A reputation for excellence in hospitality higher education and the cultural diversity of the student body attracted International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) Vietnamese student Nhat Minh Hoang to study his postgraduate degree in Australia.
Following a Duy Tan University Hospitality Administration / Management bachelor degree achieved in Vietnam, Nhat will graduate with an ICMS Master of Management (Tourism and Hospitality) in 2023.
“I chose ICMS because of the cultural diversity and ICMS’ reputation for excellent education in the hospitality industry,” Nhat said.
Not only has ICMS consistently produced graduates who excel in the hospitality industry, but the higher education institute was ranked #1 for Event Management and Hospitality Management in Australia (based on graduate employability)*. It was also ranked #1 for Bachelor of Event Management and Bachelor of Hospitality Management in Australia (based on longest continuous industry placement, student professionalism, work ready students and industry training customer care).*
With over 50 nationalities represented in ICMS’ student community, Nhat’s appreciation of cultural diversity led him to study at the career-focused higher education institute.
With campuses located in Northern Beaches, Sydney, NSW, and in the city of Sydney, choosing to study away from his home country of Vietnam was made easier by the opportunity to meet and mingle with international and domestic students on campus.
“Meeting and talking to many people from many cultures and nations teaches me a lot of things in both my student experience and personal life,” he said.
While Nhat has not yet started his 600 hours of ICMS Work Integrated Learning (WIL) industry training – where each student is placed in an internship within the industry in which they will one day make a career – he has, since February 2022, been working at the Sydney Harbour Marriot Hotel as a Food and Beverage Associate.
When Nhat is placed by the WIL team in his ICMS degree-related internship, it could be with any one of over 1000 industry partners aligned with ICMS.
Hospitality-focused industry partners include Marriott International, the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, Hilton Hotels and Resorts, Meriton Suites, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, El Camino Cantina and Sheraton Grand among others.
