The hospitality industry is one of Australia's and the world's biggest and most dynamic workforces and it is still growing every year. If you thrive on change and are quick on your feet, then this is the industry for you! A career in the hospitality industry is not just about hotels; instead it includes opportunities in many different areas including events (sporting, cultural, concerts, exhibitions, etc.), conferences, banqueting, theme parks and attractions, restaurants, catering, resorts (golf, ski, beach, spa, etc.) airlines and cruise lines and many more service-related industries. Whichever you choose, no two days are likely to be the same.

The Bachelor of Hospitality Management provides graduates with the skills required for supervisory and managerial roles within the hospitality and related service industries. During your course you will learn how to find out who your customers are, what they want and need, as well as how to provide it both on time and to the highest possible standard.

To equip you for this complex and fast paced workforce you will need a combination of theoretical knowledge taught by our experienced lecturers and practical skills which are learnt through classes held in our onsite restaurants and a 24 week placement with one of the many world class establishments we have connections with. Through this practical application of theory and concepts you will develop a broad based understanding of hospitality and management so that both you and your future employer will be able to stand out from the competition.
