MGM supports University of Macau’s study tour to Las Vegas

In its commitment to developing local talent, casino operator MGM recently supported a University of Macau (UM) study tour to Las Vegas, allowing students to gain an in-depth understanding of the operations of MGM Resorts International as well as the hospitality and gaming landscape in the city.

The participants consisted of 41 students in the third and fourth year of the Gaming Management Program and Convention and Hospitality Management Program, plus three accompanying faculty members.

In addition, four representatives from the Sheng Kung Hui Macau Social Service Office joined the tour to enhance their skills and knowledge associated with the responsible gaming services in order to contribute to the Macau scene.

In an effort to offer the group the opportunity to explore non-gaming elements and responsible gaming measures in the world’s leading hospitality and entertainment company MGM Resorts International, the company arranged hotel site inspection tours at its properties including Bellagio, Aria, MGM Grand and T-Mobile Arena.

An executive panel to meet and exchange ideas with MGM senior management team was also arranged, followed by the appreciation of the featured show “O” at Bellagio.
