Professor Michael Driscoll
Hello. Welcome to Taylor's University.
It gives me great pleasure to be able to talk to you about our franchise collaboration between Taylor's University and Fishtail Mountain School of Hospitality, Tourism and Management, in Pokhara, Nepal. Pokhara, Nepal holds a special place in my heart. I first visited Nepal and run a course with Tribhuvan University right back in 1978 and I visited Nepal many times since then. It's a wonderful country and I look forward to the opportunity to revisit Nepal, and especially Pokhara. Taylor's University is ranked Top 20 in the world in the field of Hospitality and Leisure Management in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021 and is ranked 53rd in the QS Asia University Rankings 2022. It is partnerships such as these that allow us to rise together with the best in the higher education sector to deliver balanced excellence and produce great leaders of tomorrow. I am optimistic that this collaboration will not only ensure students are able to excel academically, but also it allows exchange of knowledge between the two institutions which will benefit students as much as it will help to enhance education partnership between Malaysia and Nepal a partnership that encourages harmony between the two countries. I wish all the students the very best in your studies with Taylor's University and Fishtail Mountain School in acquiring a world class degree to build your future. Thank you.
