Students from the Bachelor of International Hospitality Management (BIHM), School of Hospitality, Tourism and Events (SHTE) never run out of opportunities to be embraced by hospitality industry experts. One such avenue is our exclusive Future General Manager Programme (GeM), the home-grown fast-track career pathways that gives access for the BIHM students to various leading international hotel brands.
Hilton, a long-standing industry partner with SHTE for its GeM programmes recently adopted our students under their brand to train, nurture and make them ready for their careers. Each adopted student was appointed a mentor who is part of the Hilton leadership team not only to groom the students but also to guide them throughout their learning journey with Hilton and their bachelor’s degree programme at Taylor’s.
The adopted BIHM students were welcomed by Ms. Angela Pecoraro, General Manager Hilton Kuala Lumpur, accompanied by her leadership team and the student mentors that included Ms. Kristine Chan, Hotel Manager; Mr. Justin, Director of Food and Beverages (F&B); Mr. Vignes, Manager of Food and Beverages (F&B); Ms. Chloe See, Human Resources Manager and Chef. Kazi Hussain, Executive Chef.
The students were also introduced to the Hilton GeM programme alumni Mr. Ethan, who is currently the Sales Executive at Hilton Kuala Lumpur shared his experience on this insightful journey. Indeed, an expedition to prepare future proof hospitality graduates groomed by industry experts.
