Tourism and hospitality is currently the most dynamic industry. Unfortunately, the main problem of the industry is the low level of services due to unqualified staff. Today, in a large number of hospitality facilities, the need for qualified professional will only increase.
This memorandum is designed to implement a number of areas: the development of dual education and consulting services in the field of hospitality, training based on joint educational programs, transfer of experience from the top country in the field of hospitality, such as Switzerland.
ABU is launching a new educational program "Management in tourism and hospitality", cooperation with the Hospitality Training Center in Semey. Students will be able not only to gain the necessary knowledge in hospitality, but also to start working while studying at ABU - through the experience of professional dual training.
