I have recently completed the Business Environment Communication and Business Administration Major in the Travel and Tourism Management program. Eton College is wonderful. I joined Eton College as an international student. It was my first time going to the school with local students in Canada, but the welcoming atmosphere of this college blew my worries away! After you enroll, you will definitely find that all instructors are professional, knowledgeable, and always there to help you succeed. A nice mixture of local and international students helped me understand how to work with people from different cultures, which is important if you work in Canada.
Practicum is one of the highlights of my school life. I was working at Shangri-la Hotel in the reservation department. People at the hotel were very kind and helpful. There were some challenges once in a while, but that was a great chance to overcome my weaknesses. It was surprising to see that what I had learned at Eton College is exactly what I had experienced in the real working world.
One of the best skills I gained from Eton College is confidence. Your future is wide open from getting a job as a flight attendant to pursuing further education at universities in and outside of Canada. After finishing the course at Eton College, I am sure, you will also feel the same.
