Through Solimar’s work with the USAID Economic Security Program, we recently provided assistance to Caucasus University in obtaining TedQual International Accreditation by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). This distinguished designation for excellence in tourism education was awarded on September 17th, 2020 for the Bachelor’s Degree program in the School of Tourism at Caucasus University in Georgia.
To date, no university or college level program in the region has achieved UNWTO TedQual Certification. The UNWTO Certification will significantly increase the performance and competitiveness of the Caucasus University School of Tourism through upgrading the quality of the tourism education programs in compliance with the TedQual standards.
It is noteworthy that Caucasus School of Tourism is the first school in the region to have started the accreditation process of its programs in tourism. This accreditation program will significantly increase the competitiveness of its graduates and raise the program’s international awareness.
