Nanjing Institute of Tourism and Hospitality is the only vocational institute in Jiangsu Province that was authorized by Jiangsu Provincial government and the Provincial Tourism Bureau.  The predecessors were the Jinling lnstitute of Hotel Management and Nanjing Tourism School.  Jinling Institute was established in 1989 and was the first institute in China that was authorized by the Ministry of Education to train hotel management professionals.  Nanjing Tourism School was founded in 1978 and was the first tourism school in China and was praised as “the cradle of tourism personnel” within the industry.  Jinling Institute was merged with the tourism school in 2001 and was upgraded and renamed as Nanjing Institute on November 27, 2007.  It is now the main training base for tourism and hospitality industry in Jiangsu province and also the largest training center of hotel management in China.

For a number of years, we have educated over 10,000 graduates majoring in tourism and hospitality management.  Now there are more than 3,100 students on campus.  We offer 10 majors such as hotel management, tourism management, tour-guiding and travel agency management, tourism and hotel English, tourism and hotel Japanese,  tourism marketing, tour spots management, Chinese and western cookery and air-stewardship. Among these majors, the hotel management has been rated as the “national model major” by the State Ministry of Education and the “provincial model major” by the Provincial Bureau of Education.  Some new majors like tourism Korean, Golf club operation and management, property management and pastry-making will be offered in 2008 with the rapid development within the industry.

Our institute has persisted on the policy of qualification combined with industrial training and we have trained 60,000 professionals for China’s tourism and hospitality industry and they are distributed throughout China except Macau.  In particular our institute is the top among all the institutes in China which were designated by China National Tourism Administration in the training of hotel management personnel.  In order to strengthen our industry leadership, we held several national high-level forums and symposiums, which contributed a lot to the team training and management development of Chinese tourism and hotel industry.  As a result, our institute was dubbed the “huangpu Military School” of Chinese hospitality personnel.  In April, 2007, our institute was awarded as “National Advanced Group” by State Ministry of Personnel and National Tourism Administration. At the same time, the prize for training the tourism and hospitality personnel in Jiangsu Province was awarded by Provincial Tourism Bureau.

In order to meet the new trend of industry development and the urgent needs of qualified personnel, our institute led the effort to form Jiangsu Group of Tourism Vocational Education in 2005, with the great support from the Provincial Tourism Bureau and Provincial Education Bureau. It is the first group in China and is a conglomeration of several high-grade tourism and hospitality schools in Jiangsu Province, China’s top one hundred travel agencies, scenic areas of national 4A standard, famous four star or five-star hotels, and famous tourism-related trademark enterprises.  It has started the new model of institute-enterprise cooperation and group-based development with the aim of creating the leading position of tourism industry in Jiangsu and even throughout China.

We attach great importance to the cooperation with institutes and schools overseas.  All teachers have been sent to Ecole Hoteliere De Lausanne in  Switzerland, Cornell University in USA, Sha-tek Training Center in Singapore, Regency Institute Hotel School in Australia and other reputable institutes for further studies and advanced training.  In 2001 we signed the agreement with William Angliss Institute of Australia on hotel management. Recent years we have tried to set up our own international training bases. Each year there are more than 100 students who are selected to go abroad and work in some 4-star or 5-star hotels in Japan, Singapore and the Arab Emirates, including the famous 7-star Burj AL-Arab hotel.

The graduates of our institute have got the reputation of “Elegant appearance, good attitude and excellent skills” in the society. For many years the employment rate has been maintained at 100%.  The companies and groups coming to our institute to recruit graduates are from more and more industries each year, extending from hotels, travel agencies, and touristry locations to civil aviation, finance, telecommunication, real estate, and investment.

With the great support of Jiangsu government, the new campus is under construction.  It is situated in Jiangning university town with practical and advanced facilities and equipments. The new campus will be put into use in 2008 and it will be beneficial to the development both of our institute and of the tourism and hospitality industry in China.
