Tourism Program at SICHE

I note Oligao's comments on this issue, in particular, on nationality and our countrymen and women getting degrees in this field. On former, it is my view, as a student, that selection shouldn't be made on the basis of nationality. To avoid compromising academic standards, SICHE, in my view, has to attract "good quality" lecturers from around the globe. You will have to sit down in one of the lectures to comprehend what I am talking about. Some of our local lecturers are too lousy, they dont even have passion to teach. My point is we need quality people. On latter, all I can say is getting a university degree per se is no a requisite for being a good lecturer or an expert in tourism.
