Conquering the hospitality industry

Five students from the Department of Hospitality and Tourism at NUST attended this year’s Future Leaders Forum held in Johannesburg, South Africa. Sixty future leaders from reputable institutions across the SADC region attended the event.

This year’s event was organised by the South Africa National Convention Bureau, in conjunction IMEX, MPI and MCI, which are all expert companies in the meetings and events organising industry. The students further got the opportunity to compete against other universities’ for a spot in the upcoming International University Challenge in Frankfurt, Germany. The Challenge is aimed at encouraging students to showcase their ideas and talents based on a fictitious event proposal. It gives participants a deeper understanding about what the industry encompasses and to take the next step in their career development.

One of the NUST students, Elina Shimhanda, made it to the final stages of the Challenge. She gave a presentation titled ‘Food of The Future,’ which highlighted the interwoven aspects of the global food industry. “We have learned a lot. I hope to make my peers aware of opportunities like this one, because they are a vital part of enriching our understanding of this dynamic Industry. Exposure is everything,” Shimhanda said excitedly.

Under the Faculty of Management Sciences, the University offers undergraduate degrees in Hospitality Management, Culinary Arts, and Tourism Management.
