MPHM-814-01 Hospitality Regional Practices and Standards: Travel ILE Southeast Asia
Spring for 2017-2018
Faculty:
Hospitality is a global business, but it is heavily influenced by the various regions in which it operates. Relationships between guests, associates, and ownership groups vary drastically, and only the most seasoned hospitality professionals can navigate the unwritten rules of this fluid international terrain. As part of the applied international immersion component in the Georgetown MPS-HM program, students have the chance to travel and experience various regions of the world in which hospitality is critically effecting the industry globally. This Intensive Learning Experience (ILE) offers two options: a chance to travel without credit; alternatively, students can opt to travel and complete academic assessments/projects for credit toward their degree.

As a continuation of the HM global travel courses offered each Spring and Fall, the program would like to take advantage of the longer spring break travel period to take students to Southeast Asia to explore and analyze the underpinnings of impeccable service found in Asian hospitality. Nowhere is this better seen than in Bangkok, home to the world's most noted and highest rated hotels. Students will also be able to spend several days in Langkawi, Malaysia, a resort island in the Andaman Sea, where they will also be able to explore the same high-end service required in resort operations.
Credits: 1.5
Prerequisites: None
