What is hospitality management?
Hospitality management is a diverse and interdisciplinary field that involves overseeing the general activities and day-to-day operations in areas such as catering, entertainment and leisure, events planning, and hotel/guest house management.
Hospitality managers are required to work in restaurants, hotels, guest houses, holiday resorts, catering companies, events planning companies, and even in public sector organisations such as hospitals and universities. Depending on the precise roles in which they are employed, hospitality managers may be required to:
- Train and supervise staff.
- Manage budgets.
- Ensure that facilities and inventories are properly maintained.
- Answer customer queries and ensure customer satisfaction.
- Oversee the maintenance of financial and administrative records.
Why should I study a hospitality management course?
A hospitality management course will equip you with a broad range of knowledge and skills required to perform the role of hospitality manager effectively and efficiently. While formal training is often not a prerequisite for securing a job in the hospitality industry, management training is recommended if you plan to move into a supervisory role at some point in your career.

- Staff training
