College of Hotel & Restaurant Management and Tourism
Inside UL’s Hotel and Restaurant Management-Tourism
“In the global economy where hospitality industry stands as one of the top opportunity providers in the market, our school capitalizes on the idea that HRM-Tourism students could become our nation’s greatest assets by sustaining their knowledge through modern facilities and wholesome approach.” – Dr. Amalia De La Cruz
The Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM)-Tourism is a unique training ground for future hoteliers.
With a world-class faculty, a dedication to quality education, and modern facilities – commercial and demo kitchen laboratory, bar and restaurant and freshly-enhanced hotel amenities – the HRM-Tourism has all the resources the students need to achieve their highest potentials.
The evolving instructional standards set by the school provide personal and enriching interactions that shape students both intellectually and socially, while providing a supportive and friendly environment inside the university.
As the general management focuses on developing smarter tools to assure the highest possible education in this field, students are well trained to hone their skills and gain more knowledge through an externship program that will lead them to a real-life experience by working with Five Star hotels and restaurants around the world.
The first externship program was in Singapore in 2009 which brought forth greater success in 2014 in Five (5) Five Star hotels in Phuket, Thailand namely: Panwa Beach Resort, Cape Panwa Hotel, Casa Flora Hotel, La Flora Beach Resort and Kantary Beach Resort, Khaolak.
By applying greater expertise, and demanding better results from its teachers, the UL will help bring about an impact by which her students can readily adapt the challenges of the 21st century.
Established in 1974 as the Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) and Applied Technology, this department, widely known as the training ground for world class hoteliers, has undergone several improvements to bring fruition to the vision laid out by the University of Luzon’s founding fathers.
In 1998, it was renamed as College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, Tourism and Applied Technology (HRM-TAT) and soon thereafter named College of Hotel and Restaurant Management-Tourism in 2007. It earned a Level II status from the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) – a private accrediting agency which gives formal recognition to schools that maintain excellent standards in its educational operations.
Banking on its 40-year tradition of excellence, the HRM-Tourism aims to accomplish more, as it primarily capitalizes on the tourism potentials of the province of Pangasinan.
Over the years, the College of HRM-Tourism is proud to deliver an education focused on both knowing and doing by working with its students’ individual dreams for it already produced thousands of competent professionals employed in various related fields, here and abroad.
Today, the UL strives to raise the level of academic work with the mantra “Perecias y Valias” (skills and values) as its guiding light in laying the groundwork for the brighter future of the nation’s hoteliers.
