Enderun Colleges has achieved so much in its relatively short history. The College has become an intellectual hub in the areas of hotel administration, culinary arts, entrepreneurship, and management. And now, we have expanded to technology with information systems, a degree focusing on technology management.

Enderun students come from different parts of the world. Our experience-based education includes a strong management, hospitality, culinary, and business curricula wherein students discover a world full of opportunities, possibilities, and ideas that will prepare them for life. We encourage our students to become critical and independent thinkers to make them globally competitive. The international faculty is composed of dynamic, ambitious, and energetic industry practitioners who are widely exposed in their specific fields of study.

I look forward to continuing to work at Enderun and strengthen the College as a choice for outstanding students. I invite you to explore our campus and learn more about our exciting and diverse programs. You are always welcome here.
