Bachelor of Tourism, Hospitality and Events Management

This program has developed leading to three distinct options namely; Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management.

The course uses an “entrepretality” approach i.e. a combination of the words “entrepreneurship” and “hospitality”. Entrepretality focuses on the process of using available resources to create value to a customer rather than simply starting a new venture.

In other words, given the nature of hospitality and tourism industry, the industry should focus on creating a service-value proposition instead of focusing on new venture creation only.

It is understood that most hospitality and tourism graduates would remain employed in organizations and never become independent entrepreneurs.

The skills that they acquire will help them to act entrepreneurially within the company.
