangkok, Bandara Suite Silom, Anantara and AVAN Riverside and the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park.
