The agreement is for a semester-long exchange program through which Georgia State hospitality majors can study at Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

“This exciting new program offers our students the chance to explore hospitality and tourism in one of the industry’s most dynamic markets and at one of its leading programs,” said Debby Cannon, director of the Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality Administration. “We are proud of the close ties we have forged with Hong Kong Polytechnic through our alumnus Kaye Chon, who is dean of the university’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management and is helping connect students to his alma mater through this international exchange agreement.”

“I am proud to offer hospitality students from my alma mater the opportunity to study in Hong Kong,” said Chon, who earned his bachelor’s degree in hospitality from Georgia State in 1984. “It is my hope that they will benefit from exposure to Asian hospitality, culture and business practices while abroad.”
