To align with the “Culture and Tourism Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area” on nurturing tourism talents, as well as embracing Macau’s Tourism+ strategy, MGM has established a partnership with the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Management of Macau University of Science and Technology (FHTM of MUST) since 2021 to jointly push forward efforts of local talents cultivation. In the first quarter of 2023, we successfully rolled out multiple learning activities, benefitting over 500 tourism and hospitality students who have gained deeper insights into the industry’s operations.


Empower Future Experts on Campus

MGM once again sponsored the second edition of “Three Minute Thesis Competition” (3MT) and the “Seminars by Masters from Tourism Industry” organized by the FHTM of MUST. The 3MT competition was open to all master’s and doctoral students – during which Francis Tan, Vice President of Learning & Talent Management of MGM, was invited to serve as part of the judging panel and share his industry expertise. Besides, Icy Lei, Executive Director of Digital Product Strategy & Data Science of MGM, was invited as the guest speaker at the “Seminars by Masters from Tourism Industry”, sharing MGM’s adoption of innovative technology to create outstanding customer service.


Broaden Horizons with Industry Know-how

To equip students with more practical knowledge, MGM arranged hotel tours for them to our Forbes Travel Guide Five-star rating facilities and services. In addition, MGM Catering & Events team led the students on a tour at the annual “MGM Celebration Open House” exhibition and introduced MGM's versatile and high-end MICE offerings and experiences.


Ben K. Goh, Dean of FHTM of MUST, expressed his gratitude to MGM for bringing in solid support to the youth development of MUST. Looking ahead, the faculty will continue to collaborate with MGM in promoting the high-quality development of tourism education in Macau.
