Keris College held a media luncheon recently in conjunction with the launch of the college’s latest Bachelor of Business Administration Hospitality Management course. The 3-year course, conducted by Victoria University, Switzerland here in Ipoh, provides students a better exposure to the world of business and prepares them for managerial roles in the hospitality industry.
Executive Officer for Admin and Student Services, Maggie Yee, said all assessments and lecturer accreditations would be monitored by Victoria University. Examination papers would be sent to Switzerland for evaluation. “Keris College is the first in Perak to offer a hospitality degree programme of this kind,” she told reporters.
Upon completion of the course, students have a choice to have their graduation ceremony either in Malaysia, Switzerland or Hong Kong. With an enrollment rate of almost 200 students annually, Keris College targets 20 students for the January intake. For Keris College diploma holders the fee is RM16,800 while those from other colleges, the amount is RM18,800.
Members of the press were later treated to lunch prepared by first-year-hospitality students at the Keris Coffee House. For details call Keris College at 05 241 6666.
