From August 25th to 30th 2008, Bunda Mulia Hospitality and Tourism Academy held an orientation week (POM) for the new students. During POM, the students were introduced to several important aspects that they might experience during their learning process. They were given some knowledge on the introduction to the hospitality industry, the paradigm of service industry, and how to manage their time effectively.
To get them to know more about the hotel industry, the students and some of the faculty members were invited to visit the Red Top Hotel in Jakarta on the fourth day of the POM. In this hotel, they were introduced to some of the working activities in the hotel, such as in the kitchen, at the front office, in the restaurants, and also in the guest rooms. At the end of their visit, the students were treated as guests having lunch in a table manner program delivered by the hotel banquet manager.
