As part of an effort by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to offer graduate courses during the K to 12 transition period, the School for Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management (SHRIM) of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) has been designated as a Delivering Higher Educational Institution (DHEI), enabling it to offer scholarships for faculty of higher educational institutions (HEI).
As a DHEI, SHRIM will be able to administer this program off-site. Selected professors will deliver to HEIs required classes, either through face-to-face or classroom-based sessions, distance education, or a combination of both modes.
Jose Rizal University, Divine Word College (Legazpi), and University of the Immaculate Conception (Davao City) now offer Master’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management, through SHRIM, a CHED Center of Excellence in Hotel and Restaurant Management.
Graduates of the program will receive a diploma from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde upon completion of their requirements.
Based on CHED Memorandum Order No. 4 S. 2016, instructors at HEIs will experience reduced teaching loads for five years, from SY 2016-2017 to SY 2020-2021, making it an opportune time for teachers to undertake and complete further studies.
“The establishment of such programs during the K to 12 transition period aims to equip 70 percent of HEI faculty with graduate degrees by 2021, bringing the Philippines up to par with our ASEAN neighbors. This is also in view of expanding the fields of expertise and specializations available in the country, particularly in emerging disciplines critical to academic, regional and national development, and where experts are scarce,” the CHED memo explained.
