Recently, GEG gave students from the Lui Che Woo College of the University of Macau (“UM”) and the Faculty of International Tourism and Management of City University of Macau (“CityU”) a tour of its properties. Through visiting various leisure and entertainment facilities in GEG’s properties, participants gained additional insight into the daily operations and developments of large-scale integrated resorts. Meanwhile, GEG also invited students from UM’s Department of International Integrated Resort Management for a visit to GEG’s F&B operation and arranged for students to meet with representatives from GEG’s F&B Department. During an interactive sharing session, GEG’s F&B representatives shared their experiences and outlook on the industry in hopes of deepening the students’ understanding of the development prospects and inspiring them to plan their future career paths.

Earlier, Professor Yip Ming Chuen, College Master of Lui Che Woo College, Professor Chuang Wang, Dean of Faculty of Education of UM, and students; and Assistant Professor Cindy Wang, the Program Coordinator of the Faculty of International Tourism and Management of City U and students were respectively invited to visit Galaxy Macau™ and Broadway Macau™. The visit started at the Diamond Lobby at Galaxy Macau, where participants were shown GEG’s philosophy and its impressive decade-long achievements at Galaxy Macau’s spectacular 10 years at the anniversary-themed installation. Afterwards, GEG representatives led the participants on a guided tour of GEG’s banquet facilities and hospitality services at the various hotels at Galaxy Macau. In addition, they also visited one of Galaxy Macau’s major attractions – the Grand Resort Deck along with the integrated resorts’ different leisure facilities. Following the visit at Galaxy Macau, the participants were taken to the Broadway Food Street at Broadway Macau to learn how the food street became one of GEG’s many successful projects that fosters the development of local SMEs and creates win-win outcomes for all parties involved. Meanwhile, to enrich the students’ knowledge of Macau’s “Tourism + MICE” trends, GEG representatives introduced the students to the company’s new development projects in Cotai, including the Galaxy International Convention Center, which offers 40,000 square meters of MICE space; the 16,000-seat Galaxy Arena; Andaz Macau and Raffles at Galaxy Macau. 

To equip students with F&B related knowledge, GEG took the students majoring in International Integrated Resort Management of UM to several of its award-winning restaurants, including Lai Heen, which received one Michelin star again this year and the Terrazza Italian Restaurant, which was nominated for the Black Pearl Restaurant Guide 2021. As well, GEG organized an interactive session for students to meet with representatives from GEG’s F&B Department to learn from them modern-day restaurant management concepts and to explore the different career opportunities offered by the F&B industry. Besides, the GEG representatives also shared their career experiences with the students and helped them gain a more comprehensive understanding of the daily operation needs and service expectations of world-class F&B and integrated resort facilities so as to inspire them to further explore their opportunities in the F&B management industry. 

Over the years, GEG has been working closely with the local universities and institutions on nurturing students and providing them with different opportunities to build and explore their career interests in Macau’s integrated resort industry.
