Study for a Career in a growing and expanding Industry.

International tourism has continued to grow in 2012, despite global economic uncertainty, to reach over one billion international tourist arrivals.

There are currently too few students taking college and university courses in hospitality to sustain this industry expansion.

You can imagine, therefore, that there is enormous scope for those  who want to pursue a career in the industry, plus a huge range of employment opportunities across the varied subsectors. You might want to manage a hotel, run a restaurant or become the next Jamie Oliver, or maybe yourinterests lie in accountancy or information technology. You may want to start your own business or be part of an international one.

Whatever your talents, the hospitality industry offers variety and opportunity.
