WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER HOSPITALITY STUDY OPENS UP NEW GLOBAL HORIZONS
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.
