The Hospitality Business is the fastest growing industry in the 21st century. A degree in hospitality management will open the doors to a wide range of career pathways. It is also one of the world’s most dynamic fields of employment with positive trends forecasted for the coming years.
As the world globalizes and distances seem to become shorter, more and more people are in need of accommodation away from home. Demands for excellent service have become stronger as more and more people travel around the world. As a result of this, the industry is facing many challenges such as dynamics in marketing channels, shortages of skills, more demanding consumers, emerging markets in tourism, development of new hotel concepts and sustainable entrepreneurship.
The demand for better qualified and professionally trained hospitality managers continues to increase. Social, technical and demographic changes suggest that the industry's growth will extend well into the 21st century. In addition to traditional hospitality venues, there are excellent opportunities for advancement in multi-unit franchise management, corporate staff positions with national and international corporations, and opportunities within the travel and tourism industry.
