On August 28, Caucasus University and the University of Central Florida signed an agreement on strategic partnership aiming at delivering a joint master’s degree Program in Hospitality and Tourism Management meeting modern international standards. The program will allow its students to acquire theoretical knowledge from the local and international specialists of the field and visit Rosen College of Hospitality Management for internships.


The cooperation envisages student exchange, re-training of the academic personnel, elaborating short-term certificate courses, holding joint events and gatherings, carrying out research projects and offering internships in Florida, which will significantly contribute to enhancing the capacity of Caucasus Tourism School.


UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management located in Orlando, Florida, offers students an unrivaled opportunity to learn and work in the heart of hospitality. Named the nation’s best, and the second best in world, the hospitality college has consistently moved up in the Shanghai Rankings’ survey over the last three years. Uniquely positioned in America’s top tourism destination, we educate the next generation of industry leaders through internationally-recognized faculty, innovative academic programs, cutting-edge research and strong industry and community partnerships.

It was through their support that Caucasus Tourism School obtained UNWTO international TEDQUAL certification and thereby became the first Georgian Higher Educational Institution with such recognition.
