The study plan embodies the hospitality mindset and attitude values where technical education needs to incorporate the soft skill components of the business, management, and leadership in addition to practice (hands-on) on campus and outside the Academy, whereby students, in their third semester, train for five months on operating kitchens in 5-star hotels, so as to implement what they have learned of culinary arts. In the sixth semester, students will be training in all departments within a 5-star hotel for another five months as well to work closely with direct managers and directors in a supervisory level.
It is predicted between 2021 and 2025 that there will be a need of over 16,000 employees at all levels in the hospitality sector which entails the need of graduating more than 3,000 competencies every year.
