This past summer 44 Ningbo students arrived in Toronto where they will study at Humber for the 2022-2023 academic year. The students will complete their advance diploma in Business Administration – International. To better prepare them for living in Toronto and studying at Humber, their journey started with a 5 - week summer orientation program. In the program, they learned about Canadian cultural and the Toronto Community, they took courses to improve their writing, listening, speaking, and business skills. At the same time, they also participated in a variety of cultural activities such as exploring the city of Toronto with the Urban Adventure activity, they watched a Blue Jay’s game, went to Wasaga Beach and Niagara Falls and had fun on all the rides at Canada’s Wonderland. Many students in the program will complete their studies at Humber College and move on to complete a degree before pursuing a career in international business back home in China.
After a two-year hiatus (due to the pandemic) the Longo Faculty of Business welcomed back students from the National Kaohsiung University of Hospitality & Tourism (NKUHT). The NKUHT students are studying at Humber for the full 2022-2023 academic year and are enrolled in the following programs: Tourism - Travel Services Management, Culinary Management, and Hospitality- Hotel and Restaurant: Operations Management. They arrived at the end of August and participated in a 2-week intensive English and Culture orientation program to better adapt to Canadian culture and the Canadian education system. This is a unique program because, at the end of their classroom studies, the students complete a 3-month internship placement in Canada. Please stay tuned for information about an upcoming Taiwanese cultural event the students are planning for International Education Week at Humber. The event will showcase many of the traditional elements of Taiwanese culture including cooking demonstrations, food tasting, intricate dance performances, calligraphy demonstrations, and much more.
