In this interview, Julia Caellas Foix, 4th-year students of the UADE (Universidad Argentina de la Empresa) in Buenos Aires, describes her experience at the UADE (Universidad Argentina de la Empresa) in Buenos Airesduring her time studying abroad.
The UADE is one of 25 universities HTSI collaborates with for student and docent exchange, training and research on the highest levels.
What was your time in Buenos Aires like?
It was great. I’d read about the country, but what I found when I got there was nothing like I expected. At first it was all a bit chaotic because things generally move much more slowly there, but people are also much friendlier and welcoming than they are here. We got used to it right away.
Training the leaders of the future to have a more inclusive vision and to design hotels that are more accessible for families with children with autism is the goal of the “Tourism for all” course created by HTSI.
An initiative of the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi and Hotel AC Victoria Suite (Marriott Hotels) designed to help families travelling with autistic children, the “Tourism for all” course is part of the Bachelor Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management. It uses a new methodology developed in collaboration with ESADE’s Pedagogical Innovation Institute. Mónica Cerdán and Daniela Freund, lecturers and researchers in HTSI, are responsible for this subject.Read more
With a whole range of activities, the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (URL) is welcoming incoming students who will take part in different tourism courses from the Bachelor Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management this second semester.
More specifically, it is welcoming 23 students from 9 different countries, including the Netherlands, Argentina, the United States, Japan or Hungary. These students come from partner universities with which HTSI has collaboration agreements, and who help to promote the internationalization of the School: one of our main strategic goals.
Emma Erickson of the University of San Francisco explains: “the reason I decided to come was HTSI’s hospitality program, highly recommended by my university and by two of my friends from San Francisco, who studied here in the past. In fact, coming to Barcelona and HTSI was one of the goals I had when I started studying tourism.”
More than 35 international students from 14 different nationalities will study at the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (HTSI), part of Ramon Llull University, during the 2017-2018 academic year. They come from countries like Ukraine, Belarus, Ecuador, Panama or Brazil, to name a few, and will complete all 4 years of the Bachelor Degree in Tourism and Hotel Management offered at our school. In addition, a total of 19 international students from Italy, the Netherlands, the United States, the United Kingdom, China, Norway, Hungary, France and Germany will participate in exchange programs. This number grows each year.
For all of them, HTSI has organized a series of orientation activities to get to know the facilities, the educational team and the services our School offers students. The “Welcome Days” introduction week will begin on Tuesday, September 5 with an information session, and will last until Friday, September 8. Programmed activities include a tour to get to know the city of Barcelona and its most emblematic spaces.Read more
