A testimony to Özyeğin University’s sector-integrated education philosophy, the annual “Sectoral Meeting” event took place this year with the participation of over 60 leading businesses from the hospitality and food and beverages sectors. “Sectoral Meeting” brought together the Undergraduate Hotel Management and Undergraduate Gastronomy and Culinary Arts students with department heads and top management of pioneering hospitality and food and beverage businesses to learn more about internship and work opportunities, and submit their first applications.
This year marked the seventh edition of “Sectoral Meeting”, which took place on Çekmeköy Campus of Özyeğin University on December 5. The seventh Sectoral Meeting event was celebrated this year with more than 60 businesses. The event gave Özyeğin University students the opportunity to meet their future employers for their mandatory summer internships and advanced level internships, and seek career consultancy from the seasoned representatives of the sector about their career goals. Meanwhile, our graduation candidates also had the chance to discuss potential employment opportunities.
