Dusit Thani has signed an agreement with Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) to offer Dusit Thani College’s popular curriculum in Hospitality Management at the 4 campuses of LPU in the Philippines.

Dusit Group owns and operates one of Thailand’s leading hospitality institutions, Dusit Thani College, and is currently expanding its hotel and resort portfolio onto the world stage with new developments in the Middle East, Egypt, India, Indonesia and China. 

Under the agreement, Dusit Thani College will provide curricula and academic resource materials for Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Administration specialized in Hotel and Restaurant Management, Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management, Tourism Management, as well as various intensive professional courses in Hotel Management, including Dusit Thani College’s famous Professional Chef and Culinary Arts programs, at LPU’s four campuses located in Manila, Batangas, Laguna and Cavite. In addition to curricula, Dusit will provide support in refreshment training and orientation to LPU’s teaching professionals.

Dusit International has been operating a five star deluxe hotel property in Makati, Metro Manila for many years and recently completed an extensive renovation and rebranded the hotel as the Dusit Thani Manila. The hotel will be used for student training and provide the idea introduction to their hospitality careers. Besides this, Dusit has plans to recruit a few thousand more staff and employees from the Philippines for several new Dusit International hotel openings in the Middle East over the next few years.

Chanin Donavanik, Chief Executive Officer of Dusit Thani Public Company Limited, said “Lyceum of the Philippines University is such a well known and established institution with campuses in various strategic locations, in the fastest growing region of the Philippines. We are extremely pleased to be working with the highly respected Laurel Family of the Lyceum Organization. Dusit will open more than ten new hotels globally in the next few years and we will need many new employees to join our new hotels. Hospitality graduates from the Philippines are extremely professional and dedicated to service, just as we are in Thailand. So the Philippines will be our major source of manpower and we intend to recruit many of our students to work for us.”

LPU, currently with the largest student enrollment of more than 10,000 students in the Philippines in Hotel & Restaurant Management and Tourism, plans to upgrade facilities at all their campuses to meet the high standard expected for the future programs. State-of-art facilities for “kitchen” training and various practical labs will be created or introduced at all campuses. In Manila, a spacious new learning center will be constructed at the Intramuros campus with fully equipped classrooms, training rooms, demonstration kitchens, and student practical kitchens, and other modern facilities. This new center is targeted to be fully operational in mid 2010. A full service hotel of 54 rooms with all facilities is also being planned to serve as training hotel and will be connected to this new learning center in Manila.

Roberto P. Laurel, President of the Manila and Cavite Campuses, and Peter Laurel, President of the Batangas and Laguna Campuses, both said the Lyceum Group “Looks forward to working for the realization of the objectives of our agreement and we are delighted to have Dusit Thani as our partner for Excellence in Hospitality Education in the Philippines.”
