WILLEMSTAD - At the beginning of the year, Curaçao Hospitality and Tourism Association (CHATA) announced that the focus this year will be “investing in our people”. With many projects being put on hold due to the global pandemic, the focus has shifted to economic recovery, but CHATA continues to find ways to invest in our people as we are the ones who lift the economy.
The University of Curaçao (UOC) has recognized the demand for building professionals in the hospitality and tourism sector. Therefore, UOC is starting this academic year with a new bachelor’s program titled “International Hospitality and Tourism Management” (IH&TM). This program will run for 4 years and includes different modules on Food and Beverage Management, Creative Designing, Hospitality Tourism Law, Human Resources Management, Hotel Management, and more.
CHATA wants to contribute to the journey of the future professionals in the industry. In order to do this, CHATA will be giving away a free laptop to one of the students in the program to aid their studies. To participate and get the chance to win the laptop, CHATA wants to hear from you what your motivation was behind choosing the IH&TM program. In order to be eligible for the laptop, you must register for the bachelor’s program and write a motivational letter in English, explaining why you deserve to win the laptop and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure the document title includes you full name and last name. You must also film a one-minute video in Papiamentu explaining why you chose a future in Hospitality and Tourism and upload it to your Facebook account using #NosTurismo, and the sure the post is public.
Complete all of the abovementioned requirements by Sunday, August 16, 2020. For more information, visit CHATA’s Facebook page or call 465 1005. For more information on the bachelor’s program, visit the University of Curaçao’s Facebook page or their website www.uoc.cw.
