For Leong Yin Kit, the CEO of YTL-ICHM, hospitality has always been her North Star. Her academic progression in the field of hospitality ran concurrently as she gained practical, real-world experience of the industry. Her academic pursuits resulted in double Master’s degrees; the first in Business Management and another in Tourism and Hospitality, attained at the Australian Institute of Business. In time, Leong would transition the sum of her work experience and academic qualifications to the education sector, playing a pivotal role in the setting up of YTL International College of Hotel Management (YTL-ICHM).
