Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This is the Senior Year Entry 2-year BSc (Hons) Hotel Management programme.

The BSc(Hons) in Hotel Management educates students about the business of hotel management. Its customer-service focus enables graduates to excel in the hotel industry.  The unique structure of the programme also enables students to develop specialised expertise in hotel general management, food service management, or hotel administration.

This multidisciplinary programme prepares students for careers at the management level in the hotel, food service and broader service industries, either locally or internationally.

Students will learn to be customer-focused, analytical and independent, and at the same time develop communication and leadership skills.  They gain a global perspective to meet the growing challenges that are faced by the dynamic hotel and tourism industries.


Students are exposed to a wide variety of subjects in their areas of study.  Work-Integrated Education (WIE) is an important feature of the programme, through which students can gain useful work experience either locally or overseas.

In addition to normal classroom teaching, field trips and visits are also widely used teaching and learning methods.

The School of Hotel and Tourism Management recognises that language and multicultural skills are two important qualities that graduates need to succeed in today's global hospitality and tourism industries.  Hence, students can choose to participate in international exchange programmes and study at an overseas hotel and tourism school for a semester.  Students joining outbound exchange programme may need to undertake their WIE in part-time mode or their graduation will probably be delayed.
