Texas Tech Department of Nutrition, Hospitality and Retailing professor Ben Goh was recently awarded the 2012-2013 Fulbright Scholar Program grant to serve as a lecturer at Bangkok University in Thailand.

Goh’s project focuses on tourism and hospitality management education in Thailand. While overseas, he will teach financial and operational management in the service industry for graduate students, and innovation and change management in the service industry.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to teach at Bangkok University this fall,” he said. “New courses and teaching in a totally different cultural environment will definitely be an interesting experience.”

Goh said he chose Thailand because it is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, making his course material highly applicable.

Next fall, roughly 1,100 U.S. faculty and professionals will travel abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program. The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to increase mutual understanding between the citizens of the U.S. and residents of other countries.

    I had Dr. Goh for both undergraduate and masters courses while at Texas Tech, he is a very talented professor. Not only does Dr. Goh challenge each student with his course load, his curriculum is vital to real-world applications in the hospitality professional world. He really makes his students work hard, but it is the kind of class that you are are proud of yourself when you finish his exam, because he has prepared you for his tests AND to go out in the real world and succeed!

    Dr. Goh is an excellent professor, and he had an impact on many students like myself. I was a graduate student at TTU and Dr. Goh always helped me at every turn. I wish him well and much success in his new teaching assignment. Sincerely
