In the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management, there is an additional industry placement requirement. Within the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management, students can undertake one of three streams: Hospitality, Commercial Cookery, or Patisserie.

Besides Australian qualification programmes, Pegasus provides a wide range of domestic programmes in hospitality; professional skills courses such as Event Management, International Cookery, and Patisserie, and even afterschool programmes for kids, to reach different segments of students.

Students seeking a pathway to a degree are given a choice of joining one of Pegasus’ university partners to complete a bachelor’s degree.

Through agreements between Pegasus International College and Edinburgh Napier University in the UK, TAFE New South Wales in Australia, and Elmhurst College in the US, upon completion of the two-year Advanced Diploma at Pegasus, students can articulate into a bachelor’s degree programme at one of these universities.

Corporate training for four and five-star hotels and resorts

As the training arm of KinderWorld Education Group, Pegasus International College provides reliable hospitality through a range of training programmes to hotel employees from the supervisory level upwards in four- and five-star hotels.

With a significant investment in training facilities and equipment, Pegasus creates a modern and high-quality training environment for learners in Hanoi and the central city of Danang.

Besides fulfilling Australian and ASEAN hospitality and tourism standards, Pegasus has also been approved as a training and assessment centre by the Vietnam Tourism Certification Board to conduct the assessment according to the Vietnam Tourism Occupational Standards (VTOS).

To bring the most effective assistance to corporate partners, Pegasus consults with the HR and training managers of many hotels to analyse their training needs and specific demands to improve the working quality of hotel staff.

Then, a number of customised training programmes are developed to meet specific training needs. Pegasus has been successfully provided training to corporates in the hospitality industry such as:

-Training programmes to front line staff in Housekeeping, Food and Beverage Service, and Front Office for Hilton Opera Hanoi Hotel, Melia Hanoi Hotel, Vinpearl Hotel and Resort, Fraser Suites, Emperor Cruisers, and Thanh Nien Guest House.

-Training programme in Western Cuisine and Patisserie for Pilgrimage Village, and training for chefs of Vinpearl Hotel and Resort.

-Training programmes in Hotel Supervision and Hotel Management for supervisors and management at Melia Hanoi Hotel, Vinpearl Hotel and Resort, Fortuna Hotel, May de Ville Hotel Group, Emeralda Ninh Binh, Ana Mandara Dalat, Army Hotel, and Vegas Plaza.

- English Proficiency Test for staff of InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort and Nikko Hanoi Hotel, programme in Communication and Customer Service Skills for An Viet Hospital.

The training quality of Pegasus is highly appreciated by its corporate partners. The proof is the continuing co-operation with customers such as Melia Hanoi Hotel and Vinpearl Hotel and Resort. For example, Vinpearl Hotel and Resort chose Pegasus to provide a Hotel Management training programme for more than 30 general managers and heads of departments in different Vinpearl premises, after sending 160 chefs to study Food Preparation at Pegasus.

Moreover, four Front Office training classes for Vinpearl Hotel and Resort have been successfully delivered by Pegasus. In addition to co-operation with industry partners, Pegasus also collaborates with the Hanoi Department of Tourism to train on-site tour guides and managers at three- to four-star hotels in Hanoi.

On the way to becoming a leading hospitality training provider in Vietnam, Pegasus always tries its best to provide professional training service to its customers and partners.

On October 12, 2017, Pegasus International College signed two important agreements with Elmhurst College (Chicago-America) to maximise study pathways as well as to strengthen mutual partnership by facilitating academic, cultural, and research exchange programmes for students and faculty.

Through these agreements, Pegasus students are offered guaranteed admission to Elmhurst College to complete the Elmhurst Management Programme. Furthermore, Pegasus has been appointed as Elmhurst College’s exclusive student recruitment agent in Vietnam.

Founded in 1871, Elmhurst College is situated on a beautiful campus, only a 30-minute train ride from downtown Chicago.

Ranked as a Top-10 Regional Midwest University in 2017 by the US News & World Report, Elmhurst College offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees with 61 undergraduate majors and 16 graduate programmes, as well as 16 pre-professional programmes.

Elmhurst College is also well-known for its small class sizes and the individual attention students receive from faculty.

In addition to degree and graduate courses, the Summer Immersion Programme is a month-long programme combining academic coursework and college admission workshops with cultural activities, designed to give international students a taste of American college life.

The students live in the residence halls, take an economics class for college credit, and experience American culture through museums, baseball games, shopping malls, and outdoor concerts.

In December 2017 and January 2018, Elmhurst College is co-operating with Pegasus International College to organise special information sessions geared toward prospective freshman applicants in Vietnam.

This is also the best opportunity for students to meet the president of Elmhurst College, Dr. Troy VanAken, to learn about studying abroad in the US as well as international scholarships up to $76,000 for Elmhurst’s undergraduate programme.
