Consider a degree in Hospitality Management… here’s why

Despite the economic crisis that has impacted many industries in many areas of the world , the hospitality and tourism industry remains among the stablest and fastest growing areas of employment.

Here are some reasons why.

The hospitality industry generates revenue for local economies directly when tourists spend money on hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, and other tourism-related services. As such, the hospitality industry is important not only to communities but to national economy.

Hospitality provides essential services for travelers, as an important part of every vacation or trip. Imagine visiting a new place for the first time and you receive bad hospitality, chances are that you will never return to that place ever again. This is why taking professional courses to understand this industry is a valuable asset nowadays.

Hospitality study involves learning how to oversee the general activities and day-to-day operations in areas such as catering, events planning and hotel management. Such a course will equip you with a broad range of skills and knowledge required to perform the role of a hospitality manager; skills such as problem-solving, leadership, communication, staff training, and customer service. It builds understanding and appreciation among other cultures. Customer service and satisfaction are important which requires friendly and service-driven staff.

Here are a few more benefits of being in the hospitality industry:

You travel the world

A job in the Hospitality sector will give you the chance to see many new places. Someday you might even find yourself working on a luxury boat cruise.

Learn vital skills

Leadership and customer service skills aren’t only important in the hospitality industry, they are vital in any industry. Often when hiring managers/ recruiters are looking for someone with soft skills they often prefer someone with a hospitality degree than someone with other abilities.

Evolving industry 

It is one of the fastest-growing industries with the potential of creating millions of jobs in the next coming years.

A career without limits

A hospitality degree prepares you for a successful career and many high-level positions. The other interesting fact about this industry is that you will never be limited in your job search.

 “Do what you do so well that they want to see it again and bring their friends.” – Maya Angelou. This quote is self-explanatory in a way that if you deliver a satisfying experience to clients, chances are that they will come back and recommend your services to their friends.
