On November 7, 2023, LPU Cavite reached a significant milestone in fostering industry partnerships during THE Talks 2023, hosted by the College of International Tourism and Hospitality Management. The event showcased LPU-Cavite’s Cruise Line Management program, featuring esteemed guests from Disney Cruise Line and TDG Crew Management Inc.

Beyond the excitement of promising careers onboard Disney Cruise Ships, the event also underscored a commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The engagement with international guests served as a platform to discuss how the cruise industry aligns with the SDGs, particularly in promoting decent work and economic growth (SDG 8) and industry, innovation, and infrastructure (SDG 9).

This collaboration with Disney Cruise Line and TDG Crew Management Inc. not only opens doors to vast job opportunities for LPU graduates but also emphasizes the importance of responsible tourism and global sustainability. The cruise industry, when managed responsibly, contributes to the achievement of several SDGs, including sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and partnerships for the goals (SDG 17).

The event encapsulated LPU-C’s educational vision, showcasing its dedication to providing a universal, transformative, and realistic education that aligns with global efforts to create a more sustainable and inclusive future. By integrating discussions on SDGs into such industry-oriented events, LPU-Cavite continues to prepare its students not only for successful careers but also for active participation in shaping a better world.
