Mahidol University International College’s (MUIC) Tourism and Hospitality Management (THM) Division reported that its Bachelor of Management in Travel and Service Business Entrepreneurship has successfully obtained a renewal of its UNWTO.TedQual Certification recently.
The program is the first and the only undergraduate program in Thailand that has been certified by UNWTO.TedQual, considered as an important certification for programs in tourism and related fields. This certification is good until 2026 or another four years. The program first received certification in 2018 after undergoing rigorous certification.
In a letter dated April 28, 2022, Mr. Omar Valdez, Executive Director of the UNWTO Academy officially informed Dr. Veerades Panvisavas, THM Division Chair, of the certification renewal.
The UNWTO.TedQual website states that its main objective is “to improve the quality of the tourism education, training and research programs. For this purpose, evaluation criteria– universally applicable to any institution – have been defined to seek, among other things, to measure the efficiency of their academic system, as well as their degree of incorporation of the tourism industry and students needs to those programs.”
