Stenden University of Applied Sciences-Qatar (SUAS-Q) is the only institution accredited by The International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE) to be number one in five categories, according to a benchmarking rating report.
SUAS-Q topped for language support, host culture, social activities, Internet access, and accommodation cost and quality in the report prepared by THE-ICE, according to a statement issued yesterday.
THE-ICE is a global quality assurance agency and a worldwide network of leading quality tourism, hospitality, events and culinary arts institutions.
The report was based on the results, analysed by the UK-based agency i-graduate and from the 2018 student satisfaction survey completed by students from all THE-ICE accredited institutions and a global group of other participating peer universities.
The Benchmarking Rating Report will help SUAS-Q to support its continuous quality improvement and strategic planning and also will provide the opportunity of benchmarking itself against many other international institutions.
It was almost two years ago that SUAS-Q got full accreditation THE-ICE for the Bachelor in Tourism Management, and the Bachelor in International Hospitality Management.
Dr Ivan Ninov, executive dean of SUAS-Q commented: “We are very pleased with the results of latest THE-ICE benchmarking report, in which Stenden Qatar has been compared to some of the best higher education institutions in the field of hospitality and tourism education, and other peer universities across the globe. Our successful performance in this global benchmarking study is a validation of our continuous efforts on supporting our students and enhancing their overall educational experience. The best and most effective measure of our quality as a university is the success of our graduates, and therefore we are fully focused on delivering a high-quality educational product and preparing graduates who can successfully deal with the challenges of today’s complex and dynamic business environment”.
