The one year programme prepares students to learn how hotels are managed with regards to the rooms division operations and housekeeping of the property. The programme supplements knowledge gathered during graduation and how it can be implemented in the hospitality industry. Techniques on how to manage staff and maintain proper accounting of hotel operations are taught during the two semester period. The course prepares students to join as supervisors in small and mid-sized hotels.
The programme is delivered in two semesters. Between the two semesters, students are sent on industry exposure of four weeks to familiarise themselves with the hotel environment while 16 weeks of industrial training is mandatory after completion of the second semester. This provides students with a feel of the hotel working environment.
Hotels and ancillary industry hire meritorious students for jobs in the housekeeping and front office departments of hotels. Besides leading hotel chains, state tourism development corporations, railways, travel companies and retail outlets also recruit our students. Jobs are offered at middle management and supervisory levels where incumbents are expected to manage other staff members.
