The Wine & Spirit Education Trust or commonly known as WSET is a globally recognised education organisation, specialising in the field wines and spirits which was founded over 40 years ago. Facilitated by Dr Daniel Chong Ka Leong, Programme Leader of BSc (Hons) in International Hospitality Management, the AYS Wine & Sake Consultancy exclusively partnered with Sunway University to provide trainings for the WSET certifications.
Dr Daniel Chong saw a need for students to be ready for the hospitality industry. Therefore, bridging students of the School to attain professional certification. This certification provides in-depth wine knowledge and principles, and is a pathway for those seeking to reach the Master of Wine level. It is also important to note that the WSET® Certification Body started in the year 1969 and since has been widely known as the largest and most respected professional wine certification body in the world. This professional certification body is present in over 70 countries, in more than 15 languages.
During the presentation of the certificates and lapel pins, Mr Anthony Yeong (CEO and Co-Founder of AYS Wine & Sake Consultancy) highlighted during the presentation of certificates, stating: “This certification is invaluable in the hospitality industry especially in first-class airlines companies, and top hotels & restaurants”. Having bagged this certification, more opportunities would be opened up to these students with aspiration to work in the vibrant hospitality industry.
The School of Hospitality celebrates along with the students who has successfully attained these certifications. Congratulations to Tai Lu Ern, Lee Wei Chuin, Leong Kwai Yoke, Tang Wei Jye, Ng Jia Ern, Lai Ming Jun Honester, Cheah Yung Ren, Yap Kai Yuen, and Teoh Jian Yi.
