Last September, Dr. John Fong visited BHI and negotiated about exchange students program and Short-term Study Tour Program with Dr. Gao Songtao, the president of Beijing Hospitality Institute. Finally they signed a cooperation and communication agreement. This time, Dr. John Fong brought detailed information and promotional materials of the exchange program in the United States. 

San Ignacio University maintains a good cooperative relationship with Disneyland in the United States, Disney Cruise Line, the Royal Caribbean International and other well-known companies. BHI students have the chance to enter those companies for a three-month/ six-month paid internship after completing a whole semester’s study and passing the interview.

Visiting the Job Fair

This visit coincided with a job fair. Two guests visited the job fair and communicated with BHI students on the employment. Cesar Cobos, the vice president of San Ignacio University in Peru was struck by the large-scale job fair with so many positions. He thought highly of BHI students and the distinctive curriculum. In talks, he expressed his strong intention to cooperate with Dr. Gao Songtao. Dr. Gao Songtao also welcomes the students from Peru to come to BHI and experience the distinctive curriculum and traditional Chinese culture.
