BER­JAYA Univer­sity Col­lege of Hos­pi­tal­ity (BER­JAYA UCH) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with JEI Univer­sity and Shingu Col­lege of South Korea re­cently hosted a joint “Korean Fair” din­ner em­ploy­ing the unique BER­JAYA Im­mer­sion Method­ol­ogy where stu­dents are en­gaged through the “learn­ing by do­ing” prin­ci­ple.

Four pro­fes­sors from JEI Univer­sity flew in for the event to guide the stu­dents with the ar­range­ments.

The buf­fet din­ner was made pos­si­ble through the hard work of JEI stu­dents work­ing side by side with the School of Culi­nary Arts, headed by WACS Global Mas­ter Chef Jochen Kern. Ser­vice was pro­vided by BER­JAYA UCH School of Hos­pi­tal­ity, headed by Na­jmi Ab­dul­lah and Kit Thong, whose team from the School of Tourism spruced up the place with Korean-in­spired dé­cor and as­sisted stu­dents from Shingu Col­lege mar­ket Korean prod­ucts for the fair.

“As part of our strate­gic po­si­tion­ing, we em­bark on var­i­ous global part­ner­ships, a few of which are with Korean in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing.

“BER­JAYA UCH places in­terns in the Ber­jaya Group of Com­pa­nies and our in­dus­try part­ners at short-term in­dus­try place­ments. Th­ese place­ments are English lan­guage-based
