Blue Mountain’s Expansion Has Positive Impact on INTI Students

November 2, 2011

Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS) is offering more study options through its link with INTI International College Subang’s School of Hospitality, which has received favourable comparison with the No 1 hospitality management school in Australasia/Pacific*.


“I was very impressed with INTI’s hospitality school where the standard is as good as anything we have in Australia,” said Guy Bentley, CEO of BMIHMS, who extended a welcome to INTI students to study at BMIHMS’s new Sydney campus. “The positive attitude of INTI students combined with the passion of the teaching staff can only lead to their success.”

BMIHMS – considered the best school in Australasia/Pacific for preparing students for an international career in hospitality management – is also offering new postgraduate programmes.


“The Graduate Certificate and Master of International Hotel Management programmes fill a much needed industry management education gap, providing a pathway for INTI students to join the exciting world of hospitality whilst recognizing their previous studies and experience from other industries. The Master of International Hotel Management programme can be completed in 2 years with full time study whilst option for part time study is also available,” said Bentley.


Interviewed during his first visit to INTI and Malaysia, Bentley is no stranger to the world of hospitality. He was presented with a Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award at the Accommodation Association of Australia’s recent 2011 National Accommodation Industry Awards for Excellence. His involvement with the tourism industry exceeds 30 years having commenced in the UK in the 1970’s eventually leading to his current role at BMIHMS.

Bentley was clearly impressed with INTI’s School of Hospitality in Subang.

Expertise in hospitality education from BMIHMS has been extended to Malaysia through joint offering of the Diploma in Hotel Management programme with INTI. Graduates of the programme will receive dual awards: the Diploma in Hotel Management awarded by INTI and an International Diploma in Hotel Management awarded by BMIHMS. This two-and-a-half year course provides a global study perspective and hands-on training opportunities for students as they will be guided by some of the world’s leading experts in this area.


Students benefit not only from INTI’s 25 years of experience and strong track-record, but also gain from the global synergy and resources that Laureate International Universities provides. INTI is part of Laureate International Universities, the world’s largest private education network with a presence in 28 countries, with more than 60 accredited campus-based and online universities and 130 campuses, serving over 650,000 students globally.
