Testimonials

"The comprehensive program curriculum has provided me with important knowledge for my professional development. Faculty members are very renowned in the hotel industry. In addition, UPC provides various quality resources to complement classes. I was awarded the Laureate scholarship to go to Costa Rica as an exchange student, which was a very enriching experience because I took tourism courses with a much more practical approach."

“UPC offers courses that adjust to the international levels demanded for a hotel manager at an international level. I didn't only take Hospitality courses, but also Administration ones, which complemented my studies perfectly. In addition, I had the opportunity to participate in the Shadowing Program by Hilton, where I learned directly from one of the hotel managers of the Hilton chain. I interacted with him and accompanied him in his management decision making. This was a very enriching experience and much appreciated when applying for a job.”

“UPC gave me the opportunity to study two majors at the same time, and in the end I had an education in Tourism and Administration. I consider it is one of the universities at the forefront in technology in the country, and its international approach allowed me to study a semester at Universidad Latina de Costa Rica, attend a student conference in Dubai, and get to know students who came from Europe to study at UPC. In addition to training professionals, I believe this university prepares entrepreneurs, young people who are ready to create and lead their own businesses and create their own future independently.”

I chose to study Tourism and Business Administration at UPC because it gave me the opportunity to obtain two degrees and take courses with professors with the highest quality. I consider the courses in my program have prepared me to develop professionally and successfully, and the fact that UPC demands its faculty members be professionals in the field has enabled me to receive all sorts of information firsthand.”
