Adopting a holistic approach towards Macau, you’ll find there is no sector that plays a more important role than the hotels, catering, tourism and entertainment sector does in developing the economy, securing the employment and enhancing quality of life for residents in Macau. With the school motto “Sincerity in Seeking Knowledge and Improvement of Ability and Quality” in mind, the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Management (FHTM) at Macau University of Science and Technology offers high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs in the fields of hospitality and tourism management. Our outstanding undergraduate programs include International Tourism Management, Hotel Management, and Food and Beverage Management. The Master’s Degree Program in International Tourism Management includes two areas of specialization: Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) and Event Management, and Hotel Management. The Doctor of Philosophy in Tourism Management aims to train professionals with high academic standards. As Macau has become one of the world’s prime tourism centers, and was officially designated a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy in 2017, many opportunities for growth await you here.
The Faculty thinks globally and is a world-class institution. After gaining the “TedQual” (Tourism Education Quality) certification from the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in 2007, in 2017, the Faculty was delighted to receive the renewal of the UNWTO TedQual Certification for a maximum time period of 4 years (from 2017 to 2021). In addition, the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Management ranked among top 100 in the Shanghai Ranking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects in 2018 and is a proud member of PATA (Pacific Asia Travel Association) and CHRIE (Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education).
The Faculty has actively participated in international exchange programs and research projects in countries like United States, Japan, Switzerland, South Korea, New Zealand, etc.. In the meanwhile, it has been involved in various study-abroad programs including the internship in the Disney World in the United States. We are promoting experiential learning by offering a wide array of practice-oriented courses, services and active learning strategies.
We have the leading teaching restaurant, the Seasons, and guest house operated by our students. What’s more, the four newly built and comprehensively equipped culinary laboratories which were put into operation in September 2018 provide our students the best possible learning and practicing environment by simulating their future work environment. The laboratories offer both hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge of culinary arts and hotel and restaurant management. Over the years, the Faculty has nurtured nearly 5,000 graduates who have devoted themselves to the catering, hotels and tourism sector, and who are now becoming industrial elites. The Faculty has cultivated for Macau a new generation of talents with multiple skills, contributing to Macau’s positioning as a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure.
The Faculty boasts a team of highly professional, scholastic and internationalized teaching staff, coming from all over the world including Australia, Canada, South Korea, the Philippines, Ghana, Malaysia, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. With their deep academic attainments, rich teaching experience, a sense of professional dedication, constant attention to and care for the students, and ability to use English as a medium of instruction, our teachers fit perfectly with the internationalized teaching and learning environments promised by the Faculty.
Our students learn to balance their academic life with activities outside the classroom, get to broaden their horizons, enrich their life experiences, and make lifelong friends, and in the end will find their time here well spent, college life colorful and campus experiences rewarding.
