TISOH programs bring the industry into the classroom
las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 09, 2012
Supporting its mission to offer professional hospitality education to a worldwide student base, The International School of Hospitality, TISOH, today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Universidad Anahuac Puebla, Mexico. Universidad Anahuac is a major university system in Mexico established in 1964. This alliance allows Anahuac students to take TISOH courses as part of their curricula or for credit within their programs.
The curriculum from The International School of Hospitality includes courses in the disciplines of Conference Management and Event Planning, Catering, Hotel Management and Wedding Coordination. Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, TISOH is known for its practical short-term hospitality certificate and diploma programs taught by industry professionals and offering a full immersion experience through speakers, externships and shadowing opportunities.
School Director Timothy Lam commented on the benefit of this newly formed relationship, “Last year, TISOH was welcomed to join CONPEHT – the Confederation of Pan American Schools in Hotel, Gastronomy and Tourism – as the only US member. Now with the signing of the Anahuac MOU our school’s international outreach is even stronger. We’re very excited to welcome these new students.”
TISOH programs for the international market work in several ways. One option is with 5-week FASTtrack classroom sessions in Las Vegas. Another option is with online learning modules, culminating with a one-to-two week visit to Las Vegas where students take part in discussions with industry leaders, make on-site visits, complete any required portfolios, take their final exams, and participate in graduation ceremonies. “For the second option," Lam explained. “We developed our hybrid model of learning to make it possible for foreign students to earn our certificates and executive diplomas. Being able to learn online and come to Las Vegas to complete these programs gives them the practical education for which we are known.”
This summer international students are expected to join certificate programs in Wedding Coordination & Design and Meeting and Event Catering from June 17 through June 30. In addition, there will be a program during the last week in June for a one-week study with site visits to become American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute Certified Restaurant Managers.
The International School of Hospitality (TISOH) was founded in 2005 by professors from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The mission of the school is to offer practical, short-term hospitality training programs developed for industry by industry. Along with class instruction, most courses include site visits and working externships. The school curriculum includes conference management and event planning, meeting & event catering, event design & production, hospitality leadership and supervision, wedding coordination and design, the art of concierge, art of food and beverage, hotel operations and hospitality human resources.
