Ceylon Hotel School Graduates Association (CHSGA) is set to introduce an MBA with Hospitality Management for its membership, which includes a first-of-its-kind mentorship program to enhance knowledge sharing to the new generation hotel management students. It is one of the key features of CHSGA’s five-year strategic plan to spearhead the Sri Lankan tourism and hospitality industry. CHSGA represents eminent hospitality professionals with a membership of over 1,500 individuals, who hold influential positions both locally and internationally.

 CHSGA will sign a MOU with ANC Education on 18 July at the Hilton Hotel, to offer University of West London (UWL) MBA with Hospitality Management which is one of the best in the world for its members. The University of West London is a Top 50 UK University (Guardian League Table 2019), No. 04 University in London and it is a recognised international University by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Sri Lanka, as listed in Commonwealth Universities Yearbook and International Handbook of Universities.

CHSGA, having realised the growing need for proper grooming of students of hospitality education, and the serious issue of hands-on knowledge sharing by industry giants to these aspiring hoteliers. CHSGA has taken on the task of equipping future leaders through a mentoring program running parallel to the study courses.

To make this vision a reality, students will be exposed to a variety of industry case studies and business concepts to develop the knowledge and competencies needed to take the hospitality industry to the next level of competence. 

ANC Education, the leading transnational education provider in Sri Lanka with over a decade of experience in the education sector is offers this globally recognised MBA with Hospitality Management program which provides an excellent blend of Hospitality Management and Business Administration knowledge to students to contribute to the growth of the hospitality sector in Sri Lanka.

It is vital that customers want to come back and it their experience that determines the longevity and endurance of these enterprises. We are confident that the ANC-UWL world renowned MBA program will help enforce our strategic plan of raising the bar of the industry in terms of quality, service, culture and brand.” 

CHSGA President Samantha Gunarathna stated, “Having identified the industry’s need professionals, we are confident that University of West London MBA with Hospitality Management will provide the right foundation and training to our prospective, talented students and will prove to be a great help towards growth and development of the hospitality and tourism industry.”
