Among these are: An international internship program for Malaysian students at Colegio de San Juan de Letran in the hotel and hospitality discipline; a six-month internship program in Malaysia for Letran Manila students, with Infotrade Consultant providing the necessary facilities for training; and a possible visit by Letran Manila faculty to Malaysia to assess the training facility and operation of the internship program. It was also specified in the M.O.U. that both parties will ensure adherence to the training syllabus.
The M.O.U. was signed in the spirit of international cooperation and altruism. Affixing their signatures to the document were Rev. Fr. Juan Ponce, O.P., Letran Manila’s Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Dr. Baha HJ. Nordin, President of Infotrade Consultant.
