THE Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness at Wil­liam Blue Col­lege of Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment un­locks a world of ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Kirsten Browne, the pro­gram man­ager of higher ed­u­ca­tion hos­pi­tal­ity, de­scribed it as “an ex­cel­lent blend of the dis­ci­pline of man­age­ment and the ex­cite­ment and dy­namism of hos­pi­tal­ity”.

A flex­i­ble ap­proach to study is of­fered, whether a stu­dent at­tends The Rocks cam­pus, stud­ies online, or a com­bi­na­tion of both.

Crit­i­cal busi­ness sub­jects such as mar­ket­ing, eco­nom­ics and lead­er­ship are part of the de­gree, as well as the more hos­pi­tal­ity spe­cific ar­eas cov­er­ing entrepreneurship, ac­com­mo­da­tion, gas­tron­omy, re­sort and spa, cruise line and rev­enue man­age­ment.

“Prac­ti­cal ex­er­cises in our hos­pi­tal­ity sub­jects may see a stu­dent visit a five-star ho­tel or re­sort, find them­selves in foodie heaven, be­ing im­mersed in daily cruise ship life,” she said.

“In the­o­ret­i­cal sub­jects they might dis­cover how to max­imise a ho­tel’s rev­enue and be ex­posed to amaz­ing in­dus­try en­trepreneurs.”

The course would suit any­one in­ter­ested in a lively ca­reer in hos­pi­tal­ity, whether straight out of school, al­ready work­ing in the in­dus­try or think­ing about chang­ing ca­reer paths.

“In hos­pi­tal­ity the guest is at the fore­front of ev­ery­thing, so a smile goes a long way,’ Ms Browne said.

Cus­tomer ser­vice is at the fore­front of a hos­pi­tal­ity ca­reer.
