A group of 20 tourism management professors from China’s Beijing International Studies University visited GWSB in August for tourism education training. Dean Doug Guthrie welcomed the group, which was hosted by the School’s International Institute of Tourism Studies (IITS).
Many of the faculty members, who are from the university’s School of Tourism Management, are teaching and conducting research in tourism and tourism-related areas, said Kristin Lamoureux, the IITS director. They represent a variety of disciplines, including accounting, finance and marketing. The university is one of the oldest tourism education institutions in China.
The group spent about 10 days at GWSB, learning about innovative tourism research and teaching methods from half a dozen faculty members through the Institute’s Tourism Education and Research Training Program.
The GWSB stop was part of a larger, 16-day U.S. tour. The Chinese faculty also visited Boston, New York City and Philadelphia. Among their stops was a lecture series at Boston University.
