Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) is set to expand its GEG Japan-Macau Integrated Resort Management Mentorship Scheme, with a new three-week program commencing on 26 August.
Operated in conjunction with the company’s non-profit Galaxy Entertainment Group Foundation, the GEG Mentorship Scheme aims to develop operational skills and sector knowledge for personnel interested in playing a role in the IR field and the broader Japanese hospitality industry.
Galaxy launched the program last year in collaboration with Japan’s Toyo University. This year’s program will incorporate lectures conducted by faculty members from the University of Macau as well as an in-depth and diverse study of IR operations hosted at Galaxy Macau. Subjects covered will include food and beverage management, hotel management, entertainment, retail services, event management, marketing and corporate social responsibilities, GEG said.
“GEG believes in the importance of providing practical opportunities for students from Japan to learn about the integrated resort industry,” said GEG Vice Chairman Francis Lui.
“Supporting local talent development is a key element in the sustainable and responsible development of IRs in Japan. This is in line with our practices in Macau and Hong Kong, where we have been providing young people with various opportunities to explore their career paths. We intend to sustain our contribution to Japanese society by continuing to support the younger generation, especially those interested in developing a career in the IR and hospitality industry.”
GEG said it intends to further expand with the cooperation of both Japanese and Macanese academic and commercial institutions in 2020 and beyond, including parallel opportunities for young people from Macau to benefit from similar learning experiences in Japan.
