About School of Hotel and Tourism Management, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Welcome

For close to 40 years, the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has refined a distinctive vision of hospitality and tourism education and become a symbol of excellence in the field, exemplifying its motto of Leading Hospitality and Tourism. Rated No. 1 in the world in the “Hospitality and Tourism Management” category according to ShanghaiRanking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2017, placed No. 1 in the world in the “Hospitality, Leisure, Sport & Tourism” subject area by the CWUR Rankings by Subject 2017 and ranked among the top 3 “Hospitality and Leisure Management” institutions globally in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017/2018, the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is uniquely positioned to not only ride the Asian wave, but also to lead it in educational excellence.

At the SHTM, close to 2,000 students are guided by 75 academic staff from 22 countries and regions with more than 400 combined years of experience in the Hospitality Industry. The School offers programmes at levels ranging from undergraduate degrees to doctoral degrees. A member of the UNWTO Knowledge Network, the School was bestowed the McCool Breakthrough Award in 2012 by the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education (I-CHRIE) recognising its breakthrough in the form of its teaching and research hotel – Hotel ICON – the heart of the School’s innovative approach to hospitality and tourism education. 

The Asian Wave

The business of hospitality has shifted its centre of gravity to Asia. It's only natural. Asian culture is traditionally welcoming. Caring attention to detail is the hallmark of Asian service. But beyond this innate cultural "software", there are other factors behind the dynamic growth of tourism and hospitality businesses in Asia. In airlines, airports, attractions and hotels, the region ranks among the world's best - not just a claimed position, but voted as such by experienced travellers. Infrastructure has been improved; marketing has taken on a global scale. Leading it all is a new, but now-established, group of Asian-based multinationals in the hospitality field.

No other part of the region is better situated to ride this Asian wave than Hong Kong. Close by China’s mainland, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and financial powerhouse is enjoying its share of China's phenomenal growth and prosperity. At the same time, it continues to hold its position as Asia's most international city: multilingual, sophisticated, a preferred business and pleasure destination for travellers from both East and West. Where else to better locate a seat of teaching and learning for the hospitality industry?

Thus, the School of Hotel and Tourism Management is uniquely positioned, not just to ride the Asian wave, but to lead it in educational excellence.
