In a signing of a memorandum of understanding to formalise the establishment of the training facilities, Dorsett Hospitality International and IICS sealed a long standing relationship that has opened doors of opportunity for IICS’s hospitality programme students.
On hand to sign the agreement, which was witnessed by Nadia Monira Bte Mohamed Taib, Assistant Secretary, Industrial Development Division, Ministry of Tourism and Culture, were Yang Berbahagia Datin Jasmine Abdullah Heng, Vice Chairman of Dorsett Hospitality International, and Amit Sevak, CEO of INTI.
Apart from providing training equipment for the Front Office and Guestroom ‘simulation rooms’ at IICS, Dorsett Hospitality International will also share the group’s Standard Operating Procedure Manual with hospitality students to enhance their knowledge and sharpen their skills. This will enable them to meet industry standards and provide excellent services that will measure up to the expectations of international travellers when they embark on a career in hospitality in the future.
“The collaboration with Dorsett Hospitality International will elevate the standard of INTI’s hospitality programmes and raise the bar for hospitality education, training and development. It will lead to greatly enhanced students’ learning experience and work skills that will prepare them for a career with the best hospitality establishments and these include Dorsett Hospitality International,” said Amit Sevak.
INTI’s Diploma in Hotel Management (DHM) programme is affiliated with Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School (BMIHMS), the number 1 hospitality management school in Asia Pacific and Australia*. The two year course provides a global study perspective and hands-on training opportunities for students as they are guided by some of the world’s leading experts in hospitality.
INTI also offers Chicago’s No.1 programme for preparing students for culinary careers** via Kendall College’s Diploma in Culinary Arts. The 2-year programme offers a focus on practical and entrepreneurship skills in the area of culinary and food service operations, with specialisation in Kitchen & Larder and Patisserie.
Hospitality education at INTI is shaped by an ideal balance of theoretical knowledge and practical training. Students will be trained to develop leadership qualities, confidence and resourcefulness, as well as learn how to analyse, strategise and make quick decisions. They will also gain valuable exposure outside the classroom with 5-star partner establishments.
