What Students Say:
I chose IFT because it has a good reputation in teaching culinary arts management, and it has diverse faculty with real experience in tourism related industries." - Abdul 

"I really like how the culture of Europe and Asia live in peace together in Macao, and the tourism industry is booming here. Macao and IFT both offer me great opportunities." - Vera

"Traveling enriches any individual. Traveling alone is even more of an experience. [...] I was in a foreign country, surrounded by people whose first language was not English, and whose culture was so different than my own [...] I had to step out of my comfort zone to have conversations with others in order to make friends and find my way around." - Anna
