“I enrolled in the course Managing Marketing in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry from The PolyUx MicroMasters programme due to a recommendation, and it turned out to be an enriching learning experience. 

The course gives a quality base in Marketing for Hospitality and Tourism with professors and guest speakers with interesting experiences, as well as the opportunity to enhance theoretical knowledge with real industry problems and settings.

Zhou Xinyu (Highest score in HTM540x)

Postgraduate student of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

“I am Heather, a student from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I was recommended by friends and started my exploration of the MicroMasters Programme after I got my offer from PolyU.

My experience with MicroMasters was very good. First I was able to finish some of the postgraduate courses in advance.  And on the edX platform, I could check my study progress anytime, which was very helpful for me to review my courses and improve my study efficiency. Students can also download the videos so that they can watch them again and again and record the key points.

Learning is never an easy task. Although the courses are online, many times students are required to deal with multiple tasks. I found it was difficult for me to complete studies within the scheduled time, but in the end I did. After overcoming pressures and problems, I could clearly feel the improvement in my learning abilities, which I think is a surprise from MicroMasters.

I hope my experience can help more people who are interested, to join the PolyUx MicroMasters, access these well organized courses, and start their learning exploration.”
