Be the very first


Integrated resort or IR, which comprises amenities that support each other and include a casino gaming component, has become the buzz words in modern hospitality industry. Despite the fact that IR and the gaming-leisure-tourism sector is expanding at a pace never before seen anywhere in Asia and internationally, there is currently no academic institution in Asia that offers a university degree qualifying students in this unique area of study.

Path to Accreditation


As part of the Faculty-wide initiative, all our programmes are currently undergoing the AACSB accreditation process. Our accreditation process started in 2012 and we hope to complete it by the end of 2018. The AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for any business schools. While there are currently more than 16,000 business schools worldwide, only less than 5% earned an AACSB accreditation. For more information about AACSB, please click here.

 

In addition, we are affiliated to PATA (Pacific Asia Travel Association) and Asia-Pacific CHRIE (Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education).
