Invaluable insights offered by entrepreneurs and practitioners at IFT’s entrepreneurship courses 27/12/2018

The Institute for Tourism Studies has integrated entrepreneurship courses since 2015 into its bachelor degree programmes, namely Culinary Arts Management, Heritage Management, Hotel Management, Tourism Business Management, Tourism Event Management and Tourism Retail and Marketing Management. This fits the agenda set by the Macao SAR Government to stimulate the diversification of local economy as well as encourage innovation via entrepreneurship. The course instructor Dr. Fernando Lourenço developed the entrepreneurship courses aiming to expand the career perspectives of students and motivate them to start their own businesses. Dr. Lourenço also arranged guest talks and experience sharing by government officials, entrepreneurs and industry practitioners, namely Mr. Tai Kin Ip, Director of the Macao Economic Services (DSE), Mr. Gregory Kuong of Macao New Chinese Youth Association, Mr. Timonthy Leong of General Association of Chinese Students of Macau, Mr. Gary Chao of Bank of China and architect Mr. André Ritchie.
