The Associate Degree of Hospitality Management was developed as a qualification that equips students with the underpinning technical and theoretical knowledge for a career in the hospitality industry up to industry standards. Graduates will have a sound knowledge of hospitality operations up to a five stars rating standard. Additional business units expand the range of employment opportunities in the field of hospitality management.
With the acquisition of specialist knowledge in room’s division management, food and beverage management, human resource management, quality service management and facility management, graduates will be able to undertake paraprofessional employment in the hospitality industry.
