15M-worth of hot and cold laboratory equipment were granted by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to University of Antique (UA) with the aim to produce quality and globally competitive graduates for the tourism and hospitality industry.
The BS in Hospitality Management program of the College of Business and Accountancy (CBA) is the central beneficiary of the said project.
Prof. Catherine Viesca said that it is high time that the laboratory is upgraded to provide students with first-hand experience of what and how to use a state-of-the-art kitchen laboratory facility. With the growing number of students in the program, the well-equipped laboratory will help them develop the necessary competencies needed in applying for a job.
CHED’s grant reinforces UA’s pursuit of providing high quality instruction, extension, and research. /IAP
