Reviews of BS in Tourism Graduates from the Philippines

J. M.
Studied Bachelor of science in tourism
at CEU , Manila
Graduated: 2010

About CEU:
CEU is great. The people are awesome as long as you know how to get along with them. The school itself is one of the known schools here in the country shes one of the oldest schools that was built here in the philippines during spanish era. So it's a bit old but her beauty remains.

The facilities are ok too... Though the only facilities we used as a BST students are the laboratories and kitchens.

The professors -- theyre all great! Some are serious. Some are funny. But all of them are smart. They taught us a lot. And they will make sure that everything you learned from them stays with you.

About my college education:
Being a tourism student is hard and fun. We visit domestic and international places. Study every single history of each places. We did memorized the world map, every country, every places in each country, every festivals and cultures in each places, we studied aircrafts, etc. So you need to be good with memorization. You also need to be creative.

My current job:
Call center agent
Totally not related to Bachelor of science in tourism


Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes! My communication skills. My knowledge with every country in the world. Because I communicate with people from different countries. And if you don't know anything about their cultures you wont be able communicate with them well.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
A month after my graduation. I started working in NAIA as a ground steward. Then last year I decided to try working as a call center agent until now.

Do I recommend studying Bachelor of science in tourism:
Yes! In terms of employment oppotunities and career fulfillment. Because as a graduate of BST you can work with hotels, tavel agencies, restaurants, cruises, airports, etc. And You can travel around the globe for free. Thats what fun about being a tourism graduate. Though it doesnt offer the highest salaries you can imagine. But there's nothing wrong with that everyone starts with small salaries. So work hard. Who knows maybe one day youll be the richest person in the world. That will only happen if you work hard enough achieve it.

Algerico Magtuba
Studied BS in Tourism
at Lyceum of the Philippines University , Manila
Graduated: 2008

About Lyceum of the Philippines University:
I'm very happy that was able to study at a top university in the country. It's located in Intramuros. It's environment is not as busy as let's say U-Belt, which I prefer of course. Besides, isn't it nice that your school is situated inside or at least new a very historic place? Well I think it's really awesome. It's cool to see the carinderias incorporated in the old structures of the place. While you're eating and enjoying the fresh air or Manila, you also get reminded of the nice history of the Philippines. Don't we all love educational things. As for the facilities of my university, I wouldn't consider them as state-of-the-art, but they are functional and appropriate for the respective courses.

About my college education:
Tourism was a dream course for me. I've always wanted to be a flight attendant and this was really the right college education. But it was definitely more than just a stepping stone to being a stewardess or steward. Actually, tourism is like a mix of marketing and business management. The only difference is that your product here are a city or a nation's human, physical, and financial resources. You are trained to present, for example, Philippines as the best tourist spot in South-East Asia, or even in the whole world. It was interesting in the light that tourism students had a responsibility to the country.. in trying to develop it for the better of both foreigners and locals. The difficult thing I found out about my course was I had to be more sensitive and be more knowledgeable about the culture and ways of the people from different origins. I believe things having to do with self-concept or awareness is almost always way harder than memorizing terminologies.

My current job:
I'm a Sales and Marketing Officer

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
After I graduated, I applied at a travel agency and got hired after right away. It didn't take me more than two months to get my first job.

Do I recommend studying BS in Tourism:
If you like to have the opportunity to go to different places, Tourism is the course for you since a common career path is becoming an Airline Flight Attendant.

Studied Bachelor of Science in Tourism
at University Of The Philippines Diliman , Quezon City
Graduated: 2012

About University Of The Philippines Diliman:
The institute has a distinct home-like feel to it and you could almost smell the positive ambiance radiating from it.
The facilities are high end and could actually meet the standards of any high-end school you could name.
The mentors, as we preferably call them, are approachable and caring at times. They don't make you feel like you're at the bottom of the pit and all of them are very enthusiastic with what they're doing.

About my college education:
In my four years of study in Asian Institute of Tourism (which is UP's separate department for tourism affairs), I can say that it is downright challenging but at the same time, enjoyable.
Sticking to the fact that Tourism Management is actually about connecting and mingling with other people, social skills is a must. And in order for an individual to succeed in this course, he must have an open mind plus an excellent ability in interpersonal matters.

My current job:
I'm a flight steward at Air Asia.

It took me three months to land a job because of the requirements and interviews.
