Advanced Service Management (Special Program at Florida State University)

June 5 – Dec. 17, 2020

Florida State University (FSU) offers a special program in Advanced Service Management designed to help students develop intercultural competencies through FSU classes and work-integrated learning at Walt Disney World Resort. FSU's intensive summer program in Advanced Service Management offers students from Loyalist College a unique opportunity to join students from some of FSU's partner institutions for 10 days of intensive academic study and intercultural interaction on the beautiful FSU campus in Tallahassee, Florida.

FSU Experience

The Advanced Service Management program is available to students majoring in approved programs at Loyalist College.

During their 10-day stay at Florida State University (FSU), students are enrolled in an intensive three-credit course in Managing Service Organizations. This course incorporates experiential learning, using a combination of classroom instruction and course-related field trips.

While at FSU, students live on campus in an apartment-style residence hall and eat at the historic "Suwannee Room" dining hall. Four current FSU students are selected as Peer Mentors to act as cultural ambassadors and provide ongoing support to program participants. Peer Mentors live and eat with students and facilitate a variety of social and cultural activities in the afternoons and evenings.

Disney International College Program

Upon completion of FSU's on-campus component of the program, students travel to Orlando to begin a six-month academic training (placement) experience at Walt Disney World Resort. Students work in one of the parks, resorts or entertainment areas of Walt Disney World Resort. 

While students are in Orlando, faculty and staff from FSU travel monthly to Walt Disney World Resort to facilitate classes and provide program support. During this time, students earn three credits for their six-month academic training experience (placement) and six additional credits for the two courses taught by an FSU instructor.

During their academic training at Walt Disney World Resort, students live in company-sponsored housing specifically designated for program participants. The apartments are fully furnished and include utilities, internet and access to a bus system specifically for Disney cast members. For more information, see
