World of Hospitality & IMPERIA

Tourism is the largest industry in the world, in Malaysia almost 28 million tourists had visited Malaysia in 2015 (statistic from Tourism Malaysia). New hotels grow like mushrooms; our sister company Sentoria Theme Parks and Resorts Sdn Bhd that own and operate Bukit Gambang Resort City will be opening another three resort cities in Malaysia in Langkawi, Morib and Kuching that are equivalently big as Bukit Gambang Resort City. Jobs demand has never been surplus for this industry, realizing this great opportunity IMPERIA Academy of Tourism (IAT) would like to be part in developing human capital in this industry.

From Industry To Industry…

Our teaching and learning could not be more fun and exciting with a work-based learning. Our students will undergo a hands-on training during first half of mix learning; theory and practical class in our modern and state-of-the-art facilities such as kitchen of 5-star hotel standard. In a second half student will experience a real-life scene of hotel, theme park and resort operations where students learn and attach to the hotel or theme park weekly for them to practice their knowledge and skills attained from the theory class.

This unique approach is made only possible since IMPERIA Academy of Tourism could be the only Academy in Malaysia residing in a hotel, resort or theme park at one place. IAT also committed in an efforts to re-skilling current staffs of Bukit Gambang Resort City aligning to government’s vision for reaching 30% skilled-work force in Malaysia.

The teaching & learning that you never imagine……

Come and join us at IMPERIA Academy of Tourism where we bring the actual industry in the classroom!
