Shanghai Second Polytechnic University Queensland College will feature Newmarket International technology solutions for group sales and catering courses to help improve the competitive advantage for students in the hospitality industry. Queensland College is the first university in mainland China to strategically implement Newmarket solutions for sales and catering experience in an educational program.
Queensland College was established under a co-education agreement signed in 1999 between the Shanghai and Queensland governments. By taking advantage of TAFE from Australia, Queensland College built a professional curriculum that enables students to improve their abilities and meet industry requirements. Students are expected to have bilingual proficiency and must demonstrate both professional and business skills. There are currently more than 800 students enrolled, studying under six diploma programs.
"Hospitality technology is always evolving, so education at the college has to change accordingly to enable students to learn not only basic theoretical knowledge but also practical skills," said Raymond Duanmu, director of the Hotel Management Department at Queensland College. "By integrating Newmarket solutions into our daily course curriculum, we can provide a more powerful 'hands on' education that will bring more qualified talent to the industry."
