The University of Macau has awarded diplomas to 46 Sands China team members, after they completed the University of Macau’s one-year Diploma in Business Management. They are the fifth (class of 2019) and sixth intake (class of 2020) of team members to complete the custom-built programme.
The team members received their diplomas Wednesday at a graduation ceremony at the university. They represent a diverse group of gaming and non-gaming departments at Sands China, such as table games, facilities, housekeeping and others.
The diploma programme was specially designed to be practical and adaptable, and was tailor-made to be relevant for Sands China team members. As a bridge between secondary education and a bachelor’s degree, the programme supports both team members’ career advancement and academic pursuits. The programme structure is adjusted each year based on the observations of the university and a study of previous cohorts of team members. Coursework is also regularly updated to match the company’s real-life business situations.
“Our team members have earned our congratulations on their well-deserved success, as they have showed real perseverance in their studies despite the additional difficulties posed by the pandemic,” said Wen Hongyan, senior vice president of human resources for Sands China Ltd.
