At this graduation ceremony, Elizabeth International, through its Ezzycareer.com division, demonstrated its commitment to providing career opportunities and encouraging an entrepreneurial spirit by hosting the 7th Bali International Career Expo (BICE). This event invited 34 global academic and hotel partners who support Elizabeth International’s alumni and students’ career opportunities.

In addition, the Ezzypreneur Festival was also attended by 12 tenants who are Elizabeth International’s active students who have participated in business development coaching offered by Elizabeth International Business Incubator since August 2023 to foster the spirit of young entrepreneurs.

Sri Budani explained that the hospitality education sector has improved since the pandemic ended, and has had a positive impact on the increasing number of students signing up for classes at the Elizabeth International campus.

“Previously, parents questioned why they should send their children to the hospitality sector if tourism had not recovered. But following the recovery of tourism, their confidence has also increased,” she said.

This has triggered Elizabeth International to continue to innovate, one of which is by opening a new class, namely Bar and Mixology, and collaborating with well-known brands in the world of hospitality.
