According to Professor Jacky So, Dean of Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Macau, Seoul was a strategically-chosen destination for the University of Macau’s GLDP series, “This program is specially designed for senior executives in Asia’s hospitality and MICE industries. Our goal is to nurture these executives to become globally competitive and socially responsible leaders of both hospitality and business events, and Seoul sets high standards in these areas that we can all learn from.”
