The Head of School for Tourism and Hospitality at Nanyang, Marcus Lim, says: “Studying tourism in vibrant tourist cities is certainly an advantage and a privilege, providing a real opportunity for students to understand how tourism actually functions and how it is structured vis-a-vis a global context.
“Tourism encompasses a range of other sub-industries, such as hospitality, transport, entertainment, leisure, sports, retail and events, as well as the cultural, arts and heritage industries.”
Nanyang’s tourism programmes emphasise the value of advancing students’ soft skills and IT competencies.
It provides both Amadeus and Opera software courses that are internationally acclaimed software operating systems and are currently used by the best hotels and travel agencies of the world.
The internship programme also helps students establish a close relationship with the industry and develop supplementary skills through their work experience.
Consequently, the tourism programme involves learning activities such as site visits and encourages learning “beyond the classroom”.
Academic director Yeh Choy Yan adds: “Because tourism and travel are adventurous activities, the study of tourism is also exciting and fascinating.
