Tourism Students Gain Hands-On Experience at MATTA Fair

We are pleased to share that our Tourism Management students gained another hands-on industry experience in the field of retail travel operations, as they participated at the Malaysian Association of Tour & Travel Agents (MATTA) Fair, which was organised in the second week of March at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Kuala Lumpur.

Our students were attached to MP Travel and Tour Sdn Bhd and Sipadan Dive Centre Sdn Bhd as they enhance their communication skills while addressing the available tour packages to visitors at the booths. This 3-day industrial attachment encouraged the students to take advantages of opportunities available for them, in order to serve the tourism industry to their best. 


We believe that by participating in industrial attachments like this, students will be able to gain more real-world knowledge as a tourism industry professional; in which such experiences will prepare them for upcoming challenges in the industry by expanding their perspectives on the importance of knowledge, skills and attitude outside classrooms.
