The MBA students recently took part in a bespoke two day careers program. The highlight of the program was an interactive session on social media related to careers given by Peter O’Connor, Associate Dean of Essec’s Hospitality Management programs and Professor of Information Systems. Professor O’Connor was awarded the Laureate Hospitality Achievement Award, recognising an educator for outstanding achievement in contributing innovative ideas, methods or programs that have advanced teaching, learning or practice in the field of hospitality and tourism education at the EuroChrie conference in Lausanne last October and his presentation to the Masters students showed that award was well deserved! Full of hints and tips and insight, his presentation was particularly well received by the Master students.

Accreditation is the basis of quality assurance in education and visits such as these allow the benchmarking of best practice and contribute to scholarly knowledge on quality assurance issues within the Higher Education sector.
