This month saw the official launch of Bond University’s School of Hotel, Resort and Tourism Management, where we were proud to announce Marriott International as our inaugural partner.
The partnership sees Marriott join other high-profile organisations that are collaborating with Bond to deliver high quality, industry relevant programs to our students.
The Mirvac School of Sustainable Development and the Macquarie Bank Trading Room are other examples of where we have developed mutually beneficial partnerships with business.
Under such agreements, our students benefit from a curriculum that has been designed in collaboration with industry leaders, work placement opportunities, and a foot in the door when it comes to potential full-time employment on graduating.
Our industry partners, on the other hand, are benefiting from a long-term investment in the next generation of students who will develop a skills set aligned with their organisation’s demands and bring an understanding of the latest industry information and trends to the workplace.
Further to this, the affiliation they develop with our students while they are studying also provides them with an advantage in the increasingly competitive graduate market.
I am delighted to announce the School of Hotel, Resort and Tourism Management as the latest addition to the Faculty of Business, Technology and Sustainable Development, and look forward to a strong and long partnership with Marriott International.
