One-Year Certificate in Hotel and Tourism Operations
I-TIM’s one-year certificate program in Hotel and Tourism Operations is primarily designed for people who already have a degree in another field but wish to work either in the hotel or travel and tourism industry.
Students will follow the syllabus of the Certificate in Hotel and Tourism Industry Management. This introduces the concept of Hotel and Tourism Management, examines the practical, business functions of a hotel from a supervisor/junior management perspective, tourism management, European culinary and restaurant service and management.
By the end of the first year students will understand the practical elements of the running of a modern hotel. Students will also have an understanding of the social and economic environment in which hotels operate and the role of organizations within that environment. Moreover, they will gain an understanding of both restaurant services and European culinary techniques.
Our program was developed from the American Science of Hospitality Management and the Swiss System of Service Practice. Each program includes a five month internship program.
