The deadline for submission of the names is July 30, 2022.
Early this month, the university launched a naming competition open to its students, alumni and the general public.
During the launch, MKUR Vice-Chancellor Designate Prof. Edwin Odhuno urged the institution’s students, alumni and the general public to participate in the competition.
“For a long time, MKUR has been building pride in Rwandan communities due to its commitment to infrastructural development and offering quality and affordable education. We are proud to associate ourselves with the public. We therefore invite all Rwandans to propose names for the training hotel. Potential winning names should resonate with the university’s mission of training high quality hospitality and tourism personnel in support of Rwanda’s development agenda,” he said.
The School of Hospitality and Tourism is one of MKUR’s centres of Excellence.
The hotel facility will strengthen its training component and transform its graduands to seamlessly fit in the labour market and help build one of Rwanda’s fastest growing sector.
The facility will be one of its kind in the Great Lakes region and is being benchmarked with the following hotels among others: Swiss Hotel Schools Les-Roches- Switzerland, Cornell University School of Hotel Administration of USA, and Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
