The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, one of the world's leading hotel schools and a part of the global luxury hotel company, Jumeirah Group, recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
The agreement provides for study abroad programmes for students, faculty exchanges, academic cooperation and programmes for the development of young talent in the hospitality industry.

Jack Lo, Director of SPEED, added, "The MOU represents both organisations' continuous effort in establishing formal links with tertiary institutions delivering consistently high standards in the hospitality sector. The synergy created enhances the professional and academic development of our students, teaching faculties and ultimately the hospitality industry around the world."
In March 2011 Jumeirah Group opened its first property in China, the five-star luxury Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel in the Pudong area of Shanghai. The company has a further five properties under development in Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Sanya, Macau and Qiandaohu.
