Serv­ing up re­ward­ing ca­reers

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR EDUCATION FAIR -

SCHOOL leavers ea­ger to pur­sue a ca­reer in food and bev­er­age man­age­ment can get on the right path with DISTED Col­lege’s Diploma in Food and Bev­er­age Man­age­ment ( DFBM).

The DFBM, the lat­est diploma in DISTED’s sta­ble of pro­gramme of­fer­ings, is a two- year four- month pro­gramme de­signed to equip stu­dents with ap­pli­ca­ble knowl­edge and skills in food ser­vice and culi­nary arts.

Stu­dents will also gain tech­ni­cal and man­age­ment skills that pre­pare them for ca­reers in the global food and bev­er­age ( F& B) in­dus­try.

DISTED’s School of Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment head Susie Khoo said the pro­gramme would ad­dress the grow­ing need for more tal­ented pro­fes­sion­als in the thriv­ing F& B sec­tor.

“We aim to pro­duce stu­dents who are able to op­er­ate and man­age a food and bev­er­age busi­ness suc­cess­fully and prof­itably,” she stressed.

Stu­dents will be ex­posed to key in­dus­try trends re­lated to culi­nary and busi­ness man­age­ment through a com­bi­na­tion of the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal learn­ing.

The first five stu­dents who en­rol for the pro­gramme will en­joy a fee re­bate worth up to RM3,680.

A fee waiver of RM1,000 will also be of­fered to other stu­dents who sign up for the pro­gramme.

Apart from the DFBM, stu­dents keen in the hos­pi­tal­ity and ser­vices in­dus­try can also con­sider the Diploma in Hos­pi­tal­ity Busi­ness Man­age­ment, a pro­gramme that cov­ers com­pre­hen­sive knowl­edge and un­der­stand­ing of busi­ness man­age­ment from the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try point of view.

The School of Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment is lo­cated at the Wawasan city cam­pus in the heart of Ge­orge Town, Pe­nang.

It boasts in­dus­try- stan­dard food pro­duc­tion and pas­try kitchens, bak­ery, restau­rant, demo kitchen and other learn­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

The col­lege also de­liv­ers five other diploma pro­grammes in busi­ness, ac­count­ing, and com­put­ing which award stu­dents with the BTEC Higher Na­tional Diploma ( BTEC HND) in ad­di­tion to a DISTED diploma.

For stu­dents look­ing to progress to de­gree stud­ies, DISTED of­fers seven bach­e­lor’s hon­our de­grees con­ferred by Stafford­shire Univer­sity, one of UK’s lead­ing mod­ern univer­si­ties.

Th­ese pro­grammes equip stu­dents with in­dus­try- rel­e­vant knowl­edge and skills to make them highly em­ploy­able and sought af­ter.

An­other col­lab­o­ra­tive de­gree avail­able at DISTED is the Bach­e­lor of Psy­chol­ogy ( Hons), de­liv­ered in col­lab­o­ra­tion with HELP Univer­sity.

The col­lege is a cer­ti­fied gold learn­ing part­ner for the As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants ( ACCA) pro­fes­sional pro­gramme.

The up­com­ing in­take dates are March 21 for all diploma and Stafford­shire Univer­sity de­gree pro­grammes, May 23 for the Bach­e­lor of Psy­chol­ogy ( Hons) and July 4 for ACCA.

Stu­dents who sign up early for all other pro­grammes at DISTED will stand to en­joy early bird re­bates and other pro­mo­tional of­fers as well, sub­ject to terms and con­di­tions.

DISTED will be hav­ing its Info Day and Open Day events on March 5- 6, 12- 13 and 19- 20 be­sides par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Star Education Fair.
