What will I learn?


The first year of this program is designed to prepare students to work in hospitality and tourism businesses by providing courses aimed at developing a fundamental business and customer service background. Students will study through classroom based course work and lab based lunchtime fine dining service in Jane’s restaurant. Students will also obtain certifications in First Aid and It's Good Business. While a one year exit-certificate is available, it is recommended that students complete a diploma to be most competitive in the marketplace after graduation.

In the second year of the program, students will select a major course of study in one of two areas:

The Hotel and Restaurant Management major focuses primarily on developing skills to work in the food and beverage and accommodation areas of the tourism industry. The courses are delivered from a management perspective and include classroom and lab based course work. Hospitality Simulation offered in the final term is the capstone course in which you work in teams to resolve a variety of case studies, drawing on your academic and work experience from previous terms.

The Tourism Management major concentrates on building skills in a variety of business models in a variety of Tourism sub-sectors including attractions, events and tourism services. In a capstone course in the final term, students will work on teams during Tourism Entrepreneurship, to develop a visitor attraction using skills learned and developed from previous academic/work terms.
