‘’Our intention is to support primarily students from Boka Bay area, with focus on Herceg Novi. Still, the Scholarship Program is open for students from whole Montenegro. We are very proud of the first generation of students that have enrolled the studies last year and already around 30 of them are involved in international practice.’’, stated Adrijana Husic, Corporate Communications and CSR Manager.
Establishment of the International Hospitality and Management of the Faculty of Culture and Tourism of the University of Donja Gorica is beneficial to the whole tourism industry as it provides a long term investment into education and supports development of human resources. Furthermore, this prestigious program seeks to assist educational and hospitality development in Montenegro, by preparing the next generation to build their own future in the international tourism and hospitality industry.
‘’One of the most important differentiators when talking about these studies is practical work done beside lectures and exams. Throughout the studies, students learn how to implement acquired theoretical knowledge into practice. Besides, practice that is done in well-known hospitality institutions in Montenegro, our students will go to USA, Spain, Estonia and Greece and will gain additional knowledge and skills needed in high-end hospitality.’’, added Husic.
Established partnership between Azmont Investments, UDG and Vatel in 2016, has brought Vatel international training based on balance between theory and practice to Montenegro.
