Joining Hospitality Management Program at Institut Bisnis IT&B Medan has given me a great learning experience. We were taught the skills that are required in hospitality industry, such as how to behave and dress professionally, how to develop a memorable communication with guests, and how to deliver excellent and consistent service to guests. My studies have helped me to not only gain theoretical, but also practical skills. The curriculum has also included 6 month internship, which gives us the opportunity to apply our knowledge and skills, as well as to experience the real work situation. I personally feel proud to have completed my internship in the Room Division at the Ritz Carlton Langkawi.
During the internship, I was able to build my confidence and communicate well with the guests.
I have been studying at Institut Bisnis IT&B Medan for 3 years, majoring in Hospitality Management. I have gained valuable knowledge, skills and experiences throughout the course. The lecturers at Institut Bisnis IT&B Medan are professional and knowledgeable in their fields. They deliver every subject theoretically and practically, hence we can apply all the knowledge and skills during internship. I am very grateful that the curriculum has helped me to prepare for my internship.
I still can’t believe that I have completed my internship at a five star hotel in Bali. Thank you for the support!
IT&B Campus’ Hospitality Program does not only teach me about hospitality industry or being a hotelier, but also prepares me to become professional in every aspect of my life, such as the way I talk, behave and groom myself. IT&B also gives me opportunity to go through an internship program for 6 months, so that we can implement what we have learnt, upgrade our skills and gain more experience in the real hospitality industry. I’m grateful that IT&B provides the opportunity for me to do my internship in Human Resource Department at The Ritz-Carlton, Langkawi. I’m also thankful for all the professional and experienced lecturers who had motivated and prepared me very well, thus I was able to complete my internship. My internship did not only allow me to learn about the real hospitality industry, but also to improve my interpersonal skills and build my confidence in handling events and engaging with both guests and fellow associates.
I joined IT&B Campus’ Hospitality Management Program when I was 22 years old. Initially, I thought that university was not important, but then I finally realized that it is necessary to continue my education. In the beginning, I was actually unconfident because of my age and my poor English, but apparently the lecturers and the curriculum had helped me in improving my language skills. I chose the Culinary concentration during my last semester in the campus and I learned a lot of cooking skills through this course. I even participated twice in cooking competitions and I had won first prize at Santika Hotel and second prize at campus. I have gained a lot of knowledge and skills from my course here at IT&B Campus. Lastly, I would like to remind my fellow friends that going to university is one important step in our life and it is never too late for us to study and learn something new.
