    • The New Paper

      East Asia Institute of Management (EASB)
      Being the best in hospitality


      WILLARD TAN, 23, hopes to create more awareness about hospitality and wine education in Asia.

      He wants to set up his own food & beverage business too so he can provide new experiences for customers.

      To fulfill his dream, he has completed an introductory sommelier course and also got a Level 2 intermediate certificate in wines and spirits.

      He is also pursuing a full-time bachelor degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management from Queen Margaret University (QMU) through distance learning at the East Asia Institute of Management.

      He said: “With the upcoming Integrated Resorts, I believe visitor arrivals will increase. There will definitely be higher demand for graduates of hospitality and tourism management.”

      On why he chose the school, he explained: “According to edupoll.org, it is the best institution for Hospitality & Tourism studies in Singapore. Also, QMU is one of the highest-ranking UK universities available in Singapore.”

      East Asia Institute of Management’s roots can be traced back to 1984 when it first started as a training and consultancy outfit. It soon expanded and became Information Technology and Management (ITM) Associates, and was later restructured as the East Asia School of Business.

      An early recipient of the Singapore Quality Class award from Spring Singapore and the CaseTrust for Education award, the school was renamed East Asia Institute of Management. It offers a wide range of diploma, advanced diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

      Students pursuing a bachelor degree can choose to complete it in one of the school’s 30 partner universities overseas, or complete the final year in the institution itself.

      Prior to enrolling in the school, Willard had contemplated going to the Swiss School of Hotel and Tourism Management in Chur, Switzerland, which also offers the QMU bachelor degree.

      But as pursuing an overseas education costs more, he decided to get a local education instead.
      He said: “I considered a bachelor of science degree in International Tourism & Hospitality Management from a foreign university which is offered at another local private institution, but eventually the QMU programme being offered at East Asia Institute of Management for its better curriculum.”

      The bachelor degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management is a three-year programme, which includes a six-month industrial attachment at the end of the second year. There are also opportunities for students to go on overseas study trips.

      Students will be provided with theoretical and practical knowledge of all aspects of hospitality management, including Integrated Resorts Management, Sustainable Tourism Management and Managing Hospitality Enterprises.

      With a good mix of both management- and hospitality-specialised modules, students will be trained to be creative, competent and committed managers in the relevant industries.

      Willard said: “With the high quality of teaching, I learned the essentials of becoming a holistic manager. I’ve also enhanced fundamental skills like leadership and teamwork which will aid in achieving my goals in life and overcoming any challenges ahead.

      “East Asia Institute of Management has helped to develop my confidence with its coursework-based assessment, and encouraged me to establish a leadership role rather than just be a follower.”
      After getting his degree, Willard hopes to start work in the hospitality industry and gradually pursue his Masters degree with QMU.

      The Balestier campus where Tan is studying is fully equipped to provide a holistic education for up to 6,000 students.

      Learning facilities such as video-conferencing rooms, a postgraduate resource centre and a hospitality training centre, are complemented by sports and recreational facilities like tennis courts, a running track, fitness gym and cricket pitch.

      Besides Hospitality & Tourism Management, East Asia Institute of Management also offers courses in business management, information management and technology, logistics & supply chain management, banking and finance, and accountancy.

      Many avenues for info to choose right foreign varsity

      I REFER to last Saturday's letter by Mr Pavithran Vidyadharan, 'Set up accreditation panel for foreign varsities', suggesting that the Government set up an accreditation agency to screen degrees awarded by foreign universities and colleges.
      There are a few thousand universities and colleges in the world and it would be a mammoth task for anyone to put these institutions through a single accreditation process.

      In the home countries where foreign universities operate, there are already credible accreditation agencies doing a good job of putting their universities through a quality assurance process.

      In the United States, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation is one such agency.

      There are various bodies in Singapore which exist to help parents make the right university choice, depending on which country their child is going to. These include the US Education Information Centre, British Council, IDP Australia, New Zealand High Commission and Canadian Education Centre. They represent the five major destination countries for Singapore students.

      Parents can also check the following websites for more information: Council for Higher Education Accreditation US (www.chea.org); Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education Britain (www.qaa.org.uk); Australian Universities Quality Agency (www.auqa.edu.au), Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (www.aucc.ca) and New Zealand Educated (www.newzealandeducated.com).

      For foreign universities offering degrees in Singapore, parents can consult the Guide to Recognised Universities in Singapore at www.edupoll.org, which features more than 100 foreign universities offering degree programmes in Singapore. These degree programmes are offered in partnership with local universities, polytechnics, private education institutions or through their own locally set- up campuses.

      Going forward, the new Council for Private Education set up by the Ministry of Education is likely to play a key role in screening foreign universities which offer degree programmes in Singapore.

      So, as it is, there are information channels available in Singapore for parents to check if a certain foreign university is bona fide and accredited by a recognised accreditation agency.
