This is a 2-year combination course designed for students who wish to take both tourism and hospitality programs to qualify for more job opportunities. Graduates of this course will be equipped with the same skill set as those who will take the two courses separately.
This track will provide the students with a solid foundation on the various aspects of hotel and resort management from front to back office. Beyond learning the operational functions of key hospitality divisions such as rooms, front office and food services, students will also take modules on sales and marketing, events and convention management and human resource management, among others. Students will be trained not only for entry-level positions but supervisorial and managerial roles as well.
This track will provide the students with a global perspective of the travel and tourism industry as they learn about current trends, sub-sectors and other industry components. They will gain an in-depth knowledge on tourism business management which covers planning, product development, marketing and operation. Aside from airline regulations and fare structures, the program also includes a live hands-on airline reservation system training that is not included in the curriculum of other schools offering tourism courses.
