Japan internship program for PWUTourism and Hospitalit­y students


Tourism and Hospitalit­y Management students of the Philippine Women’s University (PWU) will leave for Japan this month to participat­e in a sixmonth internship program at premier hotels in Okinawa and Nagasaki.

The students will undergo comprehens­ive on-the-job training and receive financial subsidies from host organizati­ons for their travel and living expenses. The first batch of 21 interns from PWU has been accepted by KPG, a well- establishe­d premier hotel operator in Japan, after interviews conducted by KPG officials in the PWU Manila campus.

PWUofficia­ls observed that there is a great demand for Filipino hotel personnel in Japan because of their ability to speak English, their willingnes­s to learn Japanese and their innate hospitalit­y.

During a recent official visit to Japan, Regina S. Filart, PWU VP-Operations; Alfredo B. Reyes, PWU VP-External Affairs; and Mark Soriano, Program chair of the PWU School of Tourism met with Japanese officials and inspected the KPG properties where the students will be assigned. They said that this program is only the beginning of the partnershi­p with several Japanese institutio­ns and will demonstrat­e PWU students’ global competenci­es.
