Trinity International School of Tourism Management in Crete and the International School of Tourism in Tbilisi State University of Georgia have signed an agreement of cooperation.
The agreement between the two institutions came as an initiative from Trinity’s ongoing commitment to increase opportunities for its student body and to expand the scope of its international profile.
The cooperation was the result of a recent visit to Georgia by Trinity’s president Nikos Skoulas, where he met Dr. Maya Margelashvili, director of the International School of Tourism.
During the visit Mr. Skoulas delivered lectures at the university on entrepreneurship and aspects of an emerging hospitality and tourism industry such as exists in Georgia. It was also agreed that Dr. Margvelashvili would come to Trinity to discuss matters of common interest.
Under the terms of the agreement Trinity and Tbilisi State University will work together to develop student and faculty exchange programs and to engage in joint research in the rapidly changing hospitality and tourism industry.
Trinity has also agreed to provide Tbilisi’s International School of Tourism with assistance in the development of its new English Language BBA Degree program in Tourism and Hospitality Management.
Such a program at Tbilisi is expected to facilitate inter-institutional cooperation and ultimately provide students of each school with an opportunity to do part of their studies at other institutions.
